Review: From Hiroshima to London by Imam Zaid Shakir

This talk is absolutely necessary for U.S. Muslims. The central claim is that until we U.S. citizens can discuss the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and the hijackings/bombings of September 11, 2001 together as acts of politically motivated violence against unarmed and unsuspecting civilians, all our efforts to separate Islam and terrorism in the minds of non-Muslims will be in vain.

The unfortunate thing is I can find no outlet which sells this CD! If I find out where people can buy it, in sha Allah I'll add it to this posting.
