EDIT: The video is no longer availble, which is a shame.
In the aftermath of the attacks on Charlie Hebdo the strong anti-muslim sentiment allready present in many parts of the West increased markedly. To remind us all that painting with a broad brush never contributes to understanding and respect here is a video of Reza Aslan interviewed by two CNN reporters.
Reza Aslan is an Iranian-American writer, scholar of religious studies and a professor of creative writing at the University of California, Riverside. He is also a member of the American Academy of Religion.
