ICRD Monthly Update – August 8, 2014
Countering Violent Extremism
With violence running rampant around the globe, it is past time to address the problem head-on.
Toward this end, ICRD, in association with Layalina Productions, has produced a documentary that examines the approaches taken by three dissimilar communities to combat the violent extremism associated with (1) the madrasas (religious schools) in Pakistan, (2) the most recent civil war in Lebanon, and (3) gang warfare in Los Angeles.Click here to view the video, and please feel free to show it or any part of it (with appropriate attribution) to those you feel could benefit most from its insights.
For those of you who were unable to attend our annual Faith-in-Action Award dinner onMay 30, you can watch the award presentation here and our State of the Center reporthere. The former is particularly helpful in understanding the real story behind the so-called Ground Zero Mosque, and the latter will give you a current snapshot of our work in Saudi Arabia, Syria, and elsewhere.
