In light of the San Bernardino shootings, the Paris attacks and the rise of ISIS, Muslim scholar and jurist Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, meets with students to shed light on what the religion of Islam is about and how to understand the recent acts of ugliness committed in Islam's name given its tenets and theology. Dr. Abou El Fadl explains how the fanatic fringe differs from mainstream Muslims and how to tell the difference. He discusses how radicalization takes place, how ISIS recruits its followers and how Western countries can move from being part of the problem to part of the solution. An important accelerated short course for understanding what Muslims believe and how to put current events in perspective.
