The story of The 99

So here is another interesting TED talk (okay, I’m a big fan…). I posted one a few weeks back that was concerned with developing social organizations to fight extremism around the world, especially in regards to Islam. The speaker in that talk is friends with the author of The Islamist which I read a few weeks ago. They are working primarily with college aged and young adults. This is definitely an important segment of the population to be addressing. I am encouraged by their efforts. I am also intrigued by the work of Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa. His work is aimed at a younger, but no less important audience. He has developed a comic book series based on Islamic culture. Sound interesting? Check out his talk.
