It seems each day our fellow Americans are bombarded with negative images or stereotypes about Islam and Muslims. Some of the blame belongs to extremists calling themselves Muslims and masquerading their political aims under the guise of religion through any means they deem necessary, no matter how barbaric the methodology. Sometimes the blame goes to sources that seek to sensationalize extremism by covering only the most aberrant practitioners of hate and violence as “official voices” of Islam.
And admittedly too often, well meaning leaders with the best of intention have not created the communication platform and infrastructure to help media and other institutions connect more easily with legitimate voices of Al-Islam, and so many negative images go unchallenged. In either case, there is a duty upon sincere Muslims to project the correct image of Muslim life, including encouraging interfaith collaboration…The CWSC Speakers Bureau is established for just such purpose.
