Eric Walberg on Ramadan, Islam & the West

Tuesday, August 23rd, 9-10 a.m Pacific (noon Eastern) on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Guest: Eric Walberg, author of Postmodern Imperialism. Eric's new essay is entitled Islam and Europe: An equal and opposite reaction: "So goes one of the fundamental laws of physics. In the face of recent 'actions' in the West - economic crisis and rampant Islamophobia, there is an inexorable 'reaction', as the eternal values of Islam continue to manifest themselves." We'll discuss Islamic spirituality - a hot topic during these last ten days of Ramadan - as well as the ways that Islam can offer solutions to some of today's most pressing problems.

  1. ‎"Ramadan exemplifies the powerful spiritual calling of Islam. Dry fasting is more a test of the spirit, the will, proof of devotion, than just some health gimmick. And it is precisely this cultivation of mass 'mind over matter' that frustrates Western secularists, so used to indulging every consumer fetish on a whim." -Eric Walberg
