I found it under religion - March 2007.
The acoustics of the room are bad bad bad. If you could post a written version I would appreciate it. Or at least post the titles of the books mentioned.
I wish this lecture could have an impact on the debate within the government on what to do about Af/Ir/Pac.
Thanks for the information.

For what it's worth, this piece at Huffington Post (http://tinyurl.com/y94zlwv) offers some direct insight, albeit second hand, into Nadal Malik Hasan's character and thinking from another Muslim soldier stationed at Ft. Hood who is an acquaintance of Hasan's and frequently prayed with him at the mosque, most recently earlier on the day of the murders. The piece is written by a friend of the acquaintance who is a published novelist and film maker. I think the SST community will find this of interest.

Thanks for the lecture posting. Too much ignorance about Islam for people NOT to be surprised at the facts. As in "Where's the hierarchy?"
The big tent version of Islam you mentioned that some in Turkey are exploring sounds intriguing.
Those recommended books are expensive! The Venture of Islam by Marshall Hodgson is published in three volumes. I'll look up Caravan by Carleton Coon next time I'm at Powell's Books.

grego, in case Powell's can not oblige, here is a version of Caravan. Bonus: a search on Carelton Coon at that site turns up footage of the old "What in the World."

Here is the link to Col. Lnag's excellent lecture on Islam.

Nice choice of picture. Great wine.

Seems it's not as well kept a secret as once it was, much like this site.

Listened to the lecture mentioned a couple of year ago. Well worth the time.
