Why Do They Hate Us; Understanding Radical Islam

Thu, Aug 14, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

Why Do They Hate Us; Understanding Radical Islam 

Why Islamic radicals hate America and the West will be discussed at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled "Why Do They Hate Us? Understanding Radical Islam," features filmed interviews with Middle East experts Carl Medearis and  Gregory Johnsen, as well as best-selling author Mark Bowden (
Black Hawk Down and The Finish: The Killing of Osama Bin Laden).
"There are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, and far less than 1 percent might be radical enough to become terrorists," says Medearis, an advisor on Arab affairs to members of the U.S. Congress. Medearis, who lived for a dozen years in Beirut, identifies key forces that lead to radicalizing Muslims and suggests how common ground might be found.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café meets @The Eleanor Kahle Center 1315 Hillcrest Ave in West Toledo from 7-8 pm every Thursday. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
