I just came across these four short clips from an interview I gave a few months ago — so impromptu and off the cuff that I’d forgotten I did it. Tarzan and Jane come up in the first one, when I’m asked about interfaith gatherings, which I generally find kind of stilted. “We tend to get together as me-Tarzan-you-Jane-we-friends,” I said. “That is, me-Jew-you-Muslim-we-friends. We need to get beyond that. We need to see each other first as people…. talk about anything but religion… eat together, two or three or four at a time, over our own dining tables…”
On the other hand, swinging around on those vines could be fun.
It seems I also had a thing or two to say about responding to Islamophobia, and about women in Islam:
That’s a beautiful sentiment. I strive to have a way with words as you certainly do.
Lesley…..is not faith the meaning of your life ?
Repeat: agnostic. I have no idea what “the meaning of my life” may be. Or indeed if there is any. I do my best to live it, that’s all.
I love your mind… I love work, and by extension, love the person behind the work. May Allah bless you! 🙂
Correction: love your work
I think it got taken down, Lesley. At least the link is not showing up.
Just tried it on both my computer and my iPad, and it seems okay. Your glitch or mine, Roberto? Anyone else having trouble?
It’s back. Maybe it was a gremlin in my computer.
