PBS films on mosque controversy now online

We just heard from our friends at 20,000 Dialogues about this excellent collection of resources focusing on the recent controversy involving the construction of a Mosque near Ground Zero in New York City…

“We have created www.groundzerodialogue.org, a new website where you can view several of our award-winning PBS films online, in their entirety, at no cost. We have chosen these films because they speak directly to the issue. They include: “Talking through Walls: How the Struggle to Build a Mosque United a Community”, “Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet” and “Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think”.”

“In addition, as part of our ongoing 20,000 Dialogues project (www.20000dialogues.org), you and your friends can get free DVD’s and discussion guides of these films to show in book clubs, classrooms, and houses of worship. Finally, to bolster the impact of our online efforts, we are working with PBS stations around the country to rebroadcast these films.”

“Whatever your position on the specifics of the Community Center, all Americans need to take the time to understand the broader issues at stake, get to know our American Muslim neighbors, and remember our nation’s highest principles.  Through this process, we will all come out better.  Please share these films with your friends and colleagues, and help promote peace.”
