PRI's the World had Tariq Ramadan on last night in response to a segment they had with Paul Berman, who had apparently criticized Mr. Ramadan. It's an ok interview, but without a lot of substance. However, the very end is the most telling. He says something to the effect that when people interview him, they're constantly asking him to condemn this, condemn that, to say what Islam is not, but that it would be better if we spend time talking about what Islam IS. Oh how I wish that could be the case.
In a previous post, I linked to an excellent lecture by Mr. Ramadan, with a lot more substance, and taking a positive, not a "is not" approach to Islam. If you haven't listened to it, make time and listen.
