Over the last few years, Moustafa Bayoumi has been an extra in Sex and the City 2 playing a generic Arab, a terrorist suspect (or at least his namesake "Mustafa Bayoumi" was) in a detective novel, the subject of a trumped-up controversy because a book he had written was seen by right-wing media as pushing an "anti-American, pro-Islam" agenda, and was asked by a US citizenship officer to drop his middle name of Mohamed. Others have endured far worse fates. Sweeping arrests following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 led to the incarceration and deportation of thousands of Arabs and Muslims, based almost solely on their national origin and immigration status. The NYPD, with help from the CIA, has aggressively spied on Muslims in the New York area as they go about their ordinary lives, from noting where they get their hair cut to eavesdropping on conversations in cafés. In This Muslim American Life, Moustafa Bayoumi reveals what the War on Terror looks like from the vantage point of Muslim Americans, highlighting the profound effect this surveillance has had on how they live their lives. To be a Muslim American today often means to exist in an absurd space between exotic and dangerous, victim and villain, simply because of the assumptions people carry about you. In gripping essays, Bayoumi exposes how contemporary politics, movies, novels, media experts, and more have together produced a culture of fear and suspicion that not only willfully forgets the Muslim-American past, but also threatens all of our civil liberties in the present. Illustration and design by James K. Hindle. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Ganim. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/026464/bk_adbl_026464_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - 1848, Kaiserreich, Imperialismus, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 1,0, Universität Vechta; früher Hochschule Vechta (Institut für Geschichte und historische Landesforschung), Veranstaltung: Friedrich II. - der Sultan von Lucera, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Verhältnis des Staufers Friedrich II. zum Islam, hinsichtlich der Faktoren Politik, Wissenschaft und Kultur. Auf den ersten Blick erscheint Friedrich dabei als Person, die die verschiedenen Kulturen verbunden und die wie keine andere Person ihre Zeit und vor allem auch die Nachwelt in ihren Bann gezogen hat. Dies zeigt sich auch an den positiven Bewertungen, die Friedrich zugeschrieben werden. Es sind zunächst vier Aspekte, die Friedrich in das geschilderte Licht setzen und die schliesslich dazu führen, dass sein Bild von Mythen und Legenden umrankt wird.Erstens Friedrichs Heimat Sizilien, die als Brücke zur hochstehenden Kultur des Orients aufgefasst wird und die durch geschäftige Handelsbeziehungen eine rege kulturelle Wechselbeziehung etablieren konnte. Von diesem Punkt wird überwiegend zweitens Friedrichs breites kulturelles Interesse und seine Toleranz gegenüber den Juden und Muslimen abgeleitet. Das dritte Leitmotiv ist, dass Friedrich als Herrscher begriffen wird, dem es allein durch arabische Sprachkenntnisse und geschickte Diplomatie gelang, einem islamischen Herrscher Jerusalem abzunehmen. Somit erscheint der Staufer schliesslich viertens als vernünftiger Herrscher inmitten von religiösen Fanatikern. Massgeblich verantwortlich für dieses Bild ist wohl eine 1927 erschienene Biographie von Ernst Kantorowicz über Friedrich. Ziel dieser Hausarbeit soll es nun sein, anhand von vier zentralen Gliederungspunkten zu überprüfen, inwieweit das eben geschilderte Bild stimmig und stringent sowie überhaupt historisch belegbar ist. Dazu sollen auch arabische Chronisten Gehör finden, unter anderem Ibn Wasil. Die vier Punkte sind Friedrichs Kindheit in Palermo, die von ihm veranlasste Deportation der sizilianischen Sarazenen nach Lucera, der Kreuzzug Friedrichs inklusive der Verhandlungen mit Al-Kamil und abschliessend das Leben am Hofe Friedrichs unter Berücksichtigung der orientalischen Einflüsse und dem Kontakt Friedrichs zur islamisch-arabischen Philosophie und Naturwissenschaft.

Secularism Confronts Islam

The denunciation of fundamentalism in France, embodied in the law against the veil and the deportation of imams, has shifted into a systematic attack on all Muslims and Islam. This hostility is rooted in the belief that Islam cannot be integrated into French& mdash;and, consequently, secular and liberal-society. However, as Olivier Roy makes clear in this book, Muslim intellectuals have made it possible for Muslims to live concretely in a secularized world while maintaining the identity of a 'true believer.' They have formulated a language that recognizes two spaces: that of religion and that of secular society. Western society is unable to recognize this process, Roy argues, because of a cultural bias that assumes religious practice is embedded within a specific, traditional culture that must be either erased entirely or forced to coexist in a neutral, multicultural space. Instead, Roy shows that new forms of religiosity, such as Islamic fundamentalism and Christian evangelicalism, have come to thrive in post-traditional, secular contexts precisely because they remain detached from any cultural background. In recognizing this, Roy recasts the debate concerning Islam and democracy. Analyzing the French case in particular, in which the tension between Islam and the conception of Western secularism is exacerbated, Roy makes important distinctions between Arab and non-Arab Muslims, hegemony and tolerance, and the role of the umma and the sharia in Muslim religious life. He pits Muslim religious revivalism against similar movements in the West, such as evangelical Protestantism and Jehovah's Witnesses, and refutes the myth of a single 'Muslim community' by detailing different groups and their inability to overcome their differences. Roy's rare portrait of the realities of immigrant Muslim life offers a necessary alternative to the popular specter of an 'Islamic threat.' Supporting his arguments with his extensive research on Islamic history, sociology, and politics, Roy brilliantly demonstrates the limits of our understanding of contemporary Islamic religious practice in the West and the role of Islam as a screen onto which Western societies project their own identity crisis.
