REMEMBERING UZZA (SEP 2019)
If Islam was explained to me in a pub
Remembering Uzza is a ground-breaking transformative
narrative that has the
potential to change the course of things to come.
Uzza should be of interest to both
Muslims (Arabs in particular) and non-Muslims. The frank discussion about
scriptures that the chosen venue makes inevitable will undoubtedly lead to, we
foolishly hope, only
mild cases of dogmatic distress.
The ultimate goal is a television production where
the venue could be changed to a pub in the States if necessary. Such a production would more than pay for
itself, even without advertisers, if the book, which takes the reader beyond
the script, was offered to viewers during the telecast as PBS often does.

ignorance that will be our undoing.
