Is peace a possibility between Islam and the West? This question has been asked a few times since September 11, 2001. On Thu., Sept. 23, a lecture and panel discussion was set up in Craigie Hall to debate the issue of conflict between the West and Islam. The event's speaker Dr. Mohamed Elmasery, President of the Canadian Islamic Congress, did not shy away from expressing his opinion.
Elmasery's thoughts on the war were quite clear. He said that Islam is not the victims, but instead the Muslims are.
