Why Talk ISIS in Iowa? Exploring the many meanings of Jihad

Please register HERE for the free event.
 On September 16, speakers from the worlds of  national security, education and Muslim, Christian, and civic leadership will gather in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They will discuss the many meanings of jihad as reflected in the life of Emir Abdelkader, after whom a town was name in Iowa in 1846. Considered Algeria’s George Washington, this 19th century Arab scholar/warrior/statesman counted among his admirers Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, and Pope Pius IX.

Headlined Abdelkader vs. ISIS: The Many Meanings of Jihad, the day-long forum builds on the annual Abdelkader Global Leadership Prize essay contests sponsored by the Iowa-based Abdelkader Education Project (AEP), open to high school and college students around the country. The forum honors students who have best articulated how Abdelkader’s lived Islam offers an example both to leaders today and can serve as an antidote to both islamophobia and the radicalization of youth drawn to the allures of ISIS ideology.
