Recently, University of California Berkeley officials cancelled a planned speech by right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos following vigorous protests, prompting President Trump to suggest withdrawing federal funds from the campus. In light of Trump’s connections to the ultra-right, what will be the nature of political protest in the Trump years? Author and columnist David Talbot examines this issue. Then Arif Humayun summarizes the principles of Islam, and explains why the advocacy of terror has no basis in authentic Islamic doctrine.
David Talbot has authored books on US political history, and writes a column at the San Francisco Chronicle. Arif Humayan is a cofounder of the multifaith organization Circle of Peace.
