#Cyberpeacefare #What Everyone Needs to Know About Islam #John L. Esposito

QUOTES/EXCERPTS:

- "Islam is second largest of world's religions. Third largest religion in America.

- We had always talked about the Judeo-Christian connection but never about the Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition.

-Why, if Muslims recognize and revere many of the major patriarchs and prophets of Judaism and Christianity (including Abraham, Moses and Jesus and God's revealed books, the Torah and the Messages (Gospels) of Jesus ?

-Many of the questions, which have come from people in very diverse audiences, reflect a predisposition to believe that there is something profoundly wrong with Islam and Muslims.

-The encounter between the West and the Muslim world, between Islam and the Judeo-Christians is not a clash of two separate and antithetical worlds.  Jews, Christians and Muslims are children of Abraham, part of a Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition.

-If we are ever to achieve such mutual understanding, an essential part of the package must be knowledge of what Islam teaches and what Muslims believe about Islam as well as what we believe about them. 

(Highly recommend read book for educated views about common heritage and tenets of Judaism-Christianity-Islam.  Too much Islamic Ignorance and phobia out there in US Presidential Elections.  Also, checkout Wikipedia Cyberpeacefare, Interfaith Interoperability Dialogue.)  Need differentiate between Radical- Militant-Extreme  Islam Political Terrorism and Moderate Islamic Citizens.  CyberPeaceGadfly

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality?
