Nabeel Jabbour has excellent credentials: He's a native of Syria, a resident of Egypt for fifteen years, a possessor of advanced theological degrees, and the author of a book on Islamic fundamentalism in Egypt. In this lecture, Jabbour outlines the tenets of Islam, addressing the issues of compassion and understanding between faiths. He attempts to answer the questions, "What do Muslim people believe?" "Is Islam evil?" and "Why is America a lightning rod for the anger of many Muslim fundamentalists?" Jabbour makes distinctions between the Muslim people and the Islamic sect of fanaticism.

"This is a lecture about Islam recorded shortly after the September 11 attacks on America. Nabeel Jabbour has excellent credentials: He's a native of Syria, a resident of Egypt for 15 years, a possessor of advanced theological degrees, and the author of a book on Islamic fundamentalism in Egypt. But one's expectations for the lecture are not met because the recording is of an inferior quality and the lecture is not clearly organized, although there are some excellent parts. During the question-and-answer period, one can clearly hear only Jabbour's responses. Jabbour appears to be an excellent resource, but this tape does not take advantage of his abilities. M.L.C.
