(was 02.14.2010)

Many of us first met Islam on 9/11 with planes slamming into the World Trade Center – not a very good first impression. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, a proper introduction, as we talk with Muslims and Westerners who are redefining our relationship. From a Danish cartoonist with a fatwa over his head to the founder of the Muslim Punk movement. Meeting each other again, next time.
