August 16, 2010

Following last week’s interviews, Maydan Institute Executive Director Haroon Moghul was asked by Religion Dispatches to write a companion piece.  The essay, titled “Eid on 9/11 Anniversary: A September Sermon?” was published today.

The Council of Foreign Relations, the non-partisan think tank which also publishes Foreign Affairs, has just published a much-needed backgrounder on the world’s second-largest intergovernmental body, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).

Maydan Institute’s ED, Haroon Moghul, was consulted for the backgrounder and is featured.  Please read and share the full document, as it represents a valuable resource for understanding an increasingly prominent global organization and relationships between America and the West.
