Summary:

This series provides the Western world with deeper understanding of the diversity of Muslim viewpoints about Islam. Muslims from many countries speak out about what they perceive as the menace from the West. This film examines the reasons for more radical interpretations of the Quran in Algeria, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Analysis of the jihad helps Westerners perceive why some muslims believe that they can escape Westernization only through violence, how one man's terrorism may be another man's patriotism. How then can differing cultures find a common basis for mutual respect?
