For some samples of what Aslan believes, check the following:
- Truth and power: For many Muslims today, ‘interreligious dialogue’ often looks suspiciously like religious coercion.
- Keep It Whole: The US must not allow Iraq to fracture into Sunni, Shia and Kurdish statelets.
- The war for Islam: Osama bin Laden may go down in history not only as the murderous criminal who declared holy war on the United States, but also as a radical figure in what has come to be called the Islamic Reformation--the epic struggle to define the faith of over a billion people.
- Depicting Mohammed: Why I’m offended by the Danish cartoons of the prophet.
- Democracy of believers: Iraq should look to Israel for a model that combines democracy and religious belief.
