Tuesday night PBS aired a BBC documentary about the life of Muhammad for which I was interviewed, and a small part of the interview briefly appears in the documentary, amid an avalanche of material about how Muhammad was essentially a modern-day Gandhi. This led to a small uproar on Twitter, with Leftists and Islamic supremacists tweeting angrily to PBS asking how they could dare to air the views (even for just a few seconds) of a hate-filled bigot like me.Surely not a "modern-day Gandhi." No matter. It is abundantly clear that da'wa has made inroads into public TV.
BTW, in case you were wondering, the Spencer-Geller talk in these parts is still a go.
