Inquisitive Minds Podcast Critical Thinking on History, Religion, Politics and Culture

In this week's episode, we will discuss three recent terror attacks through the lens of propaganda used by IS and other jihadist groups or sympathizers. What is the impact of this terror propaganda on social media plateforms? How much credibility should be given to "news" relegated by some jihadists channels? In what way does such propaganda provide an alternate version and interpretation of events?

The month of August has been quite violent as people have witnessed the live killing of two reporters in the US, the murder of two family members in an Ikea store in Sweden, and a terrorist attack on a train between Paris and Amsterdam. This forces us to reflect on important issues such as immigration, religious violence, radicalization, culture, politics, economics, security, public policy, education and political correctness. We discuss these various events and their implications in this week's episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast.

On May 3rd, 2015, a group of people gathered for a cartoon exhibit depicting the prophet Mohammad was attacked by two jihadists in Garland, Texas. Some have decried the event as a purposeful provocation of Muslims, while others see it as a fundamental right to freedom of speech. Are the organizers of the event anti-Muslim bigots or should their actions be understood as a fight against the Islamization of America? Is organizing a cartoon competition of Mohammad irresponsible behavior and are such actions "Islamophobic"? What exactly is "Islamophobia"? Are the Garland drawings of Mohammad similar to the Charlie Hebdo caricatures? In this week's podcast, we discuss the Garland attack and the questions that transpired from this event.
