    A leading moderate Muslim looks into the heart of Muslim/Islamic identity The terrorist attack on 9/11 and subsequent attacks in Bali, Madrid, and London were for much of the non-Muslim world a brutal introduction to a religion and culture that it had, until then, not thought much about. In the six years since 9/11, Muslims and the motivating principles of their faith have undergone severe scrutiny by writers and opinion makers alike-while still failing to address a key issue: the distinction between Islamists and Muslims. In Chasing a Mirage, Canadian journalist Tarek Fatah analyzes the diverging aspirations that separate the Islamist from the Muslim, and what the implications of an "Islamic State" vs. "state of Islam" have for the world's one billion Muslims and their five billion non-Muslim neighbors. Tarek Fatah (Toronto, ON, Canada) is cofounder of the Canadian Muslim Conference and guest host of The Agenda, a popular current affairs program on TVOntario.
