A Look at Daveed Gartenstein-Ross

Filed under: Islamophobia — Tags: , , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 6:06 pm

There is a very interesting article on Daveed Gartenstein-Ross by Brother Umar Lee . Gartenstein-Ross is a self-proclaimed expert on Islam and terrorism. If you recall, this new young darling of the Islamophobic movement became famous after pretending to be Muslim for a year and then seeking to gain fame for his tales of adventure with Muslims.

His career now is based on cashing in on the year he spent pretending to be a Muslim. and writing books that promote negative Muslim stereotypes. One of his notably unsuccessful efforts was an attempt to generate fear of a new Muslim youth center recently opened in Dallas, TX.

Below is an editorial challenging the sincerity and truthfulness of Gartenstein-Ross and those like him who present distorted information about Muslims in America.  In this case, these distortions were designed to make the American public more fearful of Muslims while he profited from the enterprise.

My response to DGR is here.
