Assembly Series: Arsalan Iftikhar “Scapegoats: How Islamophobia Helps Our Enemies and Threatens Our Freedoms”

  • Thursday, October 20, 2016 • 4:30 pm
  • Bryan Hall Moot Courtroom, Anheuser-Busch Hall

Rabbi Ferdinand Isserman Lecture

Why You Should Listen:

“Whenever some violent lunatic snaps and claims some kind of warped justification for his murderous acts as a so-called Muslim warrior, it’s not his damaged childhood or the flood of assault weapons in America or the climate of unrelenting violence in our country that gets blamed – it’s Islam, an ancient, Abrahamic religion.”  Arsalan Iftikhar

Assemble. Listen. Learn.

The Assembly Series, Washington University’s signature lecture series, enjoys a long and rich tradition. For most of its 62-year history, its programs were held Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in Graham Chapel, and no classes were scheduled so the entire campus community could assemble.

Assembly Series programs are always free and open to the public, although some programs may have limited seating. Please check this site for new information or changes in the schedule, and subscribe to receive announcements.
