Stories about Quran Burning Reveal Shortcomings of U.S. Media's Coverage of Islam

On September 14 Poynter on Line pegged my NPR piece as follows:

"One refreshing take that did address tough questions came from essayist Anisa Mehdi on NPR. Mehdi reminds those who would support burning the Quran that it contains verses that acknowledge and praise Jesus and Mary. Likewise, she reminds Muslims overseas who might commit acts of violence as a result of the act that they, too, should review Muslim principles that favor self-discipline and Quranic verses that warn against lawlessness."

Thanks to Cate Malek, Development Coordinator of the Masar Ibrahim el Khalil/Abraham's Path ( for bringing this shout out to my attention.
