I only share the NY Times articles that have special meaning or interest to me.
Today this article appeared.
What Does Islam Look Like?
By HOLLAND COTTER
"A number of new shows tell us very different things about the
reception in the West of a cultural category called 'Islam'."
"THE West and Islam are on a cultural collision course. That's the
best-selling fiction that many people — politicians, religious leaders
and the media on both sides of the equation — are working overtime to
turn into fact. Actually, it's a very old story, and art is routinely
pulled into it."
