Islam: The Closing of the Muslim Mind

Arlington, VA (May 31, 2011)— On Sunday evenings, June 5 and 12, at 7:30 PM at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, the Institute of Catholic Culture will host two lectures about the current disarray in the Muslim world and what has lead this society to the brink of all-out war. Most Westerners are shocked and frightened by the behavior coming out of the Islamic world—not only because it is violent, but also because it is seemingly inexplicable. What went wrong?

Foreign policy expert Robert R. Reilly uncovers the root of our contemporary crisis, underscored by the death of Osama bin Laden: a pivotal struggle waged within the Muslim world nearly a millennium ago. In a heated battle over the role of reason, the side of irrationality won. The deformed theology that resulted, Reilly reveals, produced the spiritual pathology of Islamism, and a deeply dysfunctional culture (ISI Books). It is intellectual suicide that has caused modern Islamism.

Robert R. Reilly is a senior fellow at the American Foreign Policy Council and has written for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Reader’s Digest, and National Review, among many other publications. A former director of the Voice of America, he has taught at the National Defense University and served in the White House and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Mr. Reilly is a member of the board of the Middle East Media Research Institute.
Join the Mr. Robert Reilly and the Institute of Catholic Culture for this evening series onthe roots of the modern Islamic crisis. St. Ambrose Catholic Church, 3829 Woodburn Rd., Annandale, VA.
