Tabsir, Insight on Islam and the Middle East.

Erkan, a scholar, blogger and much-admired Turkish friend of mine, linked to this website.

You can read: a statement of Concerned Scholars about Islamophobia in the 2008 U. S. Election Campaign and find resources about the False Claim that Senator Obama is a Muslim.

In their About, Tabsir writes:
• We are scholars concerned about stereotypes, misinformation and propaganda spread in the media and academic forums on Islam and the Middle East.

• We are committed to fair, open-ended scholarly assessment of the current political issues of terrorism, gender inequality and intolerance.

• We encourage informed debate rather than partisan posturing on all issues.

• We believe in active involvement as public intellectuals communicating the best of available research.
