    Assalamu alaykum guys,

    I just heard this and liked the flow of it and the light hearted nature – Muslims need more platforms like this to speak about issues openly. I particularly, liked the openness on the how the ‘white’ privilege issue was discussed and thanks to Jonathan for his openness.

    Just on the topic of Turkey however, I am surprised the ‘biggest elephant’ in the room was not spoken about. There is great fitnah amongst Muslims in the country – whilst a lot of Muslims support the government, the so called ‘Islamic government’ is waging war on the biggest Sunnni religious movement, the Hizmet movement in the country – and it affects Muslims around the world and particularly in America.

    I am not Turkish, but my Turkish friends’, so many in the states have their families incarcerated and even tortured. Now I know the turkish government has a lot of money to spread amongst the Muslim community organizations – but I expected from a show such as this – that they will not shy away from discussing the topic.

    Maybe you guys are not aware of the issues, but it would be good if you addressed this issue in an upcoming episode of your show – how Muslims in America (Turkish and non-turkish) are being affected – perhaps invite people from all sides of the debate and discuss it.

    If you need any help in getting contacts from the victims of the witch hunt in Turkey – I can offer my help.
