Reza Aslan fled Iran when he was 7 years old.  Thirty years later, Aslan has become an outspoken expert on the Middle East and religion.  He says the recent Middle East uprisings show regimes can "no longer just ignore the will of the people."  Reza Aslan talks about anti-Muslim sentiment, the ripple effect of Arab Spring (the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria), tensions with Israel, and the sparks that fly when you cross religion and politics. 
 
Reza Aslan speaks on a panel on "Theism and Atheism" with Karen King on Thursday, Oct. 13, at UNLV's Student Union Ballroom.  The event is sponsored by UNLV's Black Mountain Institute.
 
GUESTS
Reza Aslan, Creative Writing Instructor, UCR; author, No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam

You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
