The most amazing TEDTalk you have ever heard

If you’re raised on dogma and hate, can you choose a different path? Zak Ebrahim was just seven years old when his father helped plan the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His story is shocking, powerful, and ultimately, inspiring.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.
Find closed captions and translated subtitles in many languages at http://www.ted.com/translate

Let's go to the videotape.

If you put a young God-fearing Muslim in a room
with an Islamic radical and an Islamic moderate, both trying
to win over the young person’s soul, the radical would
win again and again. It is because the canon –
hadiths, sira and Koran – are massively stacked in
favor of the radical position. Yes, there are violent
passages in the Bible too, but it is an uphill battle to
build a violent theology based on them. With the Koran,
building a violent theology is like rolling balls down a
hill. It is a huge uphill struggle building a
“moderate” Islamic theology on the basis of the
Islamic canon alone.
