The Middle East has been a focus of world concern for years. The latest concern is that of the terrorist group, ISIS, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. They have beheaded Westerners and called for all Muslims to kill disbelievers. Recently, leaders of Charlotte's Muslim community met to send another message: the condemnation of violence by ISIS, calling their vision a false picture of Islam. We explore that further on the edition of Charlotte Talks.
