Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

Whatever happened to courage?

Being that I claim to be slanted toward the Islamic belief structure yet I do not really practice, many will still consider me to be just that-Muslim. That said, I don't know. I will like to say that I do not want to fully take the leap into this life until the moderate Muslim population gets courage to fight against what they claim to be against. Terrorist cells have an uncanny way of taking dignity and courage away from those who are non-violent. I really hate the way some people will say "that is not Islam". Yeah...yeah...I know..but why are you not going public against violence? I know things around the world are not this simple. For example-Poverty can be eliminated very easily through a vegetarian diet but "little things" like despotic government corruption get in the way of human lives.....

These are just thoughts in my mind. I welcome comments or a respectful debate.
