The son of a terrorist speaks of peace

My friend Juliet in Paris just sent this very moving TED talk by the pseudonymous son of a man convicted of murderous fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. Beautiful. And he makes a point of talking about the influence of the Daily Show and its host Jon Stewart, "a Jewish comedian" more like a father to him than his own father. Highly recommended.
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.
