Throughout this article, Grewal follows the story of a Muslim named Yusuf. Throughout the beginning of his story, Yusuf paints himself like a radical Muslim. Grewal pointing out that “even some of his Muslim American friends, colleagues, and fellow student travelers challenged his media messaging, criticizing his representations of Islamic creeds.” Yusuf is a confusing character to me because while he claims what hopefully many Americans believe, that Islam was hijacked by terrorists. I say radical because putting myself in the shoes of another Muslim I can’t see their confusing with Yusuf and how he contradicts the religion. Also, in the wake of the 9/11 events, it was unusual for a Muslim to advise the President of the United States in situations. So my question to Yusuf would be, Where do your religious priorities stand? How do you think people view you from within your religion and on the outside of your religion?
