Day 2 - Ibrahim Al-Marashi: “Ice Cream and Fasting in Class”
Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 2:57]
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
Our this second day of Ramadan, a second voice: Ibrahim Al-Marashi. He’s a scholar of modern history with a focus on the Middle East and political communications. His profile was heightened when an article he wrote in 2002 was plagiarized by the British and American governments to justify the invasion of Iraq. An Iraqi-American, he grew up and studied in California and has taught in the U.S., Turkey, and currently in Spain. The curiosity that took him to Madrid flows into the Ramadan story he likes to tell.
