In its effort to be piggyback on the intersectional Leftist crowd, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) espouses a lot of ideas that cater that many American Muslims (especially those who are religiously conservative) do not align with.

As counter-terrorism analyst Oz Sultan explains, the American Muslim diaspora comes from 77 diverse Muslim countries. There’s no standard bearer organization that can say they represent all of us, least of all CAIR.

Listen to Oz explain why CAIR cannot possibly represent American Muslims. Also discover why his participation in the Park 51 project laid the foundation to shape a more integrated program that can address some of the critical issues American Muslims face around faith and identity.

Oz Sultan is founder of Our House NYC. He’s also a Big Data and counterterrorism analyst who helps break down complex problems, including coining the term “jillennial” (jihadi millennial). Sultan was part of the original Park 51 project and had the chance to observe the collaboration and communication breakdowns of leadership of prior generations in Muslim communities, and he’s shaping the next generation of dialogue models with Our House NYC. Our House NYC is envisioned to be the TEDx of religion.
