Gruber, Christiane and Muhammed S. Mehtar. "Picturing Muhammad." Radio West (January 19, 2015) ["... we're asking what Islam really says about images of the Prophet Muhammad. Of course, this is more than a theological exercise given the terrorist attack earlier ... on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. Art historian Christiane Gruber says an outright ban is really a modern notion and joins us to discuss how Islamic law has been interpreted throughout time and by various communities. We'll then talk with Salt Lake Imam Muhammed S. Mehtar to understand what the ban means to the faithful."]

Democracy Now (November 2, 2015) ["The White House has announced a team of special operations forces numbering less than 50 will be sent to Syria. This marks the first sustained U.S. troop presence in Syria since President Obama launched a bombing campaign against the self-proclaimed Islamic State in September 2014. It’s also a reversal of Obama’s repeated promise of no U.S. boots on the ground in Syria, a pledge he also violated in Iraq. One day after the announcement, the United Nations and International Committee of the Red Cross made what they called an "unprecedented joint warning" for states to end wars, respect international law and aid the 60 million refugees made homeless from recent conflicts. We are joined by Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies, author of several books, including "Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror.""]
