CNN Documenary: Unwelcome: Muslims Next Door

This documentary, presented by Soledad O'Briens takes us to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, a small, close-knit town of 104,000 people where there are 140 churches and 1 mosque. When plans for a new Islamic Centre are announced, a local campaign to block permission ensues leading to Court hearings. The documentary gives airtime to people from both sides, meaning that in this instance, Muslim's get the chance to speak for themselves.

Sister Ponn Sabra, of American Muslim Mom was invited to a private screening of the documentary and her thoughts are here.
