What can convince an intelligent, rational individual to commit an act of terror in the name of God? Author and former religious zealot Nader Pourhassan knows the answer to this question because he was indoctrinated by radical Muslim ideology at an early age. Born in Iran, Pourhassan was told by his own grandmother to hate Jews and Christians, whom she considered to be “the most impure people” in the world. He says he was brainwashed by the inflammatory rhetoric of Iran’s theocratic dictatorship, and he believes that in 2010 many Iranians continue to have their minds molded in a similar fashion.
Nader Pourhassan will share his story this Saturday at 1pm.
