    DESCRIPTION

    The contemporary Muslim world is perceived as a seething cauldron of conflict. "Islam" is synonymous with "oppression" and "Muslim" with "terrorist." Muslims seem to have become the dreaded "other" people who cannot be understood. But one influential Muslim leader shatters these stereotypes. M. Fethullah Gulen is invited to the Vatican for a private meeting with the Pope, meets leading Israeli and Turkish Rabbis, announces his friendship with the Greek Orthodox Patriarch, and strives for dialogue. His dream is now a vision that attracts people who choose altruism over materialist individualism. Being the spiritual leader of milions of Muslims, he clearly is a voice that must be heard.
