Why Islamic radicals hate America and the West will be discussed at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled "Why Do They Hate Us? Understanding Radical Islam," features filmed interviews with Middle East experts Carl Medearis and  Gregory Johnsen, as well as best-selling author Mark Bowden (Black Hawk Down and The Finish: The Killing of Osama Bin Laden).

"There are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, and far less than 1 percent might be radical enough to become terrorists," says Medearis, an advisor on Arab affairs to members of the U.S. Congress. Medearis, who lived for a dozen years in Beirut, identifies key forces that lead to radicalizing Muslims and suggests how common ground might be found.
