Ten years after the September 11 terrorist attacks, America still grieves the loss of those who died. In the wake of the attacks, numerous misconceptions regarding Islam in relation to terrorism flourished in the media, fueling a vigorous backlash against Muslim and Arab communities. Many Muslims across the world feel misrepresented by extremist groups such as Al-Qaeda. The Pulitzer Center sat down with Natana DeLong-Bas, Professor of Theology at Boston College, to debunk some of these myths. DeLong-Bas talks primarily about Osama Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda, and how their interpretations differ from those of the larger Muslim communities.

Note: DeLong-Bas references Muhammad Ibn Abdl-al-Wahhab, who was an 18th century Islamic scholar. His religious thought is known as "Wahhabism."
