What Reza Aslan Said About Islamophobes Before His Viral Fox News Interview




Say what you will about Fox News' cringeworthy interview (see video embedded below) with noted religious scholar Reza Aslan, it's turned into great publicity for Aslan's new book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.

We wonder what Fox News anchor Lauren Green — who asked Aslan repeatedly what business he, a Muslim man, had writing a book about Jesus Christ — would think about the above video from Aslan's 2010 appearance at Asia Society New York. In it, the Iranian-American boldly takes on Islamophobes and offers a witty response to the "unprecedented" wave of anti-Muslim prejudice he saw sweeping the U.S. in 2010.
