Joe Spoerl on Islam's early Relationship with Judaism and Christianity

Did Muhammad lead an ecumenical religious movement that included Jews and Christians? Or did he oppose Judaism and Christianity and seek to replace them with Islam? Contemporary historians of early Islam are seriously debating this question. Professor Joe Spoerl of Saint Anselm College will guide you through this debate and talk about what it reveals about the state of higher education today and the deleterious effects of political correctness in the fields of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies.
