Video - Egyptian-German Scholar Dr. Hamed Abdel-Samad Analyzes "the Birth Defect of Islam" (MEMRI).
Egyptian-German researcher Dr. Hamed Abdel-Samad published a series of lectures and interviews on his YouTube account under the title “The Box of Islam,” in which he encouraged thinking “out of the box” when analyzing the Islamic religion. In the first two episodes of the series, Dr. Abdel-Samad addressed the early beginnings of Islam, contending that contrary to what is claimed by many liberal researchers of Islam, one must not draw a distinction between Islamic heritage, on the one hand, and the Prophet Muhammad and the Quran. These lectures were posted on the Internet on June 9 and 10, 2015.
