Happy New Year! Welcome to episode #17 of WJTA. Thank you for your continued support and interest. We open the new year by answering some of the toughest questions Jason gets asked after his lectures or speaking engagements. 

Questions like: Why do muslims us hate us (Americans)? 

What's with the 72 virgins in heaven?

Why don't muslims assimilate in the U.S.?

Some of the questions we discuss today, may be found in Jason's next book. Hopefully these questions and answers can help lead to a better discussion in America.
