A tranquil #U.S. #Muslim hamlet in the #Catskills – until the attack #plot http://reut.rs/1FpJb3G #islamberg #sufi #islam #newyork
Just beyond the gated entrance to the tiny Catskills community of Holy Islamberg, population 200, cows graze and ducks glide on a tranquil pond. Modest houses of wood and cinder block sit along the hamlet's single thoroughfare, a rutted dirt road without traffic signs.

In his battle against militant Islam, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is relying not just on bomber planes and soldiers but on white-turbaned clerics from Al-Azhar, Egypt's 1,000-year-old center for Islamic learning. He wants clerics to counter radicalism in the classroom.

Religion Editor, Reuters
Introduction
My job as Religion Editor is to coordinate religion news coverage with our bureaus around the world. Based in Paris, I also run our FaithWorld blog and report mostly about Christianity and Islam in Europe and related moral issues such as bioethics. Since joining Reuters in 1977 in London, I've been a correspondent, bureau chief and editor in Vienna, Geneva, Islamabad, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Bonn and Paris. My book Unchained Eagle: Germany after the Wall was published in 2000. With religion becoming an increasingly important factor in the news, I launched the Religion Editor job in 2003.
