Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl begins by reminding us what it means to be called by God to be a witness--to be one who tells the truth--on behalf of God, and the heavy burden of the duty of testifying to the truth, both in terms of being a bearer of good news and also of bringing warning. He speaks of the latest news of Jared Kushner's Deal of the Century to bribe Palestinians with money that comes from Saudi, and the direct analogies to colonialism and the White Man's Burden. He calls upon Muslims in free Western countries to live up to their heavy responsibility to testify. Finally, he closes the chapter on the ICSC banning incident, addressing feedback from last week's khutbah and elaborates on the ICSC incident as a matter of principle, and as a failed hope.
