At this point in my life, I’ve spent more than 1 year traveling across Muslim-majority countries. And many of them (like Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Syria, Indonesia) are my favorite nations in the world!
Growing up as a Jew in the USA, I was told by many that Muslims are bad people… but that can’t be farther away from the truth! There is a huge misconception about Muslims. They are some of the most respectful, hospitable, and friendly souls on the planet, and I learned this from experience.
As I reflect here in Nouakchott, Mauritania on the last day of 8 months on the road, I wanted to share some of my honest thoughts about Islam.
I hope some of you guys can relate, and if you can, please let me know in the comments below
