Minarets in Temecula
Islam and the Right to Religious FreedomDVD - 2012
This documentary examines the desire of the Muslim residents in Temecula, a city north of San Diego, who want to build a new place of worship and how it is met with resistance from elements in the local community. The film explores the roots of the opposition from within the community, as well as the diverse nature of support for the project. The incident is used as a foundation for a wider discussion of U.S. and European backlash against Islam. Islamaphobia is examined from the perspectives of parliamentarian Andreas Gross, who discusses the 2009 referendum that made construction of minarets illegal in Switzerland, and Left Turn Magazine editor, Rami El-Amine.
