When?

Thursday, Oct 30th 2008 @ 10 PM EST

How does it work?

The debate will take place on MuslimMatters.org. Format will be chat-box.

Can the audience ask questions?

You can ask questions by placing them as comments on this post (preferred) or e-mailing them to live@muslimmatters.org (deadline for questions: Oct. 29th midnight PST). Only topic-related “respectful” questions for Mohamed or Zeba or the moderator, or other comments about debate format, etc. are permitted in this post. Other tangents (such as permissibility of voting, personal attacks, the need for the debate itself, etc.) will be removed without notice. In other words, the comments are specifically to engage in the debate, not to question it. The best questions will be chosen at moderator’s discretion to be asked of the debaters.

That should be really interesting!

    I never hear Bahai’s for O’bama’ I never hear ismali/Agakhani for McCain, I never hear Hindus, Budhist,Jains, Bhudu’s for Obama. Only I hear muslim for Obama. How pathetic? A community only holds religeous identity.
