Planet Islam

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

I am pleased to announce the launch of Planet Islam, an aggregator of posts from blogs from around the Islamsphere, including muslim blogs as well as non-muslim ones that post on issues related to Islam and muslims. Planet Islam is a sub-project of Talk Islam, where those same bloggers meet and share links and discuss the issues (such as, is Ayman Al Zawahiri a racist?). These two sites really let you take the pulse of the muslim blogsphere in real-time and are well-worth bookmarking – go check them out!

    Who represents Islam and what views are really out there.
    It is nice to see an Islamic aggregator, but who decides who is in the fold and who is not?
    I focus on dealing with subjects outside the mainstream. Alternative views of Islam or looking at issues from different angles.
    Hot Conflict issues with a little bit of Pop-Culture.
    Check it out. If you find it interesting ad my links to PlanetIslam.
    Salam
