Thomas Jefferson & Question of Islam
Did you know that Thomas Jefferson purchased a Koran in 1765, argued for the rights of a (fictional) Muslim citizen during some of the most key moments in early American history, negotiated respectfully with North African Muslim leaders, but connected Islam with despotism? Could Muslim beliefs and the Koran have influenced this author of our Declaration of Independence? What was going on there?
