After 9/11, the West became fearful of Muslims and acts of terror were prominent in the news cycles. Politicians capitalized, and have effectively employed Islamophobia as a political tool. In Why Do They Hate Us?, author Steve Slocum takes the spotlight off the extremists and instead exposes the heart of the everyday Muslim.

MAKING PEACE WITH THE MUSLIM WORLD
With Americans still in shock after watching packed airliners fly into the World Trade Center towers, George W. Bush asked America,
“Why do they hate us?”
Steve Slocum, Peace Activist, Author
Steve Slocum took the adventure of a lifetime when he traveled with his family of five to Kazakhstan to become missionaries. During their five years there, they were often on the receiving end of the iconic Muslim hospitality. It left a lasting impression.
Back in the states, Slocum resumed his engineering career but grew uneasy with the growing levels of animosity towards Muslims. In 2018 he founded a nonprofit called Salaam whose mission is creating mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims. Slocum is a frequent media guest and keynote speaker.
