Imam Muhammad Musri, President and Senior Imam of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, former Co-Chair of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida, and former member of the Florida Governor’s Faith-Based Advisory Council (appointed by Governor Jeb Bush and reappointed by Governor Charlie Crist), will be TCFR’s next featured speaker.
Imam Musri will discuss Islam, Islamic law, ongoing transitions within the Middle East, Quran burnings in Gainesville, Fl and Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan (and other horrific developments including the massacre in Kandahar) both of which evoked highly critical comments by Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Imam Musri also will discuss the role of moderate Muslims since 9/11.

Also, please let us know of individuals and/or business entities you think might be interested in joining.
About the Tallahassee Committee on Foreign Relations (TCFR):
A private nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization (501(c)(3) status pending), TCFR’s mission is to help facilitate a more robust local dialogue on international issues, including trade, economic development, foreign policy, security and humanitarian issues. Membership is open to the general public and includes active civic, business, government, academic and political leaders interested in engaging in discussion with top U.S. and international policy makers, and other influential officials. TCFR is a chapter of the American Committees on Foreign Relations, which was established nearly 70 years ago as a program of the Council on Foreign Relations. While there is no longer a formal relationship between the Council and ACFR, the emphasis remains substantially similar to serve as a vehicle to engage at the local level.
