Think Tanker Challenges ISIS to Debate About Islam

Barak Barfi, a research fellow at the New America Foundation (NAF), has challenged ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to a debate about the message of Islam.

Mr. Barfi, a friend of the Sotloff family, made the statement this week on behalf of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff and his family.

At NAF, Barfi specializes in Arab and Islamic affairs.  Previously, he was a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution.

Think Tank Watch is quite confident that the Barfi-Baghdadi debate would be much more interesting than any presidential debate...
