“It takes an idea to defeat an idea.
Extremist ideology must be competed against!"
Hello! As you may have guessed, my name is Mohamed. Mohamed is the most common name in the world. I set up AverageMohamed.com to talk plainly to humanity – to all of you. Issues of race, religion, and “fitting in” affect all of us, and often lead our children to extremism. The solution to so many of these issues is simple: dialogue. I have waited for a constructive, logical dialogue program about these issues that can reach average people. While waiting, and waiting, and waiting, it dawned on me that an average guy can spark these dialogues. If it is an average guy who turns average people into extremists, it will take all of us average people to tell them otherwise.
My mission is to create a counter ideology with your help and input. I want to give average parents, kids and clergy talking points to counter falsehood propagated by extremists. I live happily in America, the greatest place a person can call home, amongst a people who cherish peace and offer people like me an unparalleled opportunity to succeed. I hope to share my love of country, peace, and democracy with children across the world. I need your help to do so.
Mohamed Amin Ahmed
