Fedwa Wazwaz, editor-in-chief of Engage Minnesota, a website that serves as a forum for Minnesota Muslims, has long been a fan of the Al Jazeera brand and hopes her voice will be reflected in the coverage.

“For too long, good coverage of the Muslim community has withered on the sidelines,” said Wazwaz, who was born in Jerusalem. “Muslims and Arabs have had to worry about the opinion of non-Muslims. We’ve never had this kind of choice before that allows us a two-way stream that can bring us closer to having a genuine conversation. Al Jazeera understands and engages with us as human beings.”
