"I am Muslim": Laura's Story

The below short video is done by my classmate at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, Manal Ahmad. She is very talented and friendly. Recently, when I was chatting with her at the school, she told me how President Ahmadinejad is popular among Pakistanis. Well, no wonder! Many Muslims, and even non-Muslims- praise Ahmadinejad for his resistance against the United States. However, he is losing his popularity among poor people, who are his main supporters, in Iran because of the economic failure of his government to deal with inflation, unemployment and so on... Manal from Pakistan, Omar from Iraq and I, are the only students from that part of the world. Manal has updated the school about the current events in Pakistan via email during the last two months...
