Arizona Muslims talk about Islam, ISIS, and high-school football.



New Times recently visited the Glendale Civic Center where hundreds of local Muslims had gathered for a prayer service observing Eid al-Adha, "The Festival of the Sacrifice," one of Islam's most important holidays. We asked worshipers what they thought about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and about some of the misconceptions non-Muslims have about Islam. Their answers may surprise you.
