Amanpour to Host Special Town Hall; Locale Undisclosed

A special ABC “This Week” town hall meeting is taking place in New York City, where Christiane Amanpour will moderate a live debate “Holy War: Should Americans Fear Islam?”  ABC is not revealing the exact location of the town hall due to security reasons. Noteably, 2000 presidential hopeful Gary Bauer will be there. Who can forget him falling off a podium during a Bisquick pancake flipping contest? Refresh your memory here.

The guests: Evangelist Franklin Graham, Daisy Khan — Executive Director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and one of the leading organizers behind the planned mosque and Islamic community center in New York City, Azar Nafisi, Author of “Reading Lolita in Tehran,” Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, Peter Gadiel of the 9/11 Families for a Secure America Foundation, and Donna Marsh O’Connor of the September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

The town hall meeting airs Sunday, October 3 on “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.”
