Bill Moyers interviewed Imam Zaid Shakir for the first episode of NOW WITH BILL MOYERS, which aired January 18, 2002.
"Human beings are more complex than that, that indeed in any religious faith you have extremists, you have fanatics, you have people that are outright nuts. And Muslims, as Muslims, we haven't cornered the market on these categories of human beings. I think the fact that Islam is largely unknown sort of creates a bit of apprehension." -- Zaid Shakir, 2002

References and Reading:
Zaytuna Institute
Imam Zaid Shakir has been a scholar-in-residence and lecturer at the Zaytuna Institute in California since 2003. The Institute is "a non-profit, educational institute and school founded and run by people committed to reviving time-tested methods of educating and transforming human beings. It is our belief that Islam offers a cohesive understanding of the world and a praxis for it that is able to cut through the illusion of contemporary nihilism and materialism."
