The dominant culture in the West is culturally liberal or to the left. Dr. Hatem al-Haj explains when composing a team to address Islamic apologetics, it is important to choose those who are within the circle of Islamic orthodoxy but are situated on the left of the spectrum of valid positions in order to best connect with those in the dominant culture and guide them to the message of Islam.
