AN EASY way to learn more about Islam is to listen to information on an MP3 player or iPod. And some of the most interesting things to listen to can be found on YouTube.
I just found a way to convert the audio track from a YouTube video to an MP3 or iTunes file, and I've enjoyed listening (on my iPod) to Robert Spencer debating with Islamic apologists, Geert Wilders being interviewed, and other great audio tracks of YouTube videos.
Not only do these videos have good information, but you will hear some good rebuttals you can use in your own conversations. Listen to these audio tracks many times, and these rebuttals will come to mind easily in your conversations. Think of this as a kind of citizen warrior training.
Here's how to convert YouTube videos to audio files: First, go to Vixy.net and download the "Converter Desktop Version" (BETA), which you will see on the lower right of the page. It's a small program and only takes a few minutes to download.
Once you have the Converter installed, open the program, find a YouTube video you want, copy the URL and paste it into the box, select what you want to convert the file to (choose MP3), and click "convert."
When it is done converting the file, open iTunes, click on "File," then click on "Add to Library" and choose the newly converted file. Bingo. It is now a "song" on iTunes, which you can then put on your iPod.
Here are some good YouTube videos to get you started:
