Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: Our dear KH Ahmed and the Arabic language

Submitted by K.H. Ahmed (United States), May 29, 2008 at 07:57

I picked up your comment this early AM and will be more than happy to exchange on this matter. A little short of time at the moment but I do not like to ignore something when someone gives a well written comment as you have here -

Let me say I have read the Quran in arabic - can read Arabic - but bow to I will assume your innate knowledge of grammatical structure - I for one would have to look up some of the things you reference and am not ashamed to admit it -

Quickly though as I have to leave shortly - I do know Lebanese Christians in the New England area with the name Hussein - my assumption would be some Muslim lineage. As to the rest one, I'll get back as soon as possible and two I'm not sure the grammatical discussion adds any light to the discussion with Dr. Pipes.

Regardless very much enjoyed your writing and will get back. Lot's to disagree about - always fun.
