in response to reader comment: Hi Susan

Hi Krista,

Thank you very much for your reasoned response. It's so nice to communicate with someone who has an open mind.

I do know about and very much admire Salim Mansur. He is the best thing that's ever happened to Islam. He is completely unafraid to say what he believes and because he's a Muslim, he can see Islam from both sides. He's very insightful and intelligent. It is men like him who give me hope for harmony between Islam and the rest of the world.

I haven't heard of the other two people you mentioned but I will follow your links and learn more about them. I am very interested in the exhibit you helped to organize and will study that as well.

Again, thanks for your response. It's communication like this that helps us understand that many Muslims are trying hard to enable us to see Islam in a more positive light than we perhaps have in recent years.

Submitting....
