reading some of your columns above, I have had the opportunity to meet Tariq at seminars given by him in Rotterdam Erasmus university where he has been invited as honored guest to speak of Islam.

The impression of Mr. Tariq Ramadan is one of respect and of a person who wants to reach out to the world with a message of peace and lessons of compassion and understanding.

I am not neglecting what is written about the father and the ties he had, nor the suspicion of contacts with terrrorists as mentioned. In Tariqs case I think we must try to be open minded to the positive message end learn from a great mind to live in a world were there could be no fear to live among each other.
