Why I agree with Prof. Robinson

Reader comment on item: [Paul H. Robinson:] U Penn Prof for Shari'a

Submitted by Walter H. King (United States), Jul 27, 2004 at 18:06

I think what we need more than anything else with respect to the battle with the Islamic Fundamentalists is to enhance, further and encourage all liberal interpretations of the Koran and Sharia law. Dr. Robinson's project is in that direction and therefore very meritorious.

One must hope for a "Martin Luther" figure to do for Moslems what Luther did for Christians. Meanwhile Dr. Robinson's efforts merit support and encouragement.
