The Legacy of Abraham

"Because Muslims, Christians and Jews all claim Abraham as their father, are Americans supposed to forget about Sept. 11?" Bob Franz Placentia, Calif.

As an American Muslim, I greatly appreciated your article on Abraham [RELIGION, Sept. 30]. It was thought provoking and opened my eyes to connections among the three great faiths. It was nice to read something that didn't vilify Islam and the Muslim tradition. Articles like this make me feel there are reasonable, objective people out there who are willing to accept their differences in order to understand the commonalities.
