On the premise that nothing makes a better gift than a good book, a Muslim civil liberties group is launching a campaign to hand out 100,000 free copies of an expensive Arabic-English copy of the Qur'an to elected officials and influential policy makers.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is planning to announce their campaign at a press conference Tuesday. The group's executive director said the project was inspired after hearing people in his office heard Obama's speech to the Muslim world last month, in which Obama talked about seeking "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world."

What has been your main source of knowledge about Islam?


J. A. State College, PA -

This is to thank you for the Holy Quran you recently sent to me. On my word, I will afford no less than the care suggested on the enclosed letter. As a Friend in a Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, my religious and spiritual quest is free and open; thus, there is inherent respect for, and openness to, Islam and its teachings. Indeed, our fellowship has only this month begun a study group on the Quran with the gracious help of the local Islamic community. I feel that such actions are the least I can do to further inter-faith understanding in a deeplydivided nation.
