<< I really can understand Roberta's concern about presenting Islamic art
 this traumatic time -- we never know how people will react. I think,
 however, that it would be essential to keep this project in the curriculum
 illustrate the peaceful and humble nature of the true Islamic religion. The
 art is so connected to the concept of harmony and unity that it could be a
 very appropriate topic to teach. It also would help break down cultural
 stereotypes, too. Just a thought!

Thanks Amy - hopefully I will feel comfortable teaching it later on. I can
quote the President on the Muslims being a loving peaceful people - as my back
up. Roberta
