To The Editor:

Re: The declaration by Professor Muhammad Sven Kalisch, who teaches Muslim theology at the University of Munster, that the Prophet Mohammed never existed, “at least not in the way that the received version of Islamic tradition claims he did.”

Shavana Abruzzo (A Britisher’s View), one little wonders how pious Muslims will react if ever skepticism of Mohammed’s very existence becomes mainstream?

It’s doubtful they will take it as easily as Jews and Christians have taken assaults on their scriptures as you state in your last column (“Shoe ‘diss’ trips Muslims,” 12-18-08 issue).

Thank you for persevering all these years with so many memorable columns, a few dozen of which I have kept and often forwarded on.

Your perspective on Islam is much needed in these difficult times.

Always looking forward to your columns.
