A Gift to Moslems and Christians

An obviously wealthy Saudi businessman has just donated 20 million to Harvard and the same to Georgetown to foster university inspired Moslem-Christian relations. I know something about the current Georgetown efforts under the incredible and inspiring leadership of Dr. John Esposito. These efforts will take time to reach vast masses of Christians or Moslems but they do immediately send signals and they will provide skills and understanding for future leaders. These gifts are truly enlightened and progressive. May the benefactor and his family be blessed.
