The Archbishop of Sydney. . .

. . .said reading the Koran, the sacred text of Islam, was vital “because the challenge of Islam will be with us for the remainder of our lives - at least”.

That can be found here in The Daily Eudemon. It reminded me of this depressing little motto which I read a few weeks ago:

"An American optimist here in the first part of the 21st century is someone who is studying Spanish. A pessimist is one who is studying the Koran."

I forgot where I found that. If it's yours, let me know and I will give a proper attribution.
