Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for the link and the diary which I missed the first time around.

Not only was it very enlightening, it also answered a question of mine. Quite some time ago I picked up a translation (and a good one, with lots of explanatory footnotes) of the Koran, and read quite a bit (a quarter perhaps). Anyway in some parapragh were it is stated that you should respect other people of the book, Jews, Christians and Sabeans were listed as those people. Finally I have the answer to that nagging question "who were the Sabeans?".

And so I find that they question was posed in the wrong tense, but tragically looks like it will be in the right tense soon.
