I am a member of the armed forces in Korea, and I regularly listen to your show through podcast format; it helps pass the long watches of the night. I recently became interested in Islam in the past few months from listening to the varied shows you've been doing. I particularly enjoyed the current show, "A New Voice for Islam", as well as the one a while back featuring Mr. Johnston, about Islam and diplomacy. There is, in my experience, a tendency to demonize Islam from most of the individuals in the armed forces, but I have tried to resist this. I think it's far too easy to regard all Muslims as "the enemy", rather than to take the time to understand the culture and faith as a whole. I want to thank you for your show, the episodes about Islam particularly, as they've opened up a new understanding of religion within my mind.
