The bomb threat was bad enough, in the call-the-FBI category of scariness. Switching on the message machine at his Council on Islamic Education, Shabbir Mansuri learned that his office, which shares a building with preschools in a quiet residential section of Fountain Valley, was to be blown up.

In "Reflecting on Freedom" (editorial, Nov. 24) you refer to an interview with Shabbir Mansuri. I serve with Mansuri on the board of the Interfaith Peace Ministry of Orange County. We met with him on the Friday following Sept. 11, and the faith he expressed in the American system of protecting people of all faiths soothed our fears for our Muslim friends. Mansuri has a fascinating story to share about how he started the Council on Islamic Education and his experiences as he meets with people from all over the world.

The bomb threat was bad enough. Switching on the message machine at his Council on Islamic Education, Shabbir Mansuri learned that his office, which shares a building with preschools in a quiet section of Fountain Valley, was to be blown up. But what irritated Mansuri in a more lasting way, in those tense 24 hours after a federal building was bombed in Oklahoma City in 1995, was not the handful of overtly insulting calls from people erroneously blaming Muslims for the tragedy.

A rotating panel of experts from the worlds of philosophy, psychology and religion offer their perspectives on the dilemmas that come with living in Southern California. Today's question: "Only four days remain before the end of the year. What are the most relevant New Year's resolutions we can make for the world in 1996?

Aasiya Mansuri was reading her sixth-grade social studies book one evening when she exploded into laughter and began rolling around on the living room floor. "What's so funny?" asked her father, Shabbir. Aasiya pointed to a passage that implied that all Muslims were Bedouins. It went on to say that Bedouins rub sand all over their faces before kneeling to pray to Allah. That was news to Mansuri, a 47-year-old Indian-American who is Muslim.

I make note of Shabbir Mansuri's comment in "Muslims Brace for Reaction to Bombing" (June 27). I agree that condemnation of all Muslims for this terrorist act is unwarranted. However, to equate terrorist acts with the bombing of Hiroshima that resulted in the surrender of the Japanese is offensive to me. I don't know where you were in 1944, but my brother was fighting in the Pacific, and I was about to go into the service. We all knew that the Japanese would fight to the last man were the home islands invaded.

An estimated 3,500 Muslims gathered Sunday at the Cal State Northridge campus before sunrise to mark Eid al-Fitr, the end of the holy month of Ramadan. In Islam, Ramadan celebrates the first time the Prophet Muhammad received a divine revelation. That was in the year 611, adherents believe, 23 years before Muhammad dictated the Islamic holy book, the Koran. Each day of Ramadan--which began this year on Jan.
