"Ponderit has an instructive story about a Mormon's encounter with a Muslim cleric in Indonesia, Gus Dur, who would fly to Salt Lake City and receive a blessing from President Hinckley and later become President of Indonesia. If any of you are familiar with details of this story and care to comment or can verify, I'd appreciate hearing from you. I would also like to learn more about the relationship between Muslim leaders and the Church. In today's tense climate of religious misunderstanding and anxiety over Islam in particular, I welcome anything that might lead to mutual respect.
