      Hello Marc (new to me), and all on this thread,

      You ask questions about Ibrahim Abouleish and what he might or might
      not say (or have said) in a talk at the Goetheanum about Islam and
      Christianity, Mohammed and Christ. I have no direct answer to your
      question, and neither can I comment directly on the controversial
      Pietro Archiati's role in reporting this.--I can only say that it is
      best to go to the source. Ibrahim Abouleish is, as far as I know (and
      I know from a close friend, which is still second-hand knowing)
      highly regarded in places in Egypt. His work at Sekem has been highly
      praised and I have seen some of the results, when I lived in Africa
      (biodynamic work, etc. in a large community). But check out Sekem
      (Egypt's) website, and research more for yourself on Abouleish. I
      know that he and another anthroposophic friend of mine are
      translating the Koran...and I also read the statement from Sekem,
      after 9/11, a statement of peace and good wishes to the U.S.

      More at present I cannot say, but I do suggest you go to the source--
      the Vorstand and Abouleish, not Archiat, even though he may be
      correct.

      Blessings,
      elaine
