"Children and Adults Alike Will Marvel at a 3D Exploration of Mosque Architecture From the Maldives to China"

The Children's Museum of Manhattan presents "From America to Zanzibar," an entirely non-threatening exhibit devoted to the multiplicity of Muslim "culture."

The sights, the sounds, the hands-on nature of the displays--as well as the decision to ignore religious doctrine (the thing that underpins and animates these cultures)--makes this an appealing mélange that is bound to appeal to parents and moppets alike.

Thus, let's marvel at mosque architecture but avoid any mention of what's being preached in many of those mosques. (Or, to put it another way, better ix-nay the ihad-jay, 'kay?)

We wouldn't want to scare the kiddies, now, would we?
