He has long been fascinated by Islam and the culture of the Middle East.

Now it has emerged that the Prince of Wales is having lessons in Arabic.

The Prince told guests at a reception in Qatar today that the language 'goes in one ear and out the other'.

But an aide revealed that he is so keen to learn it that he has been having private tuition for more than six months.

Being able to read Arabic would enable the Prince, who is passionate about encouraging dialogue between different religions, to read the Koran in its original form.

i almost read through a translated version of the quran (i stopped at sura 45:11 - if that's the right notation). it's pretty interesting. if i believed in god i'd probably be a muslim. :/
from an atheist standpoint it's pretty interesting because it reflects early christian beliefs and all sorts of superstition from those times. while reading it i realized that humanity probably didn't change since then at all. lol it's also pretty interesting to know where our belief in the devil probably had it's origin:

I had a Swedish version of the book as well. I'm not an atheist, but I don't do religion either.

The prince is probably thinking of applying for a foreign job since it doesn't look like he will ever get hired locally.

That wouldn't surprise me a bit. Probably the UN.
