The April 2008 issue of Prospect has an intriguing story of Hugh Miles’ (best personal website I’ve ever seen) voluntary conversion to Islam. "I moved to Cairo and fell in love with a beautiful Egyptian doctor," he writes. "We decided to marry, but first I had to convert to Islam. It didn’t take long." I couldn’t figure whether he was being cynical – or rather, just how cynical he was being. You decide.
