Thanks for the history

Thanks for the history

I was very surprised to read the report (Post, December 16, 2005, The Temple of the

Thousand Foreskins) of the Khmer king who fell in love with the Cham daughter who

lived along the river - and afterward converted himself to be a Muslim king and forced

his courtiers to be Muslim as well. I have read some Cambodian history, but never

such a story as this. Anyway, thank you Dr Trudy Jacobsen and the Phnom Penh Post

for bringing this story to let our Khmer sons know about history. I guarantee that

only a small number of Cambodian people know such Khmer history
