Idid not expect the call of a muezzin in the capital city of Simferopol. Not that hearing the chosen beings invited to their devotions troubles me. I appreciate this caution against allowing the commerce of daily life to distract one from giving thanks to God. Yet other residents of this Crimean city find the five-times-daily summoning of Muslims to prayer, the adhan, worrisome. It reminds them that ownership of this peninsula is contested.
