Islamic view on cloning

I am researching Islamic views on human cloning and genetic engineering issues
and found this statement, much more progressive imo than most of what we can
read in the western press after the humen embryo cloning announcement.

<<<Nevertheless, since we do not will unless God wills, can this breakthrough
in cloning be regarded as part of the divine willing to afford human kind yet
another opportunity for moral training and maturity? The Qur'an seems to be
suggesting that embryo splitting is just that opportunity for our over all
maturity as members of the global community under God.>>>
