Reader comment on item: Smoking Out Islamists via Extreme Vetting

Submitted by Barbara Skiba (Germany), Jan 28, 2017 at 19:57

Those questions sounds extremely use- and helpful. Though, I think they don't fetch far enough. E.g.: the question on marriage and divorce:
24. Is polygyny acceptable?

25. Should a husband have to get a first wife's approval to marry a second wife? A third? A fourth?

26. Should a wife have equal rights with her husband to initiate a divorce?

When aiming at equal rights, why not ask: "Should a woman have the equal right to get married to more than one husband?"

Some of these questions might be asked more openly, in order to force a detailed explanation, not simply a "yes" or "no". Finally, going that far, an observed behavorial group-situation as a tool might be helpful. There, no one will be able to truly fake his/ her ideology, especially when it comes to relationship between men and women.
