Reasonable Questions from Dr. Pipes EXCEPT...

Reader comment on item: [Finding Moderate Muslims:] Do you believe in modernity?

Submitted by Jamal (United States), Sep 10, 2007 at 08:55

Even the most reasonable, moderate Muslim will have a hard time condemning Palestinian or Kashmiri "terrorism" WITHOUT condemning Israeli or Indian "occupation." It is not right for you to frame the debate with the presumption that Israel and India are justified in their actions... If you truly believe that Israel and India are right, the goal should be to educate Muslims on the history of those conflicts...

But on the other questions, I think they're quite fairly worded.
