Questions for "Moderate" Muslims

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

Submitted by Orley Swartzentruber (United States), Nov 26, 2003 at 09:40

This questionnaire is a model. We hope that the State Department and others (the White House?) take note and learn to ask the questions.

Today, Turkey proclaims that "terrorism has no religion" (according to the New York Times, Nov. 26, 2003), but have we uncovered any terrorist cells other than militant islamist?

A moderate Muslim is, in essence, one who take the Quran with a grain of salt.
