another 'Useful Question'?

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

Submitted by ron thompson (United States), Nov 27, 2003 at 17:15

Every UQ seems good - I would just suggest another:

Do you think every Arab or majority Moslem State who hasn't done so should
immediately recognize the State of Israel, as both a long overdue recognition of
international legal and political reality, and as a way to send a powerful message
against the continued legitmacy among Moslem populations of suicide bombings
against Israeli civilians?
I don't think anyone who can't answer this question in the affirmative
is a "moderate".
Indeed, I don't think anyone who is not positively calling for this step by any State who doesn't now recognize Israel is a very sensible supporter of the so-called preace process.
