Focus Group Social/Religious Issues

    Dear Specialists:

    Thank you for accepting the contract to advise myself, my chief aides, and the leaders of the various branches of the government in this matter.  We wish your team to provide detailed information and analysis about certain social and religious issues of Islam preeminent in the world today.  In particular, we wish you to focus on the following areas: Arabs in Israel, Muslims in the West, Women in Islam, and Islamic Fundamentalism.  These subjects weigh heavily not only on our foreign affairs but on life inside the United States proper.  The various interpretations of Islam at home and abroad are of major concerns for us, and we look to your expertise in trying to understand the complexity of the issues involved.

    In deciding what policies our government should pursue, it is absolutely vital that we have the best information and advisement possible.  I will rely heavily on you and your group's presentation to provide me with the information and advice necessary to do my job and to serve our national interests.  I  need not remind you of the vital importance of what we are studying to both our own national security, as well as that of the world generally.

    Good luck!  We await eagerly the presentation of your focus group. 

    Very Truly Yours, 

    President of the United States

P.S.  Be sure to read this last reminder as you sit down in your groups to start this project!
