I need your help.

I'm doing research on terrorism, and I've put together a pre-survey questionnaire that I'm circulating in order to get feedback on what a non-biased (non-western, non-white) survey might look like. I need to hear from other voices. I’m particularly interested in incorporating the views of women, non-whites, and people living outside of America and Western Europe.
The final survey will go out later this year.

The pre-survey questionnaire can be accessed at

Would you post it, and possibly circulate it?
I'd appreciate it.

Thank you!
Take care,

John Maszka
