Reader Chris Bushnell writes with a few questions “Mike Wallace forgot to ask” (which I have slightly edited):
Do you believe in the return of the Hidden Imam, and what does his return mean for the world?
Would Osama Bin Laden be a welcome guest in your country?
Should Muslims living in Western nations be allowed to apply sharia law within their communities, or must they follow the laws of their country?
Do you believe that western countries in regions once occupied by Muslims, Spain for example, should be returned to “the House of Islam”?
You say you love all people. What would your reaction be if one of your daughters married a Jew?
What would be the proper punishment for anyone who drew a cartoon of the prophet Mohammed?
Are Sunni Muslims pure Muslims or do they practise a bastardized version of Islam?
Will the United States of America exist in 10 years time?
Here is the one question I wish Wallace would have seen fit to ask Ahmadinejad, perhaps immediately after Wallace’s attestation to the great honor of interviewing him:
Do you think that the United States has a legitimate bone to pick with you in connection with your leadership of the student group that took 66 Americans hostage in the American embassy in Tehran in 1979?
