thanks for the clarification. with that in mind, may I suggest that other than those self identifying as muslim for the purpose you communicated, the rest enter "fundamentalist atheist" for religion;)
btw, kudos to you and everyone working on this great initiative.
the egyptians did request it and i think it's wise to keep it. they want to make sure there are some muslims in the delegation, and i think it's responsible of us to recognize the importance of religion in their lives, even if it's less relevant in ours or handled differently in american culture.
and also, we've already released this to the general public, so we can't strike it now.

i'm not liking the "religion" question in the questionnaire. if the egyptians requested, we should push back on it. if we proposed it, it's not relevant.

Subject: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] URGENT: Egyptian Delegation Info Packet
To all participatory Working Groups and Caucuses:
The Egyptians are honored that the Occupy Wall Street GA approved our proposal for OWS to send a delegation to Egypt to observe the upcoming elections the first elections since the revolution. There is work to do: Working Groups need to decide who they want to nominate to take this unprecedented trip to Egypt. Please be mindful of the purposes we are trying to fulfill in your selections process - this selection is being deadlined for Sunday 9pm.
As it stands now the amount for each WG for nominations is 2 but that module could shift, so we are asking WG's to nominate 2 and then have 1 alternative. A questionnaire is attached to this email please return this questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday 10am Movement Building will have a final information session, everyone is welcome. Location 60 Wall St. Please reference the attached documents to answer your questions and concerns.
Thanks to all,
