    So to answer your question radical Islam or any other ideology to the extent that they don't commit acts of violence and work within the legal system are compatible with a free society. I'd go further and suggest that a society that doesn't allow the existence of radical ideologies is not free.
    Just by the fact that you have to exclude violence, you have made my point. Take a look at dearborn.

    I see no evidence of your claim that most domestic terrorists are right wing-unless you are claiming islamic groups are right wing. Is that your claim?

    I make these polls for my own purposes. And in any case, there are very few independents or centrists who have no lean.

    We aren't discussing script but rather the actions of the followers of these religions.

    Most Islamic terrorism is foreign in origin. By domestic terrorism, I mean American citizens committing terrorist acts. The most active domestic terrorist groups are almost all right wing extremists.

    World wide, the death toll continues to climb-whats clear is that the presence of islam often leads to violence, in fact many of the worlds current military conflicts involve islam in a significant way. We live in an international world, where relations between nations matter, and where many value a free society.

    I agree, in fact I have found this BBC video, and think it addresses the issues quite well.
