Where did Islam come from, and how did it get so supremacist, intolerant, and violent? Find out by studying Islam's history free with the Historyscoper and see how deep the rabbit hole goes at http://go.to/islamhistory

What truth are we not admitting? How are we averting our eyes? If anything, the Obama administration has dramatically stepped up the campaign against what you are calling "radical Islam" by increased attacks in Pakistan, by major increases in American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, and by increased security in the US. What they are not doing is treating these threats as some kind of single-minded monolith. And that seems correct, since the Taliban is not the same as Al Qaeda, which is not the same as the Iranian government, which is not the same as Saudi extremists or Pakistani militants, etc., etc. We don't gain anything by over-simplifying problems.

Can you please shed some light on the meaning of Radical Islam? Thanks much.
