Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?

Another clear and compelling explanation of how the culture clash between democratic pluralism and extreme Islam come together…
It should be obvious, yet we are always a bit surprised by the fact that extremists get their way by simply murdering everyone who doesn’t agree with them. That is a problem. Because those who have grown up in with Western cultural values of democracy and pluralism, are not comfortable or interested in killing or being killed to stand up for their beliefs. After all, that’s why they live in Western, pluralistic societies.
But radical Islam is changing all that. Democratic countries will have to begin deciding if they want to risk being dominated and ultimately ruled by extreme Islam, or are they willing to risk comfort and personal security in order to make sure that radicalism, specifically Muslim radicalism does not overthrow moderate Western civilization.
