    I think, with my oft-repeated aversion to religious fundamentalism. See below.

      Your aversion to fundamentalism is not remotely the question, nor hardly relevant to it.  And one needn't care a whit for Friedman to accept his simple statements regarding Islam's problem, which has become a problem for so many.  

      While it is absurd to suggest that all extremists are Moslem, it seems perfectly clear, the most pervasive, violent and dangerous religious extremists in the world today are by and large Moslem, such that the secular governments of majority Moslem states are constantly forced to confront these forces themselves.  

      The other fundamentalists groups you mention below certainly exist, but their existence does not alter the point being made by either Friedman or USArmyParatrooper.
