Sam Harris discusses liberals and Muslim fundamentalism

leave a comment »

Sam Harris, author of End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation, discusses the threat from Muslim extremism and how liberals do not recognize that threat. Harris talks about how the West is at war with Muslims such as the ones who think that cartoonists should be beheaded because of cartoons.

Two important points that Harris makes

  • Liberals don’t know what it is like to be a fundamentalist.
  • Larger number of Muslims are radical than most people in the West realize.
