    Does the existence of free speech and a secular Western society make inevitable a conflict with extreme Islam? If such a conflict is inevitable, what is the most reasonable approach to it?

    The answer to your first question would have to be yes.

    The answer to the second is an all-out and lasting campaign to destroy jihadi terrorists.

    Yes, the conflict is inevitable. As the conflict is inevitable with any fundementalist religion. We see this same conflict within our own society. The key is to prevent it from becoming full scale war.

    As education begins to permeate their societies, primarily through the very instrument we are communicating on, it will be harder for their young to reconcile the reality of the world with the myth their elders are asking them to live. And their religions are going to have to change, or lose the adherance of coming generations.

    The most reasonable approach is to let them stew in their own juices, and keep an information stream from the whole of the rest of the world going into the hell holes they create. Eventually their own people will change their system. This is what happened in the USSR and China.

    A government cannot include religious doctrine into it's legislation and have religious freedom. It's impossible.

    Yes...Islam is a cancer on the world.

    It should be dealt with like any other aggressive cancer: high doses of RADIATION therapy.
