What do Muslims THINK?

From Amir Taheri and The Dallas Morning News

To the extent that Muslim societies have become radicalized in recent years and if still further radicalization is to be expected, then public diplomacy will not be able to accomplish much and a civilizational clash looms. Just a dozen years ago, virtually no one debated this question. Despite the radicalizing influence of the Iranian Revolution and the Wahhabi proselytizing of an inexhaustibly wealthy Saudi Arabia, knowledgeable observers would have dismissed the possibility that radicals would ever make up a majority within the Muslim world. Now there is a plausible argument otherwise.
