There's a reason India's Muslims aren't "radicalized" - it's not democracy. Scroll down and read Thiagan's post (Islam and Islamism).

I wonder why, if democracy is the answer, there are, increasingly, numbers of "radicalized" Muslims in England, France, the Netherlands, Germany, the Philippines (Republic), even Lebanon (Parliamentary Democracy), etc.

Amazing how the percentage of Muslims in any given country (democratic or otherwise) so often directly reflects the amount of Islamic anti-government, pro-Shar'ia, Jew-hating, anti-Western violence and enmity.

The higher the Muslim population, the higher the "Islamism". ANYWHERE. Gee, I wonder why?
