How many radical muslims are there?

Reader comment on item: [The Hamas Electoral Victory:] Democracy's Bitter Fruit

Submitted by Karla (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 16:35

My concern given the increased number of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and Palestine is just how many radical muslims there are and how many who may not consider themselves to be radical support them. Somehow, I feel led to believe that there are not that many radical muslims and that they are in isolated places. From these elections, it appears to be more widespread than the media depicts.
