Obviously any religion, particularly the monotheistic ones, can easily detriorate into fanaticism pure, and those Rabbis must be dealt with. However, empirically and historically - now - it seems to be the turn of Islam to represent the major problem: I don't see evangelical preachers challenging the democratic system in the US, or Hebron rabbi's throwing bombs in India, Chechnia, England, Spain, Indonesia, or the US. Ignoring the fact that fundamentalist Islam has in the last 3 decades unfortunately become the dominating mainstream direction of Islam is like claiming that the Catholic Clergy in the late middle ages consisted mostly of moderates and that the excesses of the Spanish Inquisition were a marginal phenomenon of interfaith dialogue gone wrong. Burg's crowd-pleasing (his crowd)and book-promoting supperficial dichotomy (interfaith moderates agains faith-transcending zealots)is much less differentiated than Huntington's and, alas, even Bush's.
