The Paradox of Liberalism

By Naomi Gryn

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2007

Even liberal, pluralistic sensibilities can collide with the religious elements of Islamic fundamentalism; the author acknowledges a growing sense of crisis about the rapid rise to center stage of Muslim dissenters to our secular ways. She contends that how to tolerate the intolerant is a paradox that has sent our fragile system of values into a tailspin.
