Fundamental Islam is a belief based on a fundamentalist interpretation of the Koran and Hadith. Essentially it's a belief based on a strict interpretation of the text without a filter. So if the text says to kill someone for leaving the faith, they believe this must be done, when the text says cut off the hand of a thief, they believe this must be done, etc...

The pew research center has conducted studies on this.

You can see that fundamentalist interpretation are fairly common.

I believe true radicalization is not nearly as common. However, I do believe that fundamentalist Islam provides a breeding ground for radicalization. It's not hard to imagine going from a fundamentalist interpretation of what should be done about infidels to a radicalization of committing acts against those infidels.

I'd like to get a more clearer perspective in this from you. Could you clarify a bit more on what you mean by fundamental Islam? how do you define it?

and following in from that, what does "fundamentalist interpretations" mean to you? and how widespread do you feel "radical Islam" actually is? and what is your perspective based on?

just want to know your perspective on these

anything radical is usually bad. I can't think of one that's good but I'm sure there is.

I'd say fundamental Islam is an issue. It's not just radical Islam. Even in "moderate" Islamic countries, human rights violations occur due to fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran and Haddith. If it weren't for fundamentalist Islamic clerics, it would be hard to imagine that radical Islam would be able to gain the type of foothold in so many countries. Islam is in desperate need of a reformation.
