In Freedom From Religion Amos N. Guiora invites readers to consider an unusual technique for curtailing the threat of new terrorist attacks: limiting freedom of religion and freedom of expression for religious extremists.

Through concrete examples, Professor Guiora maintains that there exists a connection between politically-correct tolerance of extremist speech and the rise of terrorist activity, suggesting an even greater need for his unique proposal that governments should introduce new limits on religious practice within their borders.

To demonstrate the wisdom of this course, Professor Guiora presents the disparate policies and security circumstances of five countries: the U.S., the UK, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Israel. In setting forth his analysis, he addresses Islamic, Christian, and Jewish extremism. This candid account of such a controversial subject matter convincingly clarifies the relationship between freedom of speech and terrorism.
