This chapter examines contemporary social tensions, based on interviews with a broad range of both subject matter and country-specific experts conducted in Holland, Norway, the UK, and Israel. It considers the very nature of society in order to provide a snapshot of the tensions between society and extremist groups and individuals. Interview responses and dialogue varied depending on the tensions within each country, its history, and the particular perspective of the interlocutor. There was disagreement over whether extremism posed a danger; among those who viewed extremism as posing a danger, opinions varied widely on how and when to minimize its impact.

Keywords:   social tension, contemporary society, Holland, Norway, UK, Israel, extremism, society
