Has Sam Harris lost his way a bit? Is he to harsh on Islam?
Sam Harris is pretty much right when he talks about "extremists". Mind you an extremist in this context is someone who follows the instructions in the holy book they claim to follow. So if your a muslim (or christian, jew and others) and you think that you book is true and you need to do what it says then you are dangerous. Many religions are a threat to the wellbeing of billions around the world. I don't think he is talking about the many who call themselves muslims but pick and choose what to believe based on western moral standards.
So in essence the only "good" religious people are the ones who choose morals separate from religion.
