Sure, and various different legal and cultural traditions and different branches and sects.

The West™ doesn't. Oh, they try to be polite about it, talk about "radicals", "rotten apples" yada yada, but basicially it's Islam  that's "them", except for some suitably innocuous examples that can be embraced to show unprejudiced the West™ is.
