Thank you Robert Spencer for putting this book together. An easy read, not at all difficult to follow but obviously well researched. Yes, there is a bias but it is well deserved and expected. Any reader who has an uncomfortable feeling about Islam but can't quite explain why, will find in this book the knowledge he or she needs to defend their feeling. It will actually bring gratitude for our Jewish friends as well as bring you closer to all non-Muslim peoples everywhere.
Congratulations Robert Spencer. In answer to the quote from [...] saying about Mr. Spencer "May Allah rip out his spine from his back and split his brains in two." I say, may God protect you from a hatred so fierce that a Muslim would actually put it in those kinds of words. A religion of "Peace and Tolerance?"
The second half of the book, dealing with the crusades themselves was new information to me and made for very interesting reading. Of course His work will always be considered controversial or worse by some, but I am not one of that crowd. I really appreciate anyone who will stand up to the very destructive , politically correct thinking that is so pervasive in our day.
Highly recommended reading for anyone interested in Islam, or simply the history of the crusades.
I realize it is not possible to buy all the good books available, but I'm sure this edition would be available at your local library.
The stupendous ignorance of those reared on mea cupla without thought is brilliantly illustrated and concise: how, precisely, can it be believed that the Crusades were an offensive action, following on the heels of four hundred years of islamic aggression? Spencer illustrates handily why this view - entrenched in our educational system for decades, the course materials lacking only a thorny stick to flagellate the students with - is a malign and backwards nonsense. The parallels evidenced thereby to today are, thus, striking. Nor does he stop there. The mindset and political religionism - some in a more enlightened age might call it "fascism" - inherent to Middle East to this day repeat the original pattern over and over and over again.
One ignores the book only at the peril of greater society and, ironically, the very (Western) civilization that permits the development of the unorthodox orthodoxy that refuses to permit debate in any direction deviating from the new societal norms: the West is always at fault, whether acting or sitting still, and non-Westerners always have the best interests of mankind at heart, no matter what they do, say or openly admit to. It is difficult to imagine that such a work could be ignored even by the most (to borrow a phrase) 'obstinate'; but then again, some have more skill at this than others.
A staggeringly good read.
"Koran 2:106 Nothing of our revelation (even a single verse) do we abrogate or cause be forgotten, but we bring (in place) one better or the like thereof. Knowest thou not that Allah is Able to do all things?"
The above quote says it all. If we read the koran chronologically (from muhamMAD's time in Mecca to his "turn" in Medina), all peaceful messages about those that don't believe in islam have been replaced with messages of hate and terror.
Anyone who fails to acknowledge this is either a liar, or someone who refuses to see the truth.
The bottom line is that those that call themselves a muslim or who follow muhamMAD's way, follows a compass of immorality and evil.
The koran damns itself, in over 500 ways... Mr. Spencer, thank you for opening my eyes. Thank you for getting me to investigate islam on my own terms, and prove myself wrong (I used to be a blind, liberal supporter).

I deplore political correctness, and am not particularly enamoured of Islam - or most religions for that matter - so I was curious to hear what Spencer had to say. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Cornelius

This is a great piece of fiction writing. It should be taught in literature classes as an example of how you twist facts and history to rationalize bigotary, hate and lies. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Daud Nasir
