Everything (well, almost everything) you know about Islam and the Crusades is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academics and Islamic apologists who justify their contemporary political agendas with contrived historical "facts." But fear not: Islam expert Robert Spencer (author of the bestseller Islam Unveiled) refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades).
Spencer reveals facts that you won't be taught in school and will never hear on the evening news, supplies a revealing list of "Books You Must Not Read" (as far as the PC left is concerned), and takes you on a fast-paced politically incorrect tour of Islamic teaching and Crusades history that will give you all the information you need to understand the true nature of the global conflict Westerners faces today.
This book obliterates simplistic, politically correct views about Islam. The word-for-word comparisons between the teachings of Muhammad and the teachings of Christianity, Buddhism, and other religions, are stunning.
Take, for example, the famous story of Jesus‘ intervention when a crowd was about to stone an adulterous woman. His words, to let the person „who is without sin cast the first stone“, sent the mob retreating in shame. He then told the woman to, „Go and sin no more.“
As the author quotes, Muhammad was confronted with a similar situation. A pregnant adulterous woman had come to him requesting that he pray with her for forgiveness. He sent her away until the baby was born. When she came back months later, he sent her away until the child was weened. When she came back as directed, he took the child and gave it to one of his men as a gift. Muhammad then ordered the mother buried up to her shoulders and stoned to death.
It really is time for media pundits, college professors, and self-serving politicos to stop making shallow moral equivalence statements about Islam, the Koran, and the Crusades. This book needs to be read and studied by those who now are in a position to give away our birthright.
It took the ancient Greeks, the Judeo-Christian tradition, the Magna Carta, the U.S. Constitution, and hundreds of years of Western Civilization to produce the most beneficent and free society in history.
Here, Muslims and others can practice their beliefs without fear. We must insist that spokesmen and apologists for Islam demand that this „religion of peace“ grant its neighbors the same rights the Western democracies have gladly given to them.
Spencer reveals Islam’s ongoing, unshakable quest for global conquest and why the West today faces the same threat as the Crusaders did—and what we can learn from their experience. Read the book. Its an eye-opener.
