The History of Jihad: from Mohammad to ISIS. By Robert Spencer
This book should be read by everyone in the West who cares about the future of civilization. And the future of freedom, because the large number of Muslims—many millions--long for a reestablished caliphate that will destroy freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press and all other freedoms they deem “un-Islamic.” They lobby for laws prohibiting blasphemy against Islam (this would include any expression of other religions; they are all blasphemous against Islam according to strict Muslims.) For 1300 years, Islam has crusaded to crush Christianity, Judaism and Western Civilization. Now they have found the tool. Instead of invading armies trying to conquer Europe by the sword, as so many times in the past, now millions of unarmed immigrants come, depending on western hospitality, intent on setting up Shari’a as the law for all humankind. Everyone must convert, accept a humiliating, submissive status and pay the jizra, or die. This book explodes the idea that there was ever an age of Islamic tolerance, despite what Obama claimed. In Spain, or “Andalusia,” as Obama and Muslims call it, the non-Muslims were badly oppressed. Islam has always supported slavery, especially sex slaves. It has always sought the destruction of the Jews. Spenser has the temerity to quote from the Qur’an, the scared Hadiths and the writings of Muslim leaders and contemporary writers through the ages. As always, those who have no answer to the facts will, without reading the book, resort to name calling, starting with “racist” and “Islamophobe.” Of course, many modern politicians from Obama to Pope Francis favor the jihad. This was true in the last century as well: “Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers—already, you see, the world had fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing was Christianity!--then we should have in all probability been converted to Mohammedanism, the cult which glorifies heroism and opens the seventh heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so.” --Adolf Hitler.
