To proclamations that Islam is a religion of peace, Spencer responds (in chapters entitled with questions such as "Is Islam Compatible with Liberal Democracy?" and "Is Islam Tolerant of Non-Muslims?") with evidence, historical and recent, of harsh treatment of women, other religionists, and social minorities in Islamic societies. Besides the facts Spencer presents, his citations of the Qur'an; the hadiths, or sayings and deeds of Muhammad; and Islamic authorities across the liberal-to-fundamentalist spectrum verify attitudes and practices that secular Westerners and present-day Jews and Christians don't think of as peaceable, just, or decent. For instance, slavery and polygamy may be waning in Islamic societies, but they aren't disapproved of or banned because the Qur'an and hadiths endorse them. Islam hasn't adapted to change nearly as much as Judaism and Christianity have, and that accounts for its savage relations with the West. Spencer doesn't see either Islam moderating or the West regarding Islam realistically any time soon. Barring "some wondrous intervention from the Merciful One," he concludes, the immediate future "will be difficult." Alarmingly cogent. Ray Olson

You will not be able to put this book aside easily, and the facts will leave you stunned. It's no wonder this book is now the most popular one on Islam at Amazon.
The Muslims or pro-Muslims that have left comments here may give it poor reviews, but isn't that also a revealing fact in that the book does indeed hit the mark enough to be perceived as a threat?
Do yourself an immense favor and read this book, you will instantly know more about Islam than 90% of Americans presently do.
"Islam is Peace" yeah right, more like, "Know thy Enemy"
