From the Back Cover
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: 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 America faces today.

~"I like to be open-minded. That's why I can't remember anything!"
This book is worth more than the price advertised. I would pay double for the information therein.
Readers of Spencer's insightful book would also do well to read "Jenna's Flaw," a novel about the death of God, the crumbling of Western civilization, and what the West must do to stop it.
Be afraid, be very afraid of the idiots in our government who spew forth their ignorance about Islam, enter into agreements that will only harm us, who give our hard-earned wealth to "friendly" governments that support jihadists, and who denigrate Western culture--a culture that supports thought and freedom of speech, not supported by Islam. These idiots are giving away your freedom and Islam is taking it. But J. Q. Adams says it best in the book:
“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an imposter, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against the rest of mankind. THE ESSENSE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXHALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.” John Quincy Adams on Islam [emphasis in original]
ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE: "Breaking treaties reinforces the principle that nothing is good except what is advantageous to Islam and nothing evil but what hinders it. Islamic jurists have enunciated the principle that generally truces were to be concluded for no more than ten years and only entered into for the purpose of allowing weakened Muslim forces to gain strength. The Qur’an commands Muslims to make war on Jews and Christians, verse of tolerances and peace in the Qur’an have been canceled according to Islamic theology. The suras of the Qur’an are not arranged chronologically, but according to length. Islamic theology divides the Qur’an into “Meccan” and “Medinan” suras. The Meccan comes from the first segment of Muhammad’s career as a prophet, but after he fled to Medina, his positions hardened when his call to Islam was ignored. Islamic doctrine of abrogation is the idea that Allah can change or cancel what he tells Muslims, so the violent verses abrogate the peaceful ones, and the ninth sura, the Verse of the Sword, is the last section of the Qur’an to be revealed. Some Islamic scholars assert the Verse of the Sword abrogate 124 verse of the Qur’an."
ON INFIDELS: "The distaste that Muslims have for unbelievers, who are called the “vilest of creatures” in the Qur’an (98:6), is not a thing of the past. The Iraqi Shi’ite leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Husayni Sistani, who has been hailed by many in the West as a reformer, a moderate, and a hope for democracy in Iraq and the Middle East at large, makes it quite clear in his religious rulings that the Islamic contempt for unbelievers is still very much in effect……Double standard alert: Sistani is respected throughout the Western world. But imagine the international outcry if, say, Jerry Fallwell said that non-Christians were on the level of pigs, feces, and dog sweat..."
ISIS IS FOLLOWING THE QUR'AN: Muhammad delineates three choices that Muslims are to offer to non-Muslims: Accept Islam, pay the Jizya (tax) of “If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.” The jizya is “…the cornerstone of an entire system of humiliating regulations that institutionalize inferior status for non-Muslims in Islamic law.” Peaceful coexistence as equals in a pluralistic society is not one of the choices. Muhammad says he has been commanded to fight against people until they become Muslim and those who resist risk forfeiting their lives.
And what of so-called moderate Muslims? A significant number don't actually know what is in the Qur'an, because prayers are Arabic and most Muslims don't speak the language--most aren't even Arabic and, like many other religions, there are some who also aren't all that observant. Nevertheless, this is changing with increased communications.
