Book Review Time Robert Spencer's politically incorrect guide to Islam and the Crusades

If you are looking for light reading at an enjoyable clip on the non PC version of Islam this is your book. If you are looking for depth and scholarly reading avoid this book. There is a place for overviews but I still maintain that the Great Divide by Alvin Schmidt is more relevant. However not all our books are meant to be long winded point by point scholarly dismemberments. There should be a place and time for fun books as well.

There is an appearence of Dr David Yeagley towards the end when a white female overdosed on Chomsky assumed that a Native American would agree with her far left idiotic views. We had a similar moment here early in the blog where the Disgruntled Chemist lectured Warren about the sins of our colonial past without realizing he was lecturing a Native American about his own history.

Yet Chapter 17 does pose a serious question that we Conservatives may take way too lightly. My Coptic friends in Jersey City often tell me that speaking out publicaly against Jihad and the realities of Islamic history is inviting danger. The question of what American voice will be our Van Gough is a question of not if but who and when. The question is will we stay silent or will there be a powerful backlash against Muslims. Many times in NYC Muslims have threatened people who speak up for Israel , Copts and Assyrians including myself.

Yet as I am an American nobody from the far left or Jihadi schools will ever silence me. I hope that if and when the jihadist behave in their true charachter that we do not harm innocent people like convenince store clerks. However when that day comes we will have to look at the left wing enablers and hold them equally acountable.

What I like about Spencer's book is that it's user-friendly. I've recommended the book to high-school students and to their parents who have kept their heads in the sand.

Had Spencer's book been published shortly after 9/11, more people might understand the truth about Islam.

Hey Beaker! It's been a great fishing summer. The most scenic trip was a 4000 mile drive to catch one 12&3/4 inch brown trout.
Now about Jihad, the Jihadists have continually threatened war and death to all who will not be controlled by Islam.

A well regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Look dickheads YOUR FREEDOM IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. YOUR PERSONAL PROTECTION IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. That includes protecting yourself from a power hungry government.
Those of you who have abdicated your responsibility for your protection to the slurp at the donut trough gestapo will not be protected. You will become sorry.
Los Angeles twice and now New Orleans. Gun Control make criminals and jihadists safe, not you.

You paragraph line is interesting. Today I mentioned an article by Tony Blankley about the Islamist threat in Europe. He too, worried about the wrong response to the problem: vigilante violence. That’s why we must educate people so that they respond rationally and not just lash out. As long as the PC left tries to suppress debate and discussion with cries of bigotry, there will be no sane and rational discussion. Their fears may just become a self-fulfilling prophesy.
