The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)

Exclusive hardcover edition — not available in stores!

When PC propagandists assure us that jihadist terror doesn’t reflect “true,” “peaceful” Islam, they’re not only wrong, they’re dangerous — because they lull America and the West into letting their guard down against their mortal enemy. And not only do self-appointed “experts” lie elaborately and persistently about Islam — they have also replaced the truth about Christian Europe and the Crusades with an all-pervasive historical fantasy that is designed to make you ashamed of your own culture and heritage — and thus less determined to defend it. But now there’s a remedy: in “The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Islam (and the Crusades),” Robert Spencer reveals all the disturbing facts about Islam and its murderous hostility to the West that other books ignore, soft-pedal — or simply lie about.

This book is a unique guide to the bloody teachings and history of Islam, and to the Crusades that still stand today as the Western world’s most sustained and successful defense against the warrior hordes who were inspired by those teachings. Exposing myth after myth of the “Islam means peace” establishment, Spencer (director of and the bestselling author of Islam Unveiled and Onward Muslim Soldiers) here tackles all the hot-button issues regarding Islam and the Crusades.

Not “politically correct” — just true:

  • The Crusades: unprovoked Western aggression? How, in fact, Muslims armies overran the predominantly Christian Middle East, then drove deep into Europe long before any Crusade was even contemplated — and did so in obedience to core teachings of the Islamic faith
  • How the much-ballyhooed (and grossly exaggerated) “Golden Age” of Islamic culture was largely inspired by non-Muslims
  • Muhammed: the “Perfect Man”? That’s how Muslims regard him. Details about his licentiousness, cruelty, and ruthless ambition that make him a dangerous role model
  • Muhammad as “Prophet”: how he received convenient “revelations” that justified his insatiable lusts and numerous marriages — including one to a 9-year-old girl
  • How Muhammad ordered — and rejoiced in — the assassinations of his enemies. How he lied and broke treaties as a matter of course
  • Muhammad vs. Jesus: proof that Christianity teaches peace and Islam violence — and that there is nothing in the Bible that rivals the Qur’an’s exhortations to warfare
  • The stifling effect Islam has on science and free inquiry, accounting for its failure to prosper — and hence for its murderous envy of the West
  • The ghastly lure of Islam’s X-rated Paradise for suicide bombers and jihad terrorists
  • Islamic law: how it institutionalizes oppression of Christians, Jews, and other non-Muslims in Islamic societies
  • How the Qur’an and Islamic law treat women as nothing more or less than possessions of men
  • Islam’s only overarching moral principle: “if it’s good for Islam, it’s right”
  • Why Western leaders who think non-Muslims can “win hearts and minds” among Islamic jihadists are naive
  • Why modern-day jihad warriors despise democracy and will do all they can to resist it
  • Filmmaker Theo van Gogh: murdered on an Amsterdam street in broad daylight for offending Muslims — and other signs that violent Islamic intimidation has come to the West
  • Why Europe could be Islamic by the end of the twenty-first century

Above all, Spencer details how the jihad that the non-Muslim world faces today is in direct continuity with the one the Crusaders fought against. It continues today in Europe and even in America while pressure groups intimidate the media into silence about the real nature and goals of Islam. The whitewashed Islam they present, argues Spencer, hinders our ability to defend ourselves against Islamic terror.

Spencer also explains here what we must do to stop the jihad onslaught not only militarily, but culturally. He maintains that we will not be able to defeat today’s Islamic jihad without recovering pride in the superiority — yes, superiority — of Western, Christian civilization. If we surrender our culture, he warns, soon we will be surrendering our homes. But here at last is a book that helps you reclaim the glorious past of our civilization — and thereby defend that civilization more effectively in the present.

“The jihad that the Western world faces today is identical in its motivations and goals to that which Europe managed to stave off almost a thousand years ago – thanks in large part to the Crusades of which the West is now ashamed. Today’s jihad, as Spencer illustrates here, is proceeding on two fronts: one of violence and terror, and another of cultural shaming and the rewriting of history. Here is a devastating riposte to that revisionism — and a clarion call for the defense of the West, before it is too late.” — Ibn Warraq, author, Why I Am Not a Muslim, editor, Leaving Islam and What the Koran Really Says

“Sweeping away the politically correct myths about a tolerant, peaceful Islam brutalized by demonic Christian Crusaders, Robert Spencer in this powerful, important book lets the facts of history speak for themselves. Spencer’s rousing, straight-talking book is a much-needed antidote to the poisonous propaganda that compromises our current battle against jihadist murder.” — Bruce S. Thornton, author, Greek Ways: How the Greeks Created Western Civilization

“Spencer reminds us of the consequences of our failure to come to grips with the message and implications of Islam. And he warns against the spirit of masochistic self-loathing that permeates the Western elite class. In a sane world Spencer’s recommendations — notably that the upholders of sharia should be treated as political radicals and subjected to appropriate supervision – would not be deemed ‘politically incorrect’ but eminently sensible.” — Serge Trifkovic, author, The Sword of the Prophet
