Robert Spencer believes that the “true” and “pure” Islam as set forth in the Koran and the Haditha promotes violence against unbelievers.
It does not make any difference if Robert is right or not.
The jihadists who fly planes into buildings, who strap bombs around themselves and who drive SUV’s into groups of students think so.
There are imams in American mosques who teach that form of Islam.
There are imams in mosques all over the world who teach that form of Islam.
Until the Muslims who both believe and persuade their fellow Muslims otherwise, we are all in danger if we do not recognize the power of the violent form of Islam that Robert Spencer exposes on Jihadwatch and in his books (The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and The Truth About Muhammad).
Anyone, Muslim or nonMuslim, who dismisses Robert is simply sticking his or her head in the sand and denying the reality of the jihadists.
That is why Robert Spencer is important. We need to know the mindset of the jihadists, our enemy.
