This comment on my new book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) has just been posted at Conservative Booknotes:
Here’s a reader comment on Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), which continues to sell fabulously well, especially considering the MSM’s refusal to acknowledge its existence. I’m hoping it hits the New York Times bestseller list, so they’ll have to run yet another story about the conservative book that everyone’s buying but no one (who exists in their universe) is reading.
I just finished reading Robert Spencer’s book. Surprisingly it’s a page-turner and possible to read in two determined sittings, if you do it on a weekend. Spencer is convincing: His quotations from the Qu’ran, and his insets comparing the Christian with the Islamic doctrine by citing their scriptures answer questions handily. He also chooses chronologically arranged historical events to support his conclusions about Islam.
This book is disturbing and would make an excellent topic for C-span’s Q & A or Book TV. I hope Spencer is not easily recognized, however, or careless about his personal security. The hideous curses that he (and Salman Rushdie) have been targets of make me fear for his safety.
MHG, don’t worry. Allah has so far not heeded requests to rip out my spine and split my brains in two.
