While Muslim and Leftist spokesmen continue to run from debate from me, and try to save face among their followers by falsely claiming I’m ducking them, David Goldman, the pundit formerly known as “Spengler,” has shown more courage. Goldman and I had an unfriendly exchange a few years back, during which he retailed such gnomic pearls as “The Koran is not a self-help book, nor it is it a political manifesto; it is an existential stance with respect to the world.” That millions clearly take it as both a self-help book and a political manifesto did not deter him. So tune in Tuesday night; this should be interesting.

Pacific (11-12 pm EST) on Blog Talk Radio. This week we feature: The Great Debate: Was communism a greater threat than Islam?
Two titans will go toe-to-toe:
David P. Goldman, the author of the new book, How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying, Too). After 9/11, he began writing weekly essays at Asia Times Online under the byline “Spengler.” After joining the masthead of First Things
magazine early in 2009, he revealed his identity and devoted himself to
writing, mainly on politics and strategy, but also publishing essays on
religion, classical music, literature and mathematics.
Robert Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and the author of ten books, including two New York Times bestsellers, The Truth About Muhammad and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) (both Regnery).
