“I’m impressed by PJ Media’s growth in readership and am grateful for the opportunity to bring the information I provide about jihad in all its many manifestations to a wider audience,” said Robert Spencer. “Through my columns I hope that readers gain a fuller awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, which is being downplayed, denied and ignored more than ever by the government, law enforcement, and mainstream media.”
