The renowned historian Bat Ye’or, author of The Decline of Eastern Christianity Under Islam, Eurabia, and other great books, says this:
“Robert Spencer incarnates intellectual courage when, all over the world, governments, intellectuals, churches, universities and media crawl under a hegemonic Universal Caliphate’s New Order. His achievement in the battle for the survival of free speech and dignity of man will remain as a fundamental monument to the love of, and the self-sacrifice for, liberty.”
I’m honored by her words, but I wonder: why does it require any intellectual courage at all to discuss jihad terror and Sharia oppression in an honest and realistic manner?
Because the establishment media and the political elites have bought wholeheartedly into the idea that to discuss such things is to engage in “Islamophobia.” And in doing so, they’re shutting down discussions we need to have in the public square about Islam and the rights of women, gays, non-Muslims, and others.
This is the focus of my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe: as such discussion continues to be stigmatized, there are genuine concerns about Islam that need to be brought out in the open — or else the West is opening itself up to a future of civil strife and worse.
