Stanford University (and other universities and colleges all across the U.S.) has a problem, and it isn’t that they’ve been inviting “crass or demogogic” speakers instead of “challenging and thought-provoking” ones. The problem is that university administrators and students carry out wildly counter-factual smear campaigns against speakers they dislike, painting them as “crass or demogogic” […]
“If you haven’t read Spencer yet, this is a splendid place to start; if you’ve read all his books but have people in your life who need to be snapped out of complacency about Islam – and don’t all of us have people like that in our lives? Isn’t that the whole problem? – a […]
Khomeini removed women’s rights. Today, Iranian women remove the hijab. My latest in PJ Media: News out of Iran is scant since the defenders of the Islamic Republic blocked all social media, but that one woman whom the world saw take off her hijab and stand silently and defiantly has become the symbol of the latest […]

The honor is all mine. Mark Tapson reviews my book Confessions of an Islamophobe at FrontPage: [To order Robert Spencer’s “Confessions of an Islamophobe,” CLICK HERE.] With the possible exception of freedom fighter and European political party leader Geert Wilders, there is arguably no critic of Islam more despised and feared by the Religion of […]
I spoke at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend on November 16, 2017, about the fantasy of “Islamophobia” victimhood posturing versus the reality of jihad terrorism. David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend 2017 The Breakers ~ Palm Beach, Florida ROBERT SPENCER: Thank you very much. A funny thing, I was in the supermarket the other […]
This morning I was on the Peter Boyles Show on Denver’s KNUS. Peter is a good friend and I’ve been on his show many, many times, but this morning was different, as Peter disagrees with President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and I think it is one of the best and […]
For more on how telling the truth will bring down the opprobrium of the world upon you, get the new book, Confessions of an Islamophobe, here. “The Watchtower on Jihad: An interview with Robert Spencer,” by Niram Ferretti, Informale, December 16, 2017: For many years Robert Spencer has written extensively about Islam and jihad, debunking […]
In this new video, I discuss the controversy that has broken out over a Maryland housing development that advertised and sold homes only to Ahmadiyya Muslims. Predictably, those who object to this are being accused of “Islamophobia.” And just as predictably, there is nothing to the charge, and plenty to be concerned about regarding this […]
In this new video, I discuss the recent threat from the Islamic State (ISIS) to behead Pope Francis, explaining how anomalous it is in light of his many statements downplaying and denying the reality of jihad terrorism.
This video is from November 20, but in light of yesterday’s jihad bombing in the New York subway, it is all the more timely.
In this new video, I discuss the case of Arman and Omar Ali, Muslim brothers from Texas who became devout in their observance of Islam and then joined the Islamic State (ISIS).
In this new video, I discuss the implications for Pakistan’s alliance with the United States of Pakistan’s release of jihad terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed from house arrest.
Jihad grandstanding over a propaganda fiction. My latest at Breitbart: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is insisting that Jerusalem is the “eternal capital of the state of Palestine” after President Donald Trump recognized the city as the capital of Israel. No Palestinian state has ever existed, but Abbas is leveraging the claim that Jerusalem is its third holiest […]
In this new video, I discuss the controversy over the UK supermarket chain Tesco putting Muslims in a Christmas ad, and Muslim “reformer” Maajid Nawaz’s claim that opposition to the ad is “racism.”
Andrew C. McCarthy is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York who led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center jihad bombing. He has reviewed my new book, Confessions of an Islamopbobe, in the latest issue of the New […]
In this new video, I explain how, while he was director of the FBI, Robert Mueller presided over and approved of the removal of all mention of Islam and jihad from counterterror training materials, thereby hamstringing agents’ ability to understand the motives and goals of jihad terrorists, and to counter them effectively.
Why would anyone think Muslims would react violently? My latest in FrontPage: President Trump displayed more courage and integrity Wednesday than Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama ever did when he ended twenty-two years of waivers postponing the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s move to Jerusalem, declared that the U.S. recognized that Jerusalem was […]
In this new video, I explain how the media is obfuscating the true meaning of the phrase “Allahu akbar,” and why it is irresponsible of them to do so.
“The word ‘Islamophobe’ is used to label two quite distinct phenomena: vigilante attacks against innocent Muslims which are never justified, and honest analysis of the motivating ideology behind jihad terror, plus opposition to that terror and Sharia oppression. If the latter is to be labeled Islamophobia, as it is in an attempt to discredit it […]
