A controversy has broken out over the web series “Islamicize Me,” and I feel partially responsible. That’s not because I had anything to do with the conception of the series — I didn’t, although I am in it (stay tuned) — but because it was inspired by a real incident with which I was involved. […]
Every day during this Ramadan, David Wood has been posting episodes of the video series he has produced in collaboration with Vocab Malone and Jon McCray, “Islamicize Me.” The idea is that three young men decide to live exactly as Muhammad directed for a month. It’s a biting satire based on the genuinely strange, dangerous, […]
“David Wood of Acts 17 Apologetics, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, & Jon McCray of Whaddo You Meme?? discuss the news of the recent arrest of Tommy Robinson, and the current state of the U.K with politics, free speech, and Islam in 2018.”
I’m soon going to be filming a small part in David Wood’s upcoming video “Islamicize Me,” and I’ll be extremely interested in the outcome of this poll he is conducting: “Should Robert Spencer Live or Die in ‘Islamicize Me’?,” by David Wood, Answering Muslims, April 9, 2018: In our upcoming “Islamicize Me” mockumentary, three men […]
For years, politicians and reporters have reminded us that Muslims are the real victims of Islamic terrorist attacks, since these attacks invariably lead to the specter of an anti-Muslim backlash. Following the latest ISIS-inspired bloodbath in New York City, however, major news outlets have informed readers of the plight of a new victim of Islamic […]
In March of this year, I explained why vehicular jihad would rapidly increase in popularity. Jihadis wasted no time in proving me right. Jihad is becoming thoroughly predictable. In support of ISIS, Sayfullo Saipov, who immigrated to the United States from Uzbekistan, rented a truck from Home Depot. On October 31, 2017, he drove the […]
Following the introduction of a Muslim character at the end of Season 7, the Season 8 premier of “The Walking Dead” introduced the show’s second Muslim character. But when the writers started explaining the Quran to us, it wasn’t long before they made some standard blunders. Let’s take a closer look.
The Independent recently published an article entitled, “How the Teachings of Islam Could Help Us Prevent More Sexual Abuse Scandals,” by Qasim Rashid (an apologist for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community). Rashid argues that the Qur’an and the teachings of Muhammad would be a tremendous benefit to women in the West. In a previous video, I […]
The superlatively brilliant David Wood takes apart the jaw-droppingly dishonest article by Islamic apologist Qasim Rashid, ““How the teachings of Islam could help us prevent more sexual abuse scandals.” Wood says: “You have to hand it to Qasim. Whatever he lacks in honesty and integrity, he more than makes up for in arrogance and stupidity.” […]
“A number of journalists and bloggers have confused counter-jihadist Robert Spencer with white supremacist Richard Spencer, just as they confuse opposition to jihad terror with racism. In this video, Robert Spencer and David Wood discuss the differences between opposing terrorism and promoting race-based bigotry.”
“We can learn a lot about what’s most important to a person by pondering his last words. In this video, David Wood discusses the parting thoughts of Jesus, Muhammad, and Nabeel Qureshi.” Brilliant, and enlightening. Watch.
On August 19, David Wood and I debated Shia scholars Shaykh Sakhawat Hussain and Sayyid Atiq Ebady in Philadelphia on the question, “Does the Quran promote peace?” I received this email from Sayyid Atiq the day after the debate: Hello Mr. Spencer, Thank you for accepting our invitation and attending the debate. I genuinely appreciate […]
“In Surah 9, verses 56-57 of the Quran, we read about people in the early Islamic community who were pretending to be Muslims because they were afraid of being killed by Muslims. But if Islam is a religion of peace, why would anyone need to pretend to be a Muslim out of a concern for […]
David Wood explains: “Politicians and the media often accuse Western critics of Islam of spreading Islamophobia (the irrational fear of Islam). When we turn to Islam’s most trusted sources, however, we find that Islamophobia has a different source—namely, Allah himself.”
David Wood, as many of you know, is an Islamocritic with an astonishing breadth of knowledge, as well as unparalleled wit and eloquence. He is also a man of immense generosity and depth of spirit. Please help him and his family now. “Wood Trip to MTM Conference“: Our two youngest sons, Reid and Paley, have […]
Recently, some people on Twitter suggested that Craig Considine, an Islamic apologist I’ve written about several times (see here and here), debate either the brilliant David Wood or me. I readily agreed, and David suggested a four-man debate, with Considine and Reza Aslan on one side and Wood and me on the other. That was […]
David Wood of Answering Muslims fact-checks the viral video “10 Lies You Were Told about Islam,” which (surprise, surprise) turns out to be full of lies itself.
