Mr. Spencer has a new book out, but this one really lays the groundwork and is the more extensive exposition of the ideology of war and imperialism, masked as a religion, that we are up against. One can only hope our bureaucrats and intelligence people are studying it deeply. Lord knows our Politicians do not have a clue. The author's web site, unfortunately, has gone downhill probably due to constraints on his personal attention to it. So your best source of information at this time is his wonderfully written books.
This was a good book, but not a great one. It's a bit too verbose. The bottom line was conveyed too many times. It could, and should have been edited down to 200, instead of 300 pages. Good reading, but by page 200 the reader is left saying 'I've heard this before'
Onward Muslim Soldiers is the first book of this genre to pull away from the squeamish appoligetics of those who are afraid that the truth may offend someone. Spencer challenges the beliefs that islam allows for muslims and 'people of the book' to peacefully coexist and the spiritual nature of jihad. He masterfully shows how islam is only tolerant of other religions so long as they submit to muslim domination (via paying the poll tax) and make no sign of their religion. He also explores how in our Western attempt to be politically correct, we in fact blind ourselves to what exactly is being preached in mosque everywhere. Jihad is a very real part of islam, and if coexistance is going to be peaceful in the West, some assimulation must occurr.
