New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer details the meteoric rise and unheard-of brutality of ISIS
ISIS is in the news every day. The Islamic State is spectacularly dangerous, and curiously wealthy. Who are they? What do they believe? Why do they hate America? Robert Spencer, leading terror expert, answers these questions—and more—while exposing the blood-drenched history and mysterious inner workings of the Islamic State.
The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS is the essential primer to comprehending one of the world’s most dangerous enemies. The brutality of ISIS is unquestioned; what remains misunderstood is their strength. Spencer expertly exposes deceptive propaganda and Western misunderstanding of an ever-present threat in an easily accessible and digestible format. ISIS attracts staggering numbers of followers and commits unspeakable acts of violence. Without Spencer’s straightforward insight, ISIS remains mysterious.
Spencer exposes the message behind the ever-cryptic ISIS machine, giving us a deeper look into the details of their terror campaign and unprecedented access to ISIS insiders.
In The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS, you will learn:
- The significance of ISIS declaring itself a “caliphate” and why that’s an especially dangerous sign for the West
- The ISIS timetable for conquering Rome by 2020 and witnessing Israel’s fall beginning in 2022
- How the Islamic State is working toward starting the battle of Armageddon now
- Why beheading victims remain calm in recruitment videos
- Why ISIS cares about healthcare
With its social media presence, cyber knowledge, and false promises of glory, ISIS has a presence on the world stage unlike anything we’ve encountered before. Spencer’s sharp, in-your-face assessment of America’s newest enemy affirms that they cannot be ignored any longer.
