Book Review by Kam Williams
“The Complete Infidel's Guide to Isis contains everything people of the free world need to know about the Islamic State. Islam is the foremost threat to freedom, and to every free person, in the world today. This book shows how ISIS plans to sow murder and mayhem in our countries, how it is setting out to realize those plans, why it is so appealing to Islamic youths in the West, and above all, how it can and must be stopped.”
-- Excerpted from Preface by Geert Wilders (pg. i)
Donald Trump created quite a stir with his recent remarks advocating a moratorium on Muslim entry into the United States. Everybody knows that what's behind the suggestion is not a hatred of all Muslims, but rather a growing concern about whether ISIS might strike again here.
The Islamic State is a brutal, regime of radical Islamists who rule a region of Iraq and Syria with an iron fist. The media-savvy savages post much of their dirty work on the internet. Apparently, they are proud of the fact that they stone homosexuals, behead Christians who refuse to convert, torture females caught with their heads uncovered, and immolate their enemies.
But does it pose a threat to the West? That is the question eloquently addressed in The Complete Infidel's Guide to Isis, an informative opus by Robert Spencer, the best-selling author of 14 books. Don't be duped by his timely tome's lighthearted title, for his tone is invariably dead serious in nature.
For instance, in a chapter entitled "ISIS Comes to America," he quotes extensively from the terror group's June 2014 manifesto. The 9 specific threats issued therein include "Every American citizen is a legitimate target for us," "Every American doctor working in any country will be slaughtered," and "Any company in Arab countries which employs Americans is a legitimate target for every Muslim."
Other chapters discuss the caliphate's checkered history, ISIS irresistible recruiting methods, whether it is consistent with the tenets of Islam, and its to-do list, to name a few topics. Overall, a valuable tool for anyone trying to separate fact from fiction about the radical jihadists promising to unleash hell all across this country.
