Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and the author of fourteen books, including two New York Times bestsellers, The Truth About Muhammad and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) (both Regnery). His latest book is The Complete Infidel's Guide to ISIS (Regnery).

Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the U.S. Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group, the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the U.S. intelligence community.

What others are saying about this book:

“As always, Robert Spencer is scholarly, thorough, fearless, and insistent in making sure we know the Islamic State. Don't say you haven't been warned.” - Andrew C. McCarthy, contributing editor of National Review and New York Times bestselling author of The Grand Jihad, Willful Blindness, and Islam and Free Speech

“Contains everything the people of the free world need to know about the foremost threat to freedom, and to every free person. This book shows how ISIS plans to sow murder and mayhem—and above all, how it can and must be stopped.” - Geert Wilders, member of parliament in the Netherlands and leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV)

“ISIS is here. If sanity still prevailed in our government and media, this book would be required reading for all elected officials and journalists.” - Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative

Are you an Infidel? If so, this book is written for you:

If you are a Christian, you are an Infidel according the Koran and its most consistent adherents, ISIS or the Islamic State. As always, Spencer is spot on in his analysis of Islam and the emergence of the Islamic State. In Spencer's latest work, you will learn things about ISIS that you will never learn about from the main line politically correct media.

The rise of ISIS has been spectacularly fast. ISIS now controls huge parts of former Iraq and Syria and is awash in millions of dollars per day in revenue. Thousands of young educated people from Europe and the United States are risking arrest from authorities for going or attempting to go to the Middle East to join ISIS and its newly established caliphate.

Spencer takes the reader on an important tour of Islamic history and how the caliphate (an absolute authoritarian military political, religious leader) began after Mohammad's death. From its beginning, Islam has had a blood drenched history. The Islamic State wants to make sure they are on the cutting edge of this blood soaked political religion. Beheading people is their favorite method of killing people. They are innovators in other forms of barbaric savagery, such as burning people alive.

There are blocked texts sections in the book called NOT THAT THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM that document the Islamic State's faithfulness to Koranic teaching. Also, the Ostrich Alerts in the book show how far the so-called media experts, government officials and politicians will go in their denial of the overwhelming truth about the real Islam. These experts in denial still assure us the Islam is a religion of peace.

Spencer documents many of the Jihadist groups around the world that have currently pledged their support to ISIS. There is no doubt that sooner rather than later we as a nation will have to confront and deal with militant Islam. They are not going away, they are coming here. In fact, they are here already and planning to commits acts of murder and mayhem against non-Muslims. Multicultural politically correct leaders will remain in denial until war breaks out in the streets and will still be incapable of action to protect us.

The final chapter in Spencer's book is about why we must defeat ISIS. It contains important strategies to win. I would not waste much time in trying to get politically correct congress creatures to read the book. They are paralyzed with fear regarding what the media may say about them, if they speak the truth. We have to educate our neighbors and friends one at a time on the danger we are facing. For the most part, the majority of Americans understand the danger we are facing. We need to keep pushing and educating in every forum we can. The only political candidates willing to speak forcefully against Islam, are outsiders. Support them!

Christians in the areas controlled by ISIS are experiencing unspeakable horrors at the hands of these followers of Mohammad's genocidal political religion of backward Arab culture. Spencer chronicles the rape and selling of Christian girls into Islamic sexual slavery until your heart feels like breaking. All this is justified by Koranic teaching meticulously documented by ISIS. As Spencer shows in this book, they document all of their perverse actions with citations from the Koran.

The book is not what you can call enjoyable reading, but necessary to read and disseminate if we are to survive as a nation. If you want our nation and future to be secure, get this book and make sure you do your part to get it widely publicized.
