Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Robert Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch and a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. He is author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His new book is The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS.
Frontpage: Robert, welcome back to Frontpage interview.
Robert Spencer: Always great to chat with you, Jamie, thank you.
FP: Congrats on your new book coming out. Tell us about it.
Spencer: Thanks, Jamie. The book is entitled is The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS. And it’s just that: the first and only comprehensive history of fourteen centuries of jihad worldwide. This is the first time that there has been a book-length chronological narrative of the entire history of jihad, not just the jihad against Europe, which has been the focus of several worthy books, but also the devastatingly bloody jihad against India – a story that is almost entirely unknown in the West. This is also the first book that I know of that situates the jihad against Israel within the context of the 1,400-year history of worldwide jihad and Islamic anti-Semitism. Along the way, it touches on numerous related matters, including chattel slavery and the sexual enslavement of infidel women, which wasn’t invented by ISIS but actually goes all the way back to the beginning of Islam.
FP: This sounds like a much-needed book that fill in the gaps in a lot of people’s understanding of what we’re up against. How and when did you get the idea to write it?
