My alter ego and partner in crime, Robert Spencer, has a new book out: The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran. The Conservative Book Club says that it's a "witty and breezily written guide to the Koran" that explains "what the Koran says about who Infidels are and what must be done about them;
appallingly harsh teachings on women; what it really says about warfare against
Infidels; its strange teachings on Christians and Christianity; and its
relentless demonization of the people whom the Koran identifies as the chief
enemies of the Muslims: the Jews. He shows how the Koran developed, why central
Muslim claims about it are false, and even provides a revealing and disquieting
glimpse into the Hadith, the traditions of Muhammad that for Muslims worldwide
are second in authority only to the Koran itself."
Why do we need a book on the Koran now? The Book Club review goes on: "A huge number of policy decisions are predicated upon the assumption that the Koran teaches peace, and that those who brandish Korans and commit violence are misunderstanding their own religion and perverting the teachings of their own holy book. These include U.S. government postures toward Pakistan and Egypt; immigration matters; airport security procedures; military strategies in Iraq and Afghanistan; domestic anti-terror policies; and our acquiescence to Saudi Arabia's Islamic proselytizing campaign in America and many other countries. That's why The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran is so urgently needed: it shows how and why U.S. policies in these areas are not only wrong but dangerous to our national security -- and sounds a clarion call for a restoration of sanity on these issues in our national security establishment."
