In the The Truth about Muhammmad
, New York Times bestselling author and Islam expert Robert Spencer
offers an honest and telling portrait of the founder of Islam unbounded by fear and political correctness, unflinching, and willing to face the hard facts
about Muhammad's life that continue to affect our world today.
Spencer details Muhammad's development from a preacher of hellfire and damnation into a political and military leader
who expanded his rule by force of arms, promising his warriors luridly physical (not the soul, to unite hearts vs. 98/6-7) delights in Paradise if they were killed in his cause
. He explains how the Qur'an's teaching on warfare against unbelievers 8/55 developed — with constant war 4/74-76, 89, 95 to establish the hegemony 8/39, 9/29 of Islamic (divine) 'law' (key ayah 5/48) as the last stage.
Spencer also gives the truth about Muhammad's convenient "revelations" justifying his own licentiousness; his joy in the brutal murders (slaughter 5/33, decapitate 8/12-14) of his enemies 41/28, 45/8-9
; and above all, his clear marching orders to his followers to convert non-Muslims to Islam
— or force them to live as inferiors under Islmaic rule.
Recognizing the true nature of Islam, Spencer argues, is crucial. Every citizen (and policymaker) who loves freedom should read and ponder The Truth about Muhammmad
