SPECIAL: Robert Spencer on his new book, “The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Until 9/11, most people had never heard the word "jihad."

But Robert Spencer had, and soon, people all over the world were turning to his website JihadWatch.com to learn more about America's "new" enemy.

But as Spencer (a Christian who is fluent in Arabic and can quote the Koran chapter and verse) can explain, Islam has been at war with the West since its founding 1400 years ago.

Spencer is so eloquent when it comes to debunking myths, such as the alleged "reasons" for today's Islamic terrorism. (It has nothing to do with the birth of the state of Israel or U.S. foreign policy, but everything to do, he says, with the teachings of Mohammad.)

We talk about little known historical incidents, like the Muslim slave raids on Ireland, and the role Islam has played in slavery for centuries, up to the present day.

All this and much more is laid out in his new book, the title of which says it all: The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS.

The Rebel is pretty quiet this week end, so I took the liberty of loading these videos in full dress uniform. Both are worth a ‘look-see’.

We must keep reminding EVERYBODY that not all Muslims are jihadis but ALL jihadis are Muslim.
Bruce, you do not need to be a Jihai to cut someones throat, all that is required is to follow the Quran.

Got a Muslim problem? Ask an Indian.

Interesting that Shakespeare wrote about Mores – I encountered the word in the Word this week : 1599 Geneva edition, and I checked the verse in others & found Ethiopian (have not looked at the blue letter yet but my money’s on Hebrew for Kush) – of course John Knox and the others at Calvin’s HQ may have only known African Muslims – I have no doubt that the Bible is God’s inerrant Word, but the English language changes over time and I thought this may interest some. I have been reading Jeremiah, but Ezekiel and Daniel also mention Mores where Kush or Hebrew word Cushy means the blackfella men of the Horn of Africa. Also for the record, Calvinism is a terrible idea, as it – like Roman Catholicism – elevates man’s words above or a round God’s Word. The “church fathers” got a LOT wrong. God has nothing bad to say about blackfella mobs and in fact Moses + Solomon both married them, and the Kushites helped Israelites multiple times, only once did they blue. Stick to the Scriptures and you’ll be right!

Jeremiah 46
9Come vp, ye horses, and rage ye charets, and let the valiant men come foorth, the blacke Mores, and the Lybians that beare the shield, and the Lydians that handle and bend the bowe.

I’m glad a few people still realize the history and the definition of terrorism. Pushing an agenda through violence

We must keep reminding EVERYBODY that not all Muslims are jihadis but ALL jihadis are Muslim. We must keep telling low-information friends and enemies that Islam is jihad. Whether it comes from coersion or taqia, it still has the goal of making the entire planet Islamic. There are no qualifiers in the Quran either. We know that the Bible has qualifiers for violence but there are NONE in the Quran.

Robert Spencer, this guy knows more about Islam than the Muslims do. His videos are a must view requirement for all Rebels, especially his debates with Imams, where he ties these so called experts into knots.
