Violent Messianic movements a running theme in Islam’s history

Rebel Staff

 

On last night’s show, Robert Spencer joined me to discuss his new book, “The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS.”

Until 9/11, most people had never heard the word "jihad" but Islam has been at war with the West since its founding 1400 years ago.

In this segment, Spencer discusses the first jihad the U.S. fought against way back in the late 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century and points out other apocalyptic, revivalist movements in the history of Islam before and after.
