“The Crusades were one of the few times the Church put steel in its spine — and then we apologize for it.”Dr. Bill Warner is the founder of the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI). The video below records a talk he gave recently about the real history of Islam, and why there is such a powerful tendency towards collective amnesia about it in the West.
His account of the destruction of classical civilization by the Great Jihad is a superb follow-up to Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited by Emmet Scott, which was examined at length here last month.
This is possibly the best concise exposition of the history of Islamic violence that I have ever heard:
Dr. Warner's site, Political Islam should be very familiar to regular readers here on the 'Corner.
The topics covered by Political Islam all have to do with Islam, sharia law and explain how Islam is NOT a religion but a political ideology. Spend some time at Political Islam and you come away with a much better understanding of Islam and sharia law.
Thanks to the Baron from Gates Of Vienna for the introduction used up at the top of the feed.
