Christianity or Islam: which is the real "religion of peace"? Almost any liberal pundit will tell you that there's a religion bent on destroying our Constitution, stripping us of our liberties, and imposing religious rule on the U.S. And that religion is . . .Christianity! About Islam, however, the Left is silent--except to claim a moral equivalence between the two: if Islam has terrorists today, that's nothing compared to the Crusades, inquisitions, and religious wars in Christianity's past. But is this true? Are conservative Christians really more of a threat to free societies than Islamic jihadists? Is the Bible really "just as violent" as the Qur'an? Is Christianity's history really as bloodstained as Islam's? In Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn't, New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer not only refutes such charges, but also explains why Americans and Europeans must regain an appreciation of our Christian heritage if we ever hope to defeat Islamic supremacism. In this eye opening work, Spencer reveals: * The fundamental differences between Islamic and Christian teachings about warfare against other religions: "Love your enemies" vs. "Be ruthless to the unbelievers" * The myth of Western immorality and Islamic puritanism and why the Islamic world is less moral than the West * Why the Islamic world has never developed the distinction between religious and secular law that is inherent in Christianity * Why Christianity has always embraced reason--and Islam has always rejected it * Why the most determined enemies of Western civilization may not be the jihadists at all, but the leftists who fear their churchgoing neighbors more than Islamic terrorists * Why Jews, Christians, and peoples of other faiths (or no faith) are equally at risk from militant Islam Spencer writes not to proselytize, but to state a fact: Christianity is a true "religion of peace," and on it Western civilization stands. If we are not to perish under Islam's religion of the sword--with its more than 100 million active jihadists seeking to impose sharia law--we had better defend our own civilization.… (més)

pg. 203 Roger Scruton quote, "70 percent of the world's refugees are Muslis fleeing from places where their religion is the official doctrine. Morever, these refugees are all fleeing to the West, recognizing no other place as able to grant the opportunities, freedoms, and personal safety that they despair offind at home."

He continues, "equally odd, however, is the fact that, having arrive in the West, many of the Musli refugees begin to conceive a hatred of the society by which they find themselves surrounded, and aspire to take revenge against it for some fault so heinous that they can conceive of nothing less than final destruction asthe fitting punishment." (footnote included in book)

pg. 205 serveral sections of the UN 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights were fought; article 16-men and women have equal rights in marriage; article 18- freedom of conscience, and article 19-freedom of expression. Sheikh al-Munajjid declared Muslims and non-Muslims should not enjoy equality of rights before the law. "These so-called rights and freedoms which they call for all people to enjoy regardless of religion make the monotheist and the polytheist equally entitled to these rights and freedoms, so the slave of Allaah and the slave of the Shaytaan are placed on nthe same level, and every worshipper of rocks, idols, or people is given the complete right and freedom to enjoy his kufr and the Hereafter." (footnote inc. in book)

I find this argument fascinating since they worship a man named Muhammad, and a rock called the kaaba, and satan they call allah.

Women are third class citizens; muslim slaves are second class. They claim to follow allah's laws, but a lot of their laws are created by man, the burqa and hijjab for example. They enforce this, because they blame the female for being nake meat without the covering and the cats that eat of the meat cannot be blamed. pg. 193

Is islam a religion of peace? Of course not. pg. 178 We cannot assume, in the teeth of the centuries of evidence, that islam will suddenly change its character and become compatible with demomcratic society as we understand it in the West. Such a trasformation might be remotely possible, but only if Muslims explicitly reject sharia and the islamic view of the state. So far they have not done so in ay significant numbers.

The book is a wealth of information for anyone who doesn't know much about islam or has believed the lies fed to the American people since 9/11. Listen to the imams themselves when they are talking to their own people.

pg. 177 CAIR's board chairman, Omar Ahmad, in 1998 "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth." He now denies ever saying this, but at the time it was printed no one challenged it.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune something very similar in 1993: "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future." (footnote incl in book)

pg 148 The choices for unbelievers are thus either conversion, subjugation as inferriors with the obligation of paying the tax, (jizya) and submitting to inferior status under the rule of Islamic law, or war. "Peaceful coexistence as equals in a pluralistic society" is not an option. (islamic hadith)

Robert Spencer gives the historical background for those that try to argue Hitler or Timothy McVeight were Christian, as well as the facts of the crusades.

The one issue I had with this book was the use of Christian being used when Catholicism was being discussed. Also, for anyone thinking the Judeo-Christians are to be feared more than islam, just remember, Christians do not have jihad. It's easier to criticize a religion knowing they won't hang you, burn you, or chop your head off for having a differing viewpoint.

I do recommend this book, because looking at the state of the world, people need to get educated in facts. ( )
