“Review: The History of Jihad,” by Edward Cline, August 20, 2018:
The initial three quarters of Robert Spencer’s The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS,
is so packed with information about the 1,400-year jihad waged by Islam
against the world that one can only read it with continuous, stunned
astonishment. You wind up asking yourself: did so many millions die or
become enslaved by the sword of Islam, AKA the “religion of peace”? Well, yes, they did. Whole populations were slaughtered, cities were destroyed, and nations, on all four continents, were erased as though they had never existed (Persia, for example, was never Iran).
Spencer meticulously traces the bloody depredations and history of Islam from the 19th
century clear back to Mohammad’s time in the seventh century, citing
current and contemporary works on the conquests and triumphs of Islam by
both Western and Islamic writers and chroniclers. The jihad never
stopped, and rarely lost steam, but if it lost impetus, it was only
because of infighting between sects of Islam, which temporarily sapped
and diverted its energy and appetite for conquest and dominance. But
jihad was rarely forgotten.
