Robert Spencer’s ongoing, unshakeable quest for self-publicity

spencerbook2Yet another plug from Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch for his forthcoming book ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)’.

Jihad Watch, 29 June 2005

The book description on Amazon reads: “Islam expert Robert Spencer reveals Islam’s ongoing, unshakable quest for global conquest and why the West today faces the same threat as the Crusaders did – and what we can learn from their experience.”

The back cover informs us: “Everything (well, almost everything) you know about Islam and the Crusades is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academics and Islamic apologists who who justify their contemporary political agendas with contrived historical ‘facts’.”

As distinct, presumably, from the scrupulous commitment to historical objectivity which characterises the writings of raving right-wing Islamophobes.
