Book Description

One of the most important booklets you will ever read, What Americans Need to Know About Jihad is essential to an understanding of the radical, expansionist, totalitarian ideology that seeks to establish a global Islamic state ruled by Islamic law, or Sharia. These goals and motives of Jihad are detailed in Islamic texts and by Islamic teachers and have been uttered by the likes of Osama Bin Laden, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah. In this booklet, Robert Spencer lays out the Jihadist ideology in a concise manner, examining the Islamic history behind each of the violent precepts and their modern applications. Spencer shows in chilling detail that the goal of the Jihad is not only isolated acts of violence but world domination by any means necessary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, racist, poorly researched rubbish. 24 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read many reviews on Spencer's work on Amazon, I had a feeling his attitude would be derogatory and bigotry. Nothing, however, could have made me prepare for this.

Spencer's evaluation of Islam rests entirely on quotations and works from Islamic radicals who any right minded person would know do not support true Islam or represent it the way it should have been used. His attitude that America and Israel are the superheroes and Islam is the super villain is absolute rubbish. Neither is able to escape the blame but his view is one that deserves no credit.

When quoting the Qur'an and Hadith he uses only brief snitches of both, such as when talking about women and violence against non-Muslims. If either, especially the Qur'an, are to be quoted then include several Stats before and after it or at least properly analyse each Ayat rather than dumping it in there because it looks threatening and fierce.

Spencer clearly also misunderstands the word Jihad. Whilst yes many Muslims have been whipped into a fury by using it as a way of battling Western and Israeli incursion it must be pointed out that Jihad is separated into higher and lower. The lower Jihad is what we see nowadays but the higher is more personal and set on improving the self of the body and of the spiritual faith (Imam) for the sake of Allah. The prophet Muhammad (SAW) stated that getting up with good intentions to remember Allah, pray, fast or just be friendly and opening is Jihad of the higher. This is what Americans need to know of Jihad, not the image of a fanatical Muslim gunman boasting of terrorism and destruction to any who do not agree with or are not Muslim.

Overall, Spencer seems to be like Wiertzema. A news fanatic looking at expressing his hatred of Islam regardless of how he does it or whether it is true or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every American, Israeli, Christian and Jew needs to understand... 27 Oct. 2012
By Ars Gratia Artis - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...jihadist Islam is one of the gravest threats facing the west today. This book is meticulously researched and spells out the threat clearly for any willing to grasp it. There are none so blind as those who will not see. Elements within our own government are in bed with jihadist groups for political gain and the pathetic leftist fad known as political corectness would seek to minimalize, marginalize and even punish those who would wake Americans up to this very real danger. If you care about the future of this great nation and about human liberty and dignity this is a must read.

Short, succinct and frightening. Every child in school should be taught the ways with which our way of live is being attacked. Most American adults do not understand.

Short but powerful book on the Jihad we face. It is not the one the media tells us about. In this little book you'll learn details of why Islam is doing what its doing around the world. Very detailed & well documented.

Don't learn what Jihad is from someone who hates Islam. Learn it from someone who actually knows what Islam is.
