An American Conservative Newsletter on Islam!

A prof just forwarded this newsletter to me, and its rather shocking. Normally I would find this hillarious and the work of a small, retarded group but what is alarming is that their book "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)" is on the NYT best sellers list.

On a different note, there's an excellent article by Michael Byers, an International lawyer, in the London Review of Books entitled "War Crimes", if you've got time check it your nearest library; the online version is subscription only but i'll try to find a free copy.

P.P.S here's that newsletter.

Dear Fellow American,

Yesterday, Islamic radicals detonated a series of bombs in crowded trains in Bombay, India killing nearly 200 people. Also yesterday, in a separate incident in India, Islamic terrorists lobbed a grenade into a bus, killing many of its occupants.

Murder by radical Muslims is not new to the people of India, Spain, France, England, Israel, Indonesia and many other countries around the globe. And we must never forget the thousands of Americans who have died here at home and abroad at the hand of Islamic terrorists.

What prompts these attacks? What do these terrorists hope to gain? HUMAN EVENTS wants you to have the answers to these questions, answers you are unlikely to find in the mainstream press. That's why we are giving away a free copy of the New York Times bestseller The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusade).

Numerous books have tried to explain the religion in whose name these terrorists acted. Most of these books strike a common theme: "True" Islam -- as opposed to the terrorist's "extremist" version -- promotes peace, justice, freedom and tolerance. The problem with this argument is that it is false and, therefore, dangerous, since it blinds us to the true nature of the enemy we face. But now, in the The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), Islam expert Robert Spencer reveals what all the mainstream media conceal about Islam.

Exposing myth after myth of the "Islam means peace" establishment, Robert Spencer, in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, tackles all the hot-button issues regarding Islam and the Crusades, including:
  • Why modern-day jihad warriors (like those in Canada, U.S., Britain, India and elsewhere) despise democracy and will do all they can to resist it.
  • Mohammed: the "Perfect Man"? That's how Muslims regard him. Details about his character and in Mohammed's career of bloody conquest that make him a dangerous role model.
  • The roots of Islamic terrorism and violence in the Koran.
  • The stifling effect Islam has on science and free inquiry, accounting for its failure to prosper -- and hence of its murderous envy of the West.
  • How the much-ballyhooed (and grossly exaggerated) "Golden Age" of Islamic culture was largely inspired by non-Muslims.
  • The ghastly lure of Islam's X-rated Paradise for suicide bombers and jihad terrorists.
  • How Mohammad ordered -- and rejoiced in -- the assassinations of his enemies. How he lied and broke treaties as a matter of course.
  • Islamic law: how it institutionalizes oppression of Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims in Islamic societies.
  • How the Koran and Islamic law treat women as nothing more than possessions of men
    Islam's only overarching moral principle: "if it's good for Islam, it's right".
  • The Crusades: not acts of unprovoked aggression by Europe against the Islamic world, but a delayed response to centuries of Muslim aggression.
  • Why Western leaders who think non-Muslims can "win hearts and minds" among Islamic jihadists are naive.

Does it sound like honest, straightforward journalism to you? Good. Because it is truly remarkable how much truth can be uncovered by an honest investigation of the facts. For example did you know:

  • The good news about the economy just keeps rolling in. Thanks to the Bush tax cuts three years ago, the federal deficit is shrinking and millions of new jobs have been created
  • Federal regulations and subsidies contributed to the Enron fiasco.
  • Taxpayers can expect to shell out an additional $50 billion each year to cover expanded welfare roles if the proposed "guest-worker" bill recently passed by the Senate gets through the House.
  • Hillary Clinton could use millions of dollars, raised by her husband through speaking fees, for her potential presidential election campaign. China and other foreign interests are major contributors.
  • In an encouraging sign for the future, strong conservative leaders have been winning straw polls in state conventions around the country.
  • Teenage girls who have abortions are twice as likely to commit suicide and are much more likely to suffer other mental-health problems.
  • The National Education Association -- the nation's largest teachers union -- spent over $90 million from 2004 to 2005 on (mostly liberal) political activities.
  • The Iraq war is consuming far less of the U.S. GDP than other wars in the past.
  • A government agency sponsored a drug conference that included a lecture titled "You don't Have To Be Clean and Sober... Or Even Want To Be".
  • It costs more for the United States Postal Service to deliver a letter than for a gas company to deliver a gallon of gasoline to the gas station.
