Mr Ibrahim is a foremost authority on Islam and its history He pulls no punches with this oneHe goes into gory detail regarding the many atrocities committed by Islam from Muhammad down to the present8 major conflicts are outlined Yarmuk The Siege of Constantinople in 717 Tours Manzikert Hattin Las Navas de la Tolosa The Final Siege of Constantinople in 1453 The Siege of Vienna and It would be safe to assume that most have never heard of these pivotal battles It could easily be argued that the victories at Tours and Vienna saved Western Civilization from currently being IslamicMr Ibrahim goes into some unsettling detail about the horrible and ghastly tortures the Turks and other Muhammadans used against Christendom Here are some excerptsDid you know that skinning alive was a popular method of execution that was used on the commander of Famagusta in Cyprus in 1571 and the Serbian Orthodox bishopDid you know the army that invaded Europe during the siege of Vienna in 1683 numbered 300000 This was an incredible army to muster in the late 17th cThat blonde haired and blue eyed women were the most valued prize in the Arab slave markets and Viking raids were elicited by this demandThat in 1785 the Mahometan Barbary pirates captured two American ships the Dauphin and Maria and enslaved and paraded the crew through the streetsThat the Muslims knew about the New World since the 1500 s and had pious hopes that it would in due course be illuminated by Islam and added to the Ottoman realmThe book also has 8 pages of pictures photos and notes in the center as an added bonusI could go on and on with the fascinating history in this book It is difficult to put down Get this book and you will not be disappointedFor those with libraries on Islam and its true history Robert Spencer s latest very popular work and Paul Fregosi s oldie but goodie Jihad in the West are volumes that complement Mr Ibrahim s latest book which I would give 6 stars if I could
