A PIECE OF RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY
The book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusaders)" by Robert Spencer is outright offensive, racist and based on bigoted propaganda. The lack of author’s knowledge about Islam is glaring as the book is written under the influence of extremist views, with a sinister purpose. It is more of a piece of propaganda against Islam, than anything else. The Americans are people of conscious, fairness and moderation, and such a piece of religious bigotry does not reflect the noble American culture. Does Robert Spencer intend to start a religious war in this already tumultous world? After reading Robert Spencer’s book, one feels that there is no difference between the thinking of Osama bin Laden and the author – both are advocates of hate and religious bigotry.
