The Truth about Muhammad by Robert Spencer .

I have finished reading the book called The Truth about Muhammad by Robert Spencer. This book was written in 2006 and published in paperback in 2007. Robert Spencer is a director of Jihad Watch a wonderful website that reveals the jihad and other problems spreading the world in the name of Islam. Muslims regularly disagree with free speech and expression by giving out death threats to anyone who criticizes their religion or their prophet, Muhammad. Because of these threats Robert Spencer lives in an secure, undisclosed location. It would be stupid for me to criticize Muhammad or Islam in this blog in case Muslims are offended. Therefore I will only discuss the reader experience you get from reading this book.

I bought this book for £7.24 on Amazon and it is worth every penny. The government of Pakistan announced on 20 December 2006 its ban on Robert Spencer's book, The Truth About Muhammad, citing "objectionable material" as the cause. This is a shame because this book tells the truth that Muslims want to keep quiet. Robert Spencer reveals the life, actions and preaching of Muhammad using as sources the Islamic holy books of the Qur'an, the Hadith and the Sira.

Reading this book the reader understands the history of Islam, how it started and how Muhammad is worshiped as the holder of "an excellent example of conduct" which Muslims strive to follow and emulate. This is why Islam is not the religion of peace that Muslims claim it is but the most intolerant religion on earth. At the end of this book you understand just what is happening today because Muslims are following the actions and preachings of Muhammad. Robert Spencer has given you the missing pieces of the jigsaw so that you can see the full picture. Everything now makes sense to me and I understand what has gone wrong over the last 1,400 years. The Prophet of Islam is not a hero but a violent political activist of his day. It is a shame that so many people today follow his example and that our politicians still let Muslims publicly proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace when clearly it is not.

If you ever wanted to know what makes Muslims tick then this is the book for you. It explains all those things you always wondered about and you can then understand the religious impulse that drives Islam today.
