On May 28, CAIR’s Pennsylvania leadership…sent a letter to USAWC commandant Gen. John Kem and provost Dr. James Breckenridge urging them to revoke “the decision of the US Army War College to invite Mr. Raymond Ibrahim to deliver the prestigious 50th Annual Lecture Series of the US Army War College.”
The reason CAIR cites to disinvite me is that “Raymond Ibrahim’s book ( Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West ) … advance
a simplistic, inaccurate and often prejudicial view of the long history of Muslim-West relations which we ﬁnd deeply troubling.”
…although [the] book is 352 pages and covers nearly fourteen centuries, certain epochs in great detail, not once does CAIR highlight a certain passage or excerpt to support its claim that the book “is based on poor research.”
The reason for this discrepancy is simple: although long hidden, the history…in Sword and Scimitar is ironclad, verifiable, and beyond well documented; with about a thousand endnotes, …heavily based on primary sources, many of which are Muslim and from eyewitnesses. This history makes abundantly clear that Islamic terrorism and “extremism” are intrinsic to Islam, and have been from its first contact with Western civilization in the seventh century. Think of the atrocities committed by the Islamic State (ISIS) but on a much larger scale — and for over a millennium — bombarding every corner of Europe, and even America before it could elect its first president.
Put differently, the history presented in Sword and Scimitar proves everything that groups like CAIR are committed to suppressing.
…for those who become acquainted with Islam’s true history vis-à-vis the West — a history of virtually nonstop jihad and mind-boggling atrocities that make ISIS appear tame — there is no “What went wrong?” or “Why do they hate us?” to explain — only an unwavering, continuous line of violence and enmity…
Now why would muslims want to lie and deceive about the in-bred murderous terrorism that is their fundamental operating mode?
