In this shocking new book, author Robert Spencer details how jihad warriors have already established numerous footholds right here in America, and are an established growing, and ominous threat in Europe. Onward Muslim Soldiers reveals the openly violent contempt that radical Muslims in the United States and around the world have for Western freedom and tolerance, and details why a clash of civilizations is already upon us.
Using Muslim sources, Robert Spencer uncovers the tracts that influence radical Muslims - material full of naked hatred and intolerance, material that is freely and popularly available and that is almost completely ignored by the establishment media.
This explosive book concludes with a series of practical steps that we must take to combat jihad terrorism - before it's too late.

Muslim response to the claims of " Robert Spencer " .
As a Muslim , I feel sorry to read such book . This book is a solid evidence of the so called " Islamophobia " . It's clear that Robert
...
More Spencer bears so much hatred for Islam and Muslims -- despite his claims that he doesn't . And I understand that he's one of millions of those who represent this trend . I'm aware of the fact that Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations have played a big role in giving a boost to this growing hatred ; their horrible deeds have been taken to represent Islam ( although their deeds have nothing to do with Islam ) .
I wish I could refute all the claims made in this book , but I'll just invite the readers of this review -- whether Muslims or Non Muslims -- to share their thoughts on my blog . My blog is devoted to refuting all the allegations of the anti-Islam propaganda , so please dear readers sign in and voice your opinion . My blog is : kholoud-muhammed.blogspot.com ..
I'll just quote some of the points I've talked about in my blog along with a few verses from the Noble Quran to refute the allegations of " Robert Spencer "
[quote]
*This question is frequently asked ; is Islam a religion of peace ? Unfortunately , many people associate Islam with violence and terrorism , and this is due to :
-- The biased media of the West that presents Islam only through Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations -- although the deeds of Al Qaeda and all the extremist organizations have nothing to do with Islam .
-- Lack of understanding of the teachings of Islam .
-- Misbehavior of some Muslims which has been taken to represent the teachings of Islam.
*Islam is an Arabic word that is derived from the root " silm " and " salam " . Both " silm and salam " mean Peaceful submission , surrender and obedience to Allah Almighty . Salam itself as a word means PEACE ..
* " And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. " [5:2]
*Allah also tells us : " Pray to your lord with humility and in secret . He ( Allah ) does not like the transgressors . And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope " [7:55-56] .
*Besides , Islam calls for peaceful co-existence between people as the Holy Quran says : " O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you might know one another ( without hating eachother ) . Verily, the noblest of you in Allah's sight is he who is the most righteous....." [49:13] .
*" Whoever kills a soul - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief on the earth - it is as if he had killed the entire mankind and whoever saves a soul , it is as if he saved the entire mankind " [5:32]
*"And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely. Then, would you compel the people in order that they become believers? "[10:99]
*" Let there be no compulsion in religion " [2:256]
" Truth is from the Lord , whoever wills let him believe and whoever wills let him disbelieve " [18:29]
* Prophet Muhammed PBUH said :"Whoever shows no mercy, will not be shown mercy on the Day of Judgment" .
* He PBUH also said : Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.” (Abu Dawud)
