Robert Spencer talked about his book, The Truth about Muhammad: The Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion, published by Regnery Publishing. He argued that the example of Muhammad, the founder of Islam, justifies jihad and terrorism. He used primary sources to detail Muhammad’s development from a preacher into a political and military leader and evaluated modern biographies to show how Muhammad has been changed for Western audiences, lulling them into consoling but false conclusions. He described Muhammad’s life and teachings as violent and urged Americans to understand the true nature of Islam in order to effectively combat terrorism. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
