For years, Robert Spencer has endured insults and death threats because of his endeavors as director of Jihad Watch. If one tells the truth about Islam, one is at risk of ending up in the crosshairs of a response which is somewhat more lethal than harsh language.

This book will remind Americans what “American exceptionalism” truly means.
