Video: Robert Spencer Gives Three Lessons From Islamic History for Today’s Policymakers
If these lessons were heeded, we would avoid numerous foreign and domestic policy mistakes.
On September 13, 2018, Robert Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch and a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, spoke at the Freedom Center’s Wednesday Morning Club in Los Angeles. Introducing his new and bestselling book, _The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS_, Spencer discusses three lessons from Islamic history that are unknown in the West today, and are often outright denied by those Leftists who are rewriting history in service of contemporary political agendas. Spencer shows how these lessons, if heeded, have massive implications for American foreign and domestic policy.
