Robert Spencer is living proof that there is no such thing as Islamophobia. It is thus a sign of our iconoclastic times that he is regarded as among the “most important propagandizing Islamophobes in the world.” So says the Southern Poverty Law Center, a demagogic “watchdog” group that specializes in mainstreaming the Left’s ostracism of “hate” (i.e., disagreement with the Left).

Spencer is not folding his tents. The intrepid scholar, commentator, and freedom fighter is pushing back. And, Spencer being Spencer, his refutation is learned, clever, and compellingly posited in an engrossing new book—Confessions of an Islamophobe.1
