The Power of Nightmares and 1300 years of Islamic Imperialism

Reader comment on item: The BBC Announces: There Is No Terrorist Threat

Submitted by Wallace Brand (United States), Jun 22, 2010 at 17:38

How does "The Power of Nightmares" deal with the last 1300 years of Islamic Imperialism which can be found in detail in Karsh, Islamic Imperialism, and Bostom, The Legacy of Jihad, Islamic Holy War and its Effect on Non-Muslims. Death, murder, rape plunder and misery were the lot of infidels who were on the receiving end of jihad. Muslim conquests were not the peaceful transitions of willing converts but conquest by the sword. Modern day Jihad is not an isolated incident, but a tradition going back 1300 years.
