Revisionist vs conventional history?

Reader comment on item: Jews and the Qur'an

Submitted by Ignoramus (Finland), Mar 14, 2022 at 14:18

Hello Mr. Pipes. Thanks for covering these topics, I'll have to add this book to my wishlist! I have a few also questions:

1. What themes are focused on in revisionist vs conventional history?
2. Is one approach better or more objective than the other?
3. What do you mean by "people love dead jews"?

Keep up the good work!

  1. See Robert Spencer's Did Muhammad Exist?
  2. Yes, the revisionist is superior.
