is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and the author of fourteen books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Truth About Muhammadand The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) (both Regnery). His latest book is The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS (Regnery). Coming in 2016 will be The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran(Regnery).
Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the U.S. Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group, the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), and the U.S. intelligence community. He led such training sessions regularly for six years until October 2011, when Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups wrote to Homeland Security Advisor (and current CIA director) John Brennan, demanding that Spencer be removed as a trainer for teaching JTTF agents about the belief system of Islamic jihadists; Brennan immediately complied.
Spencer has been banned by the British government from entering the United Kingdom for the crime of pointing out that Islam has doctrines of violence against unbelievers. He has been boycotted by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for refusing to adhere to their “Islam is a Religion of Peace” line, and was invited by name to convert to Islam by a senior member of al-Qaeda.
