The Debate on Islam by Robert Spencer

Jihad Watch: Spencer vs. Mohammed, Round II

Rober Spencer has had an ongoing "debate" with Kaleel Mohammed. It's been very interesting but this pretend question and answer written by Spencer was the best:

Me: The Qur’an teaches violence against unbelievers (with citations).

Islamic apologist: You are ignorant. It doesn’t mean that. You have to know hadith.

Me: The Hadith teaches violence against unbelievers (with citations).

Islamic apologist: You are ignorant. It doesn’t mean that. You have to know Islamic law.

Me: Islamic law teaches violence against unbelievers (with citations).

Islamic apologist: You are ignorant. It doesn’t mean that. And Muslims today don’t pay attention to these ancient laws.

Me: Modern-day jihad terrorists cite Qur’an, Hadith, and Islamic law to justify violence against unbelievers (with citations).

Islamic apologist: You are ignorant. Most Muslims see these things differently.

Me: Great. How will they refute the jihadist exegesis and so end jihadist recruitment among Muslims?

Islamic apologist: You are ignorant. I am not going to speak with you about this any more.
