Bill Warner holds a PhD in physics and math, NC State University, 1968. He has been a university professor, businessman, and applied physicist. Dr. Warner founded the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) and is its director. He has produced a dozen books, including a Koran, a biography of Mohammed and a summary of the political traditions of Mohammed. He also developed the first self-study course on Political Islam. He has given talks nationally and internationally about Islamic political doctrine.
We begin by diving headfirst into the history of Islam. Bill differentiates between the historical Muhammad and the Muhammad of the Quran. Unbeknownst to many, Muhammad spent much of his life as a politician and jihadist, and was involved in many assassinations. Bill reminds us that jihad is not only of the sword, but also of of the tongue and pen – meaning that Islam’s war against the West is being waged on the cultural/political level as well. We also detail the process by which Islam subjugates non-Muslims after they have been conquered.
In the members’ hour, we discuss Islam’s historical intolerance of other religions and cultures. Bill reminds us that much of the Middle East and North Africa were Christian prior to the spread of Islam, and that the crusades were in reality a reaction to this encroachment. We also touch upon the myth of the Islamic “Golden Age.” We then shift the conversation toward more contemporary issues, such as the current threat Islam poses to the West and how political correctness prevents people from discussing this pressing issue. In conclusion, Bill argues that people need to simply tell the truth about Islam and stop worrying about being called “racists” or “Islamophobes.”
