Spencer criticizes Islam as militant and oppressive, and provides a historical perspective of the Crusades arguing that they were a late response of European civilization to centuries of invasion and occupation which had begun at the turn of the 8th century in the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, Sicily, France, and the majority of Eastern Europe. He attributes the civilizational clash between Islam and the West in the 21st century to a continuation of a 14 century long jihad began at the inception of Islam and discusses the difficulties of treating this topic in the current political climate.
