CAIR foiled: Raymond Ibrahim to speak at US Army War College next week

I  am scheduled to lecture about my book, Sword and Scimitar, at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle Barracks next week.  As American Thinker readers may remember, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fought hard against exposing the future leadership of the U.S. Army to the real history of Islam's war on infidels since its founding by Mohammed:

June 14, 2019: US Army War College Surrenders to CAIR

June 26, 2019: National Assn of Scholars backs Raymond Ibrahim against Muslim pressure group in open letter to President Trump

August 2, 2019: 10 congressmen hit Army War College with letter decrying surrender to CAIR

The description and flyer of the event, as they appear on the U.S. Army Heritage & Education Center, a branch of the War College, follows.

Sword and Scimitar

On Wednesday, February 26 at 6:30 p.m., at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC), author Raymond Ibrahim will address the historical roots of the Christian-Islamic rivalry in, “Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West.” From the birth of Islam and the long forgotten battles leading to the present day conflict, Ibrahim will provide historical and religious context to understand the current relationship between Islam and the Western world. He will draw on his research of original Greek and Arabic sources used for his 2018 book. The lecture will be followed by a moderated discussion.

Raymond Ibrahim is a book author and speaker on Middle East and Islamic topics. He is currently the Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, and Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum. Ibrahim’s presentation is part two of the Controversies second theme “Historical Underpinnings of Conflict between Islam and the West,” and the fourth in the “Controversies in Military History Lecture Series.” This series provides an educational forum for our audience to examine provocative topics in the interest of academic growth and promoting communication. This series is designed to serve as an important step in evaluating differing perspectives, while encouraging open, professional dialogue on potentially opposing opinions. Lectures and topics do not necessarily reflect the policies or opinions of the USAHEC, the U.S. Army War College, or the U.S. Army.

Attendance is free and open to the public.
