The reader was superlative. And I've heard a lot if audio books. And the book is an act of intellectual courage.

It was very interesting to read this book. Being raised on the other side of the Mediterranean I was familiar with the history of the brutal occupation of the Near East and present day Greece by the Ottoman Turks. So it makes perfect sense to me to hear stories and examples from Muslim occupied Spain that were exactly the same as the Ottoman Turk occupation of Christian lands.
Why would Muslim domination be any different elsewhere?

Referencing a vast collection of Muslim, Christian and Jewish sources past and present the author clarifies Islam as an ideology of conquest whose ultimate expression in armed Jihad and goal quite literally world domination expressed explicitly in the Quran and numerous Hadith. Contrary to fashionable whimsical contemporary academic analysis the Muslim conquest of Spain.and its subsequent rule was brutal and uncompromising designed foremost to uphold the supremacy of Arab Muslims over its conquered subjects, prevent them "contaminating" Islam and extort from them protection money in the form of special taxes - all practices mandated by the Quran and upheld by Islam to this day.

This scholarly work vividly exposes the lie that Muslim Spain was a haven of tolerance and high Muslim culture. It's a must read for all who want to understand the richness of Visigoth Spain and how it was overshadowed and subsumed by heartless invaders whose fanatical religious iconoclastic zeal cast a shadow and stain on Europe that must be seen for what it was and not romanticized by modern politically correct revisionists.
