Today I add a double whammy to my blogroll:
First, Mohammed -- a good overview; which is just that: eminently readable yet substantive, with links to citations where apt, and not apt to make one's eyes glaze over, as other accounts (cough! Spencer's Life of Muhammad cough!) tend to do.
Even the villains of history should be part of every person's pedagogy -- and all the more acutely appropriate when the minions who adore and follow that villain as the uswa hasana (beautiful model of conduct; cf. Koran 33.21) and al-insan al-kamil (the perfect man; good luck finding a source) are fanatically hell-bent on subjugating us and killing us to facilitate the grand strategy of that subjugation and/or if we resist the rightful domination of Islam.
Speaking of that grand strategy: My second addition to my blogroll -- the Stealth Jihad depends upon violence -- is a pithy summation I wrote a while ago articulating why the "Stealth Jihad" is not non-violent, as so many in the still inchoate anti-Islam movement (including its very coiner, Robert Spencer!) persist in simplistically implying.
