Because Robert Spencer employs a number of deceptive arguments and tactics in his polemics that often go uncontested in the blogosphere including but not limited to:

conflating culture with religion, guilt by association, regurgitating Orientalist ideas, and weaponizing, revisiting and at times forging history to suit his arguments.
Denying the Bosnian genocide or claiming it as an exaggeration
Because Robert Spencer preys on the gullible, confused, and fearful in order to stoke the flames of hate and intolerance in their minds and hearts against Muslims at large, and Islam as a religion – rather than against terrorism and terrorists.
Because Robert Spencer claims to be so right, that no one dares prove him wrong, despite the numerous rebuttals of his shoddy slap-stick “scholarly” writings posted here, at LoonWatch, and elsewhere.
Because Robert Spencer claims to be so right, everyone is afraid to debate him and prove him wrong; yet, he consistently prefers to play dumb in turning a blind-eye to our calls for a debate, knowing that it would spell the end of his 15 minutes of fraudulent fame and deception.
Because we wished to grant Robert Spencer’s wish in responding to his false claims objectively, consistently, with universal logic and scholarly evidence. This site is simply an online database of the above for easy access and use.
