    At the restaurant where he dined after the speech last Thursday, he was approached by an individual who had pretended to be a supporter.

    Spencer said that about 15 minutes later, when he returned to his hotel room, “I began to feel numbness in my face, hands and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously. I spent the night in a Reykjavik hospital.”

    The doctor states in his one-page report, dated May 12, that Spencer tested “positive for amphetamine and MDMA.” Reykjavik journalist Hjálmar Friðriksson, alerted WND to a copy of Spencer’s medical report written in English.

    An overdose of MDMA, commonly known as “ecstasy,” typically causes an increase in heart rate. Spencer told WND that the doctor “tried to downplay what happened,” but the report states clearly that he was drugged.

    “I can only surmise that the doctor knew who I was and didn’t want me to use the incident to make the Icelandic left look bad,” Spencer told WND.

    Spencer has given seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the US Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Justice Department’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council and the US intelligence community.

    A young Icelander came up to him at a restaurant who knew who he was, shook his hand while saying he was a big fan. Moments later another Icelander came up to him and shook his hand and said, “F— you.” Spencer decided to leave after the restaurant after that.

    “But the damage had already been done,” he writes. The author is listed as one of the New York Times’ bestsellers with “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)” and “The Truth About Muhammad.” His latest book is “The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran.”

    “I wasn’t and am not on any other medication, and so there wasn’t any other explanation of how these things had gotten into my bloodstream,” he said. The police was investigating the incident.

    Iceland is a small country and his visit had “triggered a firestorm of abuse in the Icelandic press, all based on American leftist talking points”.

    “Every story about my visit, had the same elements: the notice that the [Southern Poverty Law Center] claims that I purvey ‘hate speech,’ which is a subjective judgment used to shut down dissent from the establishment line,” he noted. After the event, one article even featured a big photo of Anders Breivik, but never quoted one thing Spencer said.

    He says “media demonization of those who dissent from the leftist line is direct incitement to violence. By portraying me and others who raise legitimate questions about jihad terror and Shariah oppression as racist, bigoted Islamophobes, without allowing us a fair hearing, the media in Iceland and elsewhere in the West is actively endangering those who dare to dissent.”
