The Freedom Center is pleased to release Robert Spencer’s new booklet: “The History of Muslim Persecution of Christians”

Description:

One can read, almost daily, of the atrocities and persecution of the ancient Christian communities in the Middle East and beyond at the hands of jihadists. This is not, as some try to claim, just a modern-day phenomenon.  Indeed, the Muslim persecution of Christians goes all the way back to the time of Muhammad.  Following Muhammad’s death, Palestine, Syria and Egypt, once the most heavily populated Christian areas in the world, quickly succumbed to Islamic invasions, and by the eighth century, Muslim armies had conquered all of Christian North Africa and Spain. The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Robert Spencer has just written a ground breaking new booklet, “The History of Muslim Persecution of Christians” that the Center has published.  This incredible and timely booklet chronicles the history of persecution over the past 1,400 years.

Museum's latest ad campaign teases exhibits using likenesses of lesser-known historical heroes

In a new advertising campaign, the National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building highlights Ness and other lesser-known law enforcement heroes featured in their exhibits.

Charleston, SC – Clemson University conservators have uncovered new evidence that may help explain why the Hunley submarine vanished off the coast of Charleston, S.C.  The new discovery resulted from the long, painstaking process of removing concretion—the rock-hard layer of sand, shell and sea life—that gradually encased the Hunley during the nearly 136 years she rested on the sea floor.
