Robert Spencer's New $3 Booklet: 'The History of Muslim Persecution of Christians'
- By Press Release
The Freedom Center is pleased to release Robert Spencer’s new booklet: “The History of Muslim Persecution of Christians”
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.

Researchers Discover New Clue That May Help Explain Hunley’s Loss
- By Friends of the Hunley
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.
