    An investigation into the historical and archaeological evidence of demons, curses, and possession, featuring some of the most gruesome artifacts and sites ever discovered 
    Demons, jinn, possession, sinister artifacts, and gruesome archaeological discoveries haunt this new book by Dr. Heather Lynn. Evil Archaeology investigates the archaeological record for artifacts and evidence of evil entities, revealing how demons from the ancient world may be dwelling among us. It also looks at the history and lore behind real relics believed to be haunted and includes historical accounts of demonic possession that go as far back as King Solomon invoking demons to help him build his famed temple. 
    Is there really a prehistoric fertility goddess figure that has been known to bring death to the families of anyone who holds it? Are there real vampire graveyards? Can the archaeological record prove the existence of demons and malevolent entities? 
    Some tantalizing questions Evil Archaeology addresses include: 
    ● What is the origin of demons? 
    ● What role did Sumerian demons play in the development of civilization? 
    ● Are curses real? 
    ● Can material objects contain evil? What about places? 
    ● What can we do to protect ourselves, according to historical records? 
    ● Was Jesus an exorcist?

    “A uniquely mind-blowing and brilliant contribution to our understanding of the various evil forces that have mired America in the never-ending Iraq war.” —Dr. Philip Zimbardo, New York Times–bestselling author 
     
    Midnight in Samarra is the shocking true story of Gregory Ford’s attempt to speak up and report the abuse and torture he saw being inflicted on the local population in Iraq, as well as secret, incriminating, enormous Iraqi arms stores of American-made Weapons of Mass Destruction with bills of lading implicating, among others, famous political families. An intelligence agent and medic, Ford also warned his command about the simmering anti-American fury of the local populace, but his intel was ignored and suppressed, along with his information about Saddam Hussein’s location that could have led to the dictator’s apprehension six months before his actual capture. Hundreds of millions of dollars in cash seized in the home of Hussein’s main banker as a result of Ford’s intelligence work vanished without a trace. As Ford was filing charges against his superior officers, they seized his weapons (illegal in a war zone), tried to declare him insane, abducted him by force, restrained him, administered a dangerous mind-altering drug during a Medevac flight, and tried to interrogate him while he was under.  
     
    Years later, Gregory Ford is still trying to get justice. While he endured libel, slander, innuendo, and feared for his life, he learned that the chemical injected into him during the drugging on the plane had done permanent damage to his heart and nervous system. Midnight in Samarra is the story of one man’s courage and conviction, and the horrifying truths of one of our most trusted and honored institutions.

    Palestine is probably one of the oldest countries in the world. It has a very rich history in terms of rulers that have conquered the land. Its history is not only rich, but also interesting because it has seen many wars. Some wars were cruel on it and some just provided it with the much-needed stability. Today, it sits proudly as a nation and has its rights and constitution. But back when it was founded, it was captured by different sets of dynasties. At times, it has been ruled by Muslims and, at times by Romans. Many people of many religions have set foot into the country. Learning about its history is a great way to determine the impact Jesus Christ had on the world as well. Not only does the book talk about the important events, but it also details them on how they panned out and why.
