About this item
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warns Iran is developing nuclear weapons not just to annihilate Israel but to destroy the West. U.S. Senator Tom Cotton tells us the Iran deal will lay "nuclear trip wires" throughout the Middle East, while a German reporter writes ISIS is planning a "nuclear tsunami" to fulfill its apocalyptic version of Islam. Nuclear alarm bells are sounding throughout a region already filled with several raging wars. Those wars have changed the lives of millions. From a nineteen-year-old Yazidi girl sold into sex slavery, the ten-year-old Christian girl who found it in her heart to forgive her persecutors, or the veteran Kurdish general holding the line against the ISIS—these and so many others have been caught up into the midst of these fiery conflicts and developments that are fracturing the Middle East. The book plots a grid for these major and sometimes bewildering developments transforming the Middle East. Those developments include: In what could be the document defining our generation, the U.S., five other world powers and Iran signed a nuclear deal. Critics charge it all but guarantees the Ayatollahs of the Islamic Republic will become a nuclear power. After its barbaric splash onto the world stage in the summer of 2014, the Islamic State caliphate appears to be gaining strength and followers throughout the Middle East and from such faraway places as Mississippi. Christians in Syria and Iraq stood in the pillaging path of ISIS. Some call what has happened to the two-thousand-year-old church genocide against Christians in the very cradle of Christianity. Russia's leader Vladimir Putin launched the biggest military buildup inside Syria in decades: his warplanes are bombing ISIS. This development signals a much greater role for the former Soviet Union in the region and evokes Ezekiel's prophesied war of Gog and Magog. These developments affect your life. What happens in the Middle East can shake stock markets around the world, lead to a greater Western military intervention in the region, spark a confrontation between major powers or flood immigrants into your country. ISIS, Iran and Israel attempts to answer the question: What You Need to Know about the Mideast Crisis and Upcoming Mideast War.
