This book examines the tensions between Israel and Iran in order to assert that Iran, under the leadership of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, poses a dire nuclear threat to Israel and consequently to the U.S. and the rest of the world. The author interprets events from the 1980s to 2005 to support his view that the U.S. must act against Iran now. In seven chapters, he makes the case that Israel is the first line of defense in preventing Iran from waging nuclear war, and that the U.S. has a duty to aid Israel’s struggle against Iran and terrorist organizations. According to the author, Iran supports Hezbollah in order to distract the rest of the world while it pursues a nuclear weapons agenda with the intent to destroy Israel and the United States. The book presents Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a fervent religious ideologue who follows a militant religious quest and uses terrorism while insisting that Iran's nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. It also describes political ties Iran enjoys with other nations and the oil economics that fuel alliances as well as animosities in the Middle East. The author declares that time for diplomacy is running out as Iran is quickly developing its nuclear capacity; he considers several ways by which the U.S. could counter the Iranian threat, including war, and devotes a long chapter to describing various scenarios that could occur as a result of war with Iran. Appendices contain a letter from former U.S. President George W. Bush to Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of Israel, and a transcript of a 2005 interview the author conducted with Moshe Ya’alon, the former chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). Extensive notes for each chapter are located at the back of the book.
