About the book:

The Iranian project to create an atomic bomb and the parallel fight by Sunni ISIS to dominate Christians, Jews, and infidel Muslims appears to many as political fiction. This new book by Fiamma Nirenstein sheds light on the siege that Shiite and Sunni extremist ideologies have placed upon our world, and the reasons why they will not give up unless we defeat them.
