spread over three continents, the attacks on the four cities are
almost simultaneous. In Denver, the President of the United States
coming home for the Thanksgiving Holiday barely escapes the
assassination attempt. London, Paris, and Riyadh are not quite as
fortunate as terrorists cause mass destruction. Later evidence ties
these deadly assassins to Saddam Hussein who has sent other
operatives around the world to do his bidding.
A new hope for
peace arises in the Middle East when oil is discovered off the coast
of Gaza. The President sends his friend Jon Bennett, accompanied by
Erin McCoy, to broker a lasting peace between Israel and Palestine.
However, before the negotiations can be completed, Israel recovers
proof that Iraq has nuclear warheads that Hussein used with a SCUD
and further evidence that the "Butcher of Baghdad" plans to turn DC,
New York, and Tel Aviv into metallic salt. Either Israel or America
must resolutely destroy Baghdad and its innocent Muslim population
to stop Hussein's global threat.
THE LAST JIHAD is an exciting
post 9/11 thriller that never slows down until the final page is
read. With President Bush and Ms. Rice gleeful aside, some key
underlying premises involving the Hussein threat must be accepted as
gospel (will smell like limburger cheese to the left) if the
audience wants to fully relish this exciting story line. Especially
terrifying is the reality of the key premise of how easy hijacking a
private aircraft is. Fans of political- military thrillers taken
from the headlines will want to read Joel C. Rosenberg's nonstop
action tale of potential mass destruction.
