Jay Sekulow, one of America’s most influential attorneys, closely examines the rise of the terrorist groups ISIS and Hamas, explains their objectives and capabilities and how, if left undefeated, their existence could unleash a genocide of historic proportions.

Recently, the world has been shaken by gruesome photos and videos that have introduced us to the now infamous terrorist group known as ISIS. The world’s wealthiest and most powerful jihadists, ISIS originated within Al Qaeda with the goal of creating an Islamic state across Iraq and Syria and unrelenting jihad on Christians. Separate from ISIS, the terrorist group Hamas has waged an equally brutal war against Israel. Both groups, if left undefeated, have the potential to unleash a catastrophic genocide.

Rise of ISIS gives a better understanding of the modern face of terror,andprovides an overview of the laws of war and war crimes. These laws differentiate between the guilty and innocent, and explain why the US military and the Israeli Defense Forces are often limited in their defensive measures.

The authors’ firsthand experience, including multiple appearances before the Office of the Prosecutor, International Criminal Court at The Hague, along with direct contact battling jihadists during operation Iraqi Freedom lends insight into this important geopolitical issue.

A must-have for anyone who wants to better understand the conflict that exists in the middle east, this well-researched and fully annotated volume is invaluable in revealing how this new brand of terrorism poses a very real threat to Americans and the world at large. It also serves as a guide to what we as individuals—and as a nation—can do to stop this escalating violence, prevent jihad, and protect Israel and America from this imminent threat.


  • BS

    By SaraaaaaaG
    This book is not based on any facts. I bought this book to read for my research paper about ISIS and all he’s talking about is life of Jews and Christians!!!! he’s comparing Hamas to ISIS and saying that Jews are dying from Hamas’ attacks everyday!!! Clearly this author is either the most ignorant person in the whole world or he’s covering his eyes from noticing what is really going on in Gaza. As far as I know Israelis were the ones who invaded palestine and are bombing and killing innocent people and throwing them out from their own country every day. This book is written by Natanyahu.
  • Biased to the Point of Irrelevancy

    Despite having "ISIS" in the title, this book is actually about Hamas. It is full of emotionally-charged arguments, not based on fact. Thank goodness this book was short, because I don't think that I could have dealt with the author's crap for any longer.
  • Excellent book!!!

  • Looks good

    By Sgtjbd
    This book from what I have read so far does look good enough to purchase. The only possible problem from some of the reviews I've read is a lack of information about the different terrorist groups and that's part of the reason I want to read it. By the way good job with information to provide people into the real threat so we understand more. 👍
