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.

In this expanded edition, Jay tracks the most recent events in the war against ISIS, exposes new dangers, and provides a detailed plan to defeat ISIS and prevent genocide against Christians in the Middle East. ISIS is still growing, and its reach-as Jay predicted in the first edition-is extending across the globe.

Includes a link to an exclusive track from the Jay Sekulow Band, "Where I Stand," a moving tribute to the persecuted Christians in Iraq.

This book: We will talk about how ISIS emerged and became a threat
Also this book: *proceeds to have more chapters about Hamas and Israel rather than ISIS itself*

The book starts out promising, but is disorganized and never shows how Hammas and other terrorist organizations may have fed into ISIS. In the end, it appears to be different short papers tied together in order to take advantage of a trending topic. Read it for the information about terrorism, but don't expect that it tells you how ISIS "rises". The "laws of war" could be a topic onto itself, and, I have seen other descriptions of it in books written by soldiers themselves. The book does cover some of them successfully.

This book is more about Hamas than Isis.
