The Rise of Nuclear Iran
How Tehran Defies the West

Diplomatic engagement with Iran, Dore Gold, Israel's former ambassador to the United Nations and author of the New York Times bestseller Hatred's Kingdom warns, has never worked. Iran has pursued its nuclear ambitions at first in secret and then in defiance of the United Nations and Western protests--and it will not be stopped by Western diplomats waving olive branches and offering promises of aid or threats of sanctions. In The Rise of Nuclear Iran: How Tehran Defies the West, you'll learn:

  • Why a nuclear Iran could lead to a "terrorist bomb"

  • Why the Arab world, as much as Israel, fears a nuclear Iran

  • How Iran takes advant age of Western diplomacy

  • The radical theology of the current Iranian regime--and its apocalyptic goals

  • Alarming and compelling, The Rise of Nuclear Iran: How Tehran Defies the West, confronts us with the most important foreign policy question of our time: will Iran be allowed to become a nuclear power--and at what cost?

Isfahan was known by Western intelligence agencies to be precisely where the Iranians had erected a facility for completing the second important stage in the production of fuel for their clandestine nuclear weapons program...
