Islamic State: The Coming Storm is a critical analysis of the missteps made by the United States and Western Europe in managing and carrying out the war against radical Islam and the ramifications of our nations failure to act in a more forceful manner against this threat. An understanding of our enemy is crucial to the development of a coherent policy to eradicate the threat posed by global jihadists, including the members of the Islamic State. In fighting this new war, the United States must align itself with Russia and its former republics. Difficult choices will need to be made to combat an enemy focused on spreading terror and destabilizing governments in the Middle East and Europe. Unless the United States and its allies look to the historical causes of this conflict, understand and analyze the cultural and religious divide, and root out the genocidal practices of Islamic militants, the world will continually suffer horrific attacks at the hands of these groups. Simply put, terror will be the new norm.

Ron Rhodes, a leading scholar on biblical prophecy, reveals how looming tensions over oil factor into end-time global alignments and how they may lead to a dramatic shift in the balance of power in the world. Much of the world's oil is in the custody of unstable and sometimes hostile regimes. Nations around the world are positioning themselves to protect their shrinking piece of the pie of dwindling oil reserves. Global tensions continue to rise. In The Coming Oil Storm Rhodes documents the role of Islam as the religion in control of most of the world's oil reserves and shows convincingly that once Muslims are in possession of the two swords of oil and nuclear weapons, they will feel empowered to act as they wish. Oil could even play a role in the path to Armageddon. The Coming Oil Storm is an essential guide for understanding the state of the world today...and what's yet to come.

The nature of the relationship between Syria and Saudi Arabia during the oil era poses many questions for the commentators and analysts of inter-Arab politics during this period. Why have these two states pursued mutually conflicting aims in almost every major regional or international foreign policy issue? Why, over the course of the past thirty years, have they often propagated contrasting ideological banners while both acting as though some form of an alignment existed between them? Here Sonoko Sunayama explores the apparent paradox behind this longstanding relationship and argues that what ultimately makes Saudis and Syrians so indispensable to each other is the perception and the historical appeal of 'shared identities', be they Arabism or Islam.
