Summary The Jihad War for Israel. Where Did It Come From, And Where Is It Heading? Holy War for the Promised Land is a fast-paced overview of an ongoing conflict that is crucial to world peace. David Dolan is an expert on the subject, having lived and worked in Israel since 1980. He looks at the historic roots of the conflict and the continuing struggle today, focusing on the central role that Islam plays in it. The author, who has personally covered much of the action, examines the various Arab/Israeli wars, the peace process, and the current Palestinian uprising. He then places this valuable information in the context of unfolding biblical prophecy.
