WND senior staff writer Jerome Corsi, the No. 1 best-selling author of “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command,” has a new book out today explaining why a Mideast war is imminent.

But don’t go running to the bookstore to find it.

“Why Israel Can’t Wait: The Coming War Between Israel and Iran” is not that kind of book – at least not yet.

Beginning today, the title is exclusively available as an e-book. If you’ve got a Kindle, you can get it at Amazon right now.
Other e-book formats will soon follow – as well as a more traditional bound book in several weeks.

The reason for the unorthodox release of a book by a best-selling non-fiction author is because of the explosive and timely material it covers.

Corsi recently spent time in Israel meeting with top security officials and came away persuaded that a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities is all but certain – soon.

That’s the urgent message of “Why Israel Can’t Wait.”

Of course, the new Israeli government headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeatedly has declared that a primary foreign policy objective is to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability.

That’s because, as Corsi points out, Israel is a “one-bomb state” – just one nuclear weapon, even a relatively low-yield bomb of the type the United States dropped on Hiroshima or Nagasaki in World War II, would destroy the modern Jewish state as we know it today.

Meanwhile, the Barack Obama administration has repeatedly declared the intention of following up on the campaign promise to negotiate directly with Iran. This represents a fundamental policy shift from the Bush administration’s efforts to apply international sanctions through the United Nations in an effort to force Iran to quit enriching uranium. Consistently, Iran has insisted upon the nation’s right as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty to pursue the “full fuel cycle” – code words, Corsi says, for Iran’s determination to advance uranium enrichment technology in Iran under Iranian control.

In recent months, top Iranian government and military figures have issued warnings that the time is getting short, such that Iran might well have the capability to develop and deliver at least one nuclear weapon by the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010.

At the same time, the international community has expressed doubt that the Iranian government will make any serious concessions on their nuclear program.

In press conferences and speeches, Obama has openly acknowledged the U.S. government now believes Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program.

An Israeli first-strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities becomes increasingly likely to the extent Israel feels isolated from the world community and concludes there is no chance the Obama administration will ever be able to induce Iran to stop enriching uranium, regardless how seriously the president intends to push direct negotiations as a strategy.

“We have already seen two wars launched by Israel against terrorist surrogates financed and supported by Iran: the 2006 war against Hezbollah in Lebanon and the 2008 war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip,” says Corsi. “Now, a war between Israel and Iran is on the near horizon, possibly fated to occur before the end of 2009.”

Corsi is the author of the WND Books release “Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians,” as well as co-author of “Showdown With Nuclear Iran.” Those books have suddenly become more timely than ever.
