A best-selling author and End Times scholar says he is witnessing real-life events that are paralleling his fictional account of Israel in crisis.
Joel Rosenberg is promoting his latest book, "The Jerusalem Assassin,” the third in a series. The plot centers around an American president, his Middle East peace plan, and the assistance of Saudi Arabia to help broker the deal.
“The book happens to come out at a time just shortly after President Trump really did roll out his peace plan,” the author tells OneNewsNow, “and where the Saudis, and other Gulf States, are actively considering the possibility should they make peace with Israel. It's an interesting question at an interesting time."
Rosenberg, 52, launched his writing career with "The Last Jihad," a New York Times bestseller that published in 2002. He and his family currently live in Israel.
Rosenberg says there is a huge incentive for the Saudis to rethink about what they believe about Israel and Jews, and their right to defend their country.
“Because the Iran threat is so dangerous,” he explains, "it's so existential, not just to Israel but to the Saudis themselves.”
So the Saudis are coming to terms with their “real friends” in the Middle East and reportedly working behind the scenes with Israel intelligence, Rosenberg says.
