Iran's Final Solution for Israel: The Legacy of Jihad and Shi'ite Islamic Jew-Hatred in Iran

In the second hour Chuck is joined by Andrew Bostom, author of the new book: Iran's Final Solution for Israel: The Legacy of Jihad and Shi'ite Islamic Jew-Hatred in Iran.
Synopsis:

Dr. Andrew Bostom presents yet another superb compendium of scholarly evidence drawn from primary sources, some translated for the first time here, to document how Jew-hatred is every bit as intrinsic to the Shi'ite legal tradition as to Sunni Islamic jurisprudence as well as practice.

While much counterterrorism effort has been directed towards Sunni jihad groups, like al-Qa'eda, for some reason Iran, Hizballah, and the rest of the Shi'ite jihadis have escaped the same kind of focus. No matter that Iran's revolutionary leadership, from the Ayatollah Khomeini and his mentors to current regime figures like the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, were steeped in lethal antisemitism over the many decades of their theological formation.

What Dr. Bostom explains in this latest of his extensively researched works is how that Islamic antisemitism is every bit as much a legacy of Shi'ite jurisprudence as its Sunni counterpart. This book traces the history of that doctrine through the bloody centuries of Shi'ite jihad. It is intensely difficult but essential reading.
