On September 11th Joel C. Rosenberg and Lt.-General (ret.) Jerry Boykin, former commander of Delta Force, will host the simulcast of a national town hall meeting being held to discuss security threats to the United States and the future of Israel.

Rosenberg is the New York Times best-selling author of The Last Jihad, The Last Days, The Ezekiel Option, The Copper Scroll, Epicenter: How the Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your World, Dead Heat, and Inside the Revolution with more than two million copies in print.
