Abstract:

The year is 2086. As the result of a Shiite Final Solution, there are no longer any Israelis in the Middle East; indeed there is no one at all in the Middle East. The once-Fertile Crescent is a mass of radioactive slag. But unlike Islam, Israel survives. Sixty thousand miles beyond the Moon floats the space city HAZARA YSROEL. Begun 80 years before, it is now home to six million New Israelis, who for a while believed that they had found peace and prosperity beyond the confines of Earth. But the more things change the more they stay the same. Terrorist acts against HAZARA YSROEL are on the rise. The now-powerful United Nations makes pious noises--and does nothing. Soon the people of New Israel must make yet another desperate choice.
