President Obama has given Iran until September 15 to agree to talks with the West over its nuclear weapons program.
If Iran refuses, it could move the Middle East one step closer to another war.
U.S. and U.N. officials say Iran is fast approaching the capability to make a nuclear bomb.
The clock is clearly ticking and the Obama administration's push for better relations with the Iranian regime has, so far, failed to make gains.
And most observers are not optimistic that Iran will play ball.
"They'll exploit any time you give them to get them closer to the nuclear finishing line," said Israel's former Ambassador to the U.N., Dore Gold. "And then we'll be in a whole different world."
While the West seems hesitant, even confused, about how to deal with Iran, the Islamic Republic and its allies appear supremely confident about their mission. There is a growing number of Muslims in the Middle East, however, who do not agree with the radicals--and they're beginning to speak out.
"Are you Jewish, are you Muslim or are you Christian?" asked Moroccan Parliament Member Fehida Layadi. "I don't care about it. I hope that one day, I will see an Iraqi, a Saudi or an Iranian look at it the same way."
Another group has joined these reformers in challenging radical Islam. Raised Muslim, they are turning to Christ in record numbers--and sharing the gospel at great personal risk.
"Islam is not the answer," said Father Zakaria Botros. "Jihad is not the way. Jesus is the way, Jesus is the truth and Jesus is the life!"
Author Joel Rosenberg's new DVD Inside the Revolution goes into the heart of the Middle East-- where he says radicals, reformers and revivalists are battling for the soul of the region.
