On this week's edition of the Stakelbeck on Terror show, CBN News examines the growing strength of global jihad and the possibility of a new Islamic caliphate.
We start by exploring the Obama administration's recent statements that al Qaeda is nearing defeat. While al Qaeda may be weakening, other more dangerous threats to America's national security are strengthening -- namely Iran, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. See why the U.S. should be concerned.
CBN News also heads to Istanbul, Turkey for a report on how the so-called "Arab Spring" has laid the groundwork for a re-established Islamic super state known as the caliphate.
We then analyze how Iran is vying to lead the new caliphate.
Also watch as Jeremy Issacharoff, a leading Iran expert in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, discussed the Iranian regime's alarming progress in developing nuclear weapons.
