PLYMOUTH, Mass. — With anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism running rampant the world over, the release of the audio version of The Last Aliyahbrings a timely and biting commentary on the dangers facing Jews and the possibility they will not be allowed to return to their homeland, Israel.
My novel gained praise from Chosen People Ministries, Shalom International, Jewish Jewels, the AFA (American Family Association) Journal and others in the Christian world when Elk Lake Publishing released it in 2020.
“Hear The Last Aliyahdramatically read by John Tanner, available on audio book from Audible,” Elk Lake Publishing announced. “Experience the emotions of nuclear fusion developer Omri Zohn and cloaking expert Ethan Rosenbaum as they realize they must leave the U.S. now or forever be trapped away from their much-loved Israel. Race against time with them as a group of Jews try to get home to Israel without being stopped by Homeland Security agents hunting them.”
In The Last Aliyah the United Nations votes to halt all Jewish immigration to the Holy Land, and America and most other countries around the world acquiesce.
“Evidence is everywhere that this story may play out in reality,” said Leslie, the author of a dozen books of fiction and non-fiction. “Just recently, on May 24, the Wall Street Journalnoted ‘the inescapable sense one gets from the recent rash of (anti-Semitic) assaults that have unfolded in New York, Los Angeles, Florida and elsewhere’ and that ‘outbreaks of anti-Semitism can be a harbinger of something more pervasive.’”
Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) veterans have even been hired to protect Jewish communities in Los Angeles as hate crimes against Jews continue to exceed attacks against all other minorities, proportionately. According to 2018 FBI data, Jews are 2.7 times more likely to be hate-crime victims than blacks and 2.2 times more likely than Muslims.
Chosen People Ministries Vice President Mitch Forman calledThe Last Aliyah“one of the most intriguing stories written about the plight of the Jewish people in the end times…. A must read for Christians who stand with Israel.”
The late Neil Lash, co-founder of Jewish Jewels, called The Last Aliyah “a compelling, fast-moving and timely story, and unfortunately begins with a very scary, but very plausible scenario.”
Frank Eiklor, founder of Shalom International, declared, “This could turn out to be a definitive book, from the shame of replacement theology to the Christian involvement in the rescue of the Jews.”
