America is fighting a major international war, says threat analyst Kenneth Abramowitz in his new and critically acclaimed book. The country does not really know how much it is under siege. Moreover, says the author, the war is being waged on a multitude of distinct fronts—both internal and external. Yet, the United States is wholly unprepared to fight a unified battle. How bad are the threats? Can America stand up to them? Author Abramowitz, top security analyst Walid Phares, and international terrorism expert Erick Stakelbeck join Edwin to drill in. 

How will the COVID-19 pandemic change our world—especially in the context of worship communities? Alex Traiman in Jerusalem, managing editor of JNS and Erick Stakelbeck in Washington, DC, host of The Watchman join Edwin for the first of many explorations of this question—and then opened the floor to questions.
