Iran Nuclear Terror Threat In Chilling Nuclear Terrorism Book, ’King of Bombs’


Nuclear terrorism novel, “King of Bombs,” blending fact with fiction, describes a future post- 9/11 attack on the United States orchestrated by Iran and Al-Qaeda.

A recent reviewer of “King of Bombs” posted the following description on “This book is not for the faint of heart.” Described by other reviewers as “Chilling, terrifying, scary,” the controversial nuclear terrorism novel describes a future terrorist attack that could conceivably destroy the United States as a functioning nation. As though ripped from today’s headlines, the author, Sheldon Filger, writes of a covert Iranian plot involving nuclear weapons, secretive cooperation with North Korea and international terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda. In frightening detail, Mr. Filger confronts the reader with a chilling possibility: a terrorist group determined to detonate a large-yield nuclear device in a major American city, with covert assistance from radical elements in the Iranian government.

Could Iran cooperate with terrorists in a nuclear 9/11 attack on the United States? The author of “King of Bombs” believes that this is possible, and not just a plot for a thriller. “The Iranian government is clearly very interested in nuclear technology to an extent that has much of the world questioning their ultimate motivations,” Filger said. “Add to that, an implacable hostility towards the Western world in general, and the United States in particular, combined with known links to international terrorism, and you have a mixture that is decidedly toxic in the early part of the twenty-first century,” he added.

The United States does view Iran, as well as North Korea, as potential nuclear threats, which is why it has invested tens of billions of dollars in missile defense. The Pentagon believes that Iran and North Korea are cooperating in developing ballistic missiles that can threaten the United States with a nuclear strike and that a missile shield would protect America from such danger. However, “King of Bombs” provides a vastly different scenario, in which Iran and North Korea make use of Al-Qaeda as the means to deliver a nuclear bomb to an American city.(

Though “King of Bombs” is a chilling nuclear terrorism novel, many experts believe that the possibility that countries like Iran could covertly transfer nuclear weapons to terrorist groups cannot be discounted. It has long been pointed out that movements such as Al-Qaeda could smuggle nuclear weapons through the porous borders of the United States in a multitude of ways, including trucks, trains and among the millions of shipping containers that enter American ports each year, in the vast majority of instances without inspection. Having a terrorist organization serve as the delivery means for a nuclear strike has obvious attractions to a country like Iran: if they don’t take public credit for a nuclear attack on American soil, then there is no clear address where the United States can retaliate. “By integrating international terrorism into the nuclear weapons equation, the whole premise of nuclear deterance becomes undermined,” according to Mr. Filger. “Should Iran or North Korea provide nuclear weapons to non-state actors, there will be no security for anyone in the twenty-first century,” warned the author of “King of Bombs.”
