Two days subsequent to an illustrious sermon in the Great Al Omari Mosque in Gaza, following a suicide bombing at the heart of Tel-Aviv, Abu Musa doesn┐t return home. The notorious Hamas leader, the mastermind behind the terror campaign, breaks out of Gaza. Subsequently, he acquires advanced training in Sudan, travels to Germany where he plots terror acts, sneaks out to Canada, then slips into the US where he conspires to bomb the St. Patrick Cathedral in New York City during a Papal visit. His expedition is decked out with dead bodies all the way through. Arik, recruited under duress to the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, tries to pin down Abu Musa and his coupled terror network. Arik knows and despises Abu Musa from his days at the Israeli Military Intelligence Unit. He infiltrates the Islamic Terror Network in the US under the alias Qassam al-Nassr, whereas the FBI and the police are at the back of his trail. Partnership between Abu Musa and Arik develops into rivalry; their women are sucked in as their relationship plays over a crescendo that smashes into open hostility; it blows up just ahead of the violent conclusion.
