Professor Rubin was a much-respected and prolific scholar and, of course, a doughty champion of Israel's cause. He was an expert on terrorism and Middle East issues, and his outstanding analytical online articles will be much missed.
He leaves behind a number of wonderful, highly informative and greatly recommended publications, some of them available for free (see here)
As I mentioned some months ago, among his output is this book, just released. I have ordered it, and keenly look forward to reading it. It promises to be a must-read.
His untimely passing is a tragic loss for Klal Yisrael.
May his memory be a blessing.
Baruch Dayan Emet.
He put up a good fight for many years.ReplyDelete

I awoke this morning completely oblivious to your posting of this terrible news at my site last night. Then, of course, I fired up my computer in order to start reviewing the news and there it was:ReplyDelete
"Scholar and Mideast expert Barry Rubin dies at 64"
I cry as I write this.
I was tearful too.Delete
