Issuing an impassioned clarion call to the Western world on the litany of existential dangers that radical Islam represents to America’s cherished democratic principles, author David Rubin’s meticulously researched monograph reveals that Islam is in actuality a political ideology predicated on a pernicious dogma, rather than the “religion of peace” that its proponents purport it to be.

The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama (Shiloh Israel Press) is an exceptionally well-documented treatise on the gamut of commonalities that are endemic to both Israel and America in terms of religion, politics and culture. Rubin calls on all free peoples, especially Americans, to take serious heed of the escalating dangers that Islam represents in terms of the perpetuation of bellicose actions bent on mass murder or the more insidious and subtle kind of aggression that is manifested by the potential silent incursion of Sharia law into American jurisprudence.  He exhorts both Jews and Christians alike to carefully examine the Judeo-Christian value system that has bound them together for centuries and strongly suggests that they create concrete alliances in order to thwart the nefarious agenda of radical Islam; thus preserving “Western civilization” as we know it.

Rubin speaks with authority as he explains the Islamic concepts of dhimmitude (slave status for all “non-believers”), how the Koran metes out punitive measures against infidels, and outlines the ultimate goal of Islamic global dominance in the form of a Caliphate. Rubin is neither an alarmist nor is he suffering from paranoia and to his credit he does not posit himself as an abstract theoretician or a think-tank denizen. Having studied the Koran, the Bible, as well as plumbing the depths of resources on American history as it pertains to the views of the founding fathers and more recent events, Rubin’s book is replete with a plethora of highly enlightening quotes from these sources that help to state his case.

As a Brooklyn-born American Orthodox Jew who now lives in Israel, he has first hand experience of the travails of Islamic terrorism as he ruefully recalls his victimization and that of his three-year old son, Ruby. In December of 2001, while driving home to Shiloh from Jerusalem, Rubin and his son were both injured in a terrorist attack carried out by Islamic militants. When Rubin arrived at the hospital he was told that he was “the hospital’s 1000th victim of terrorism” and recalls that he was later told by a surgeon that “the bullet which entered the head and traveled through the neck of my three-year old boy missed his brain stem by one millimeter.” Determined to assist others facing similar crises, Rubin founded the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, an organization dedicated to relieving the trauma suffered by child victims of terrorism.

    Osama – oops I mean Obama, should be impeached and put in Gitmo. The crime of describing Israel as a result of the Holocaust before a Saudi Brotherhood Nazi Regime is a dfferent ball game from Nixon's wrongs. It is the Jews' displacement from their land that caused the Holocaust, not the other way around. It is the ficticious Regime states, created 120 years ago in secret, which must be questioned.

    This Pres is no American Christian – he has disgraced the American sacred office. How dare he proclaim genocidal false history of Israel before the Arab Regimes.

      Obama sat in Reverend Wright's church for 20 years listening to Black Liberation Theology. Not only God damn America, but also Israel. And Obama didn't hear any of these sermons? Give me a break. The thing is with his obvious desire to reset relations with Islamic regimes in the MidEast, Iran, Syria don't seem to give Obama much respect at all.

    An Islamic tsunami is coming. Whether Europe can survive is a big question. Their tsunami is in the form of a birth jihad. Soon the aging populations in Europe will become minorities in their own countries. Sharia Law will then be imposed.

    The US need to observe what is taking place in Europe and limit immigration from Islamic countries, just as it needs to control Mexican immigration. However, our Leftists think that by allying themselves with Islamists, they can use these 'useful idiots' to further their agenda. These Leftists do not realize the dedication of these Islamists. They are the "useful idiots."

    One thing the US can not allow is Sharia Law. To short-circuit Sharia Law, here are some possible Constitutional Amendments:

    The beliefs and practices of a religion shall not be restricted, unless such beliefs and practices cause physical harm to its adherents or to citizens of the United States.

    Courts administering physical and/or monetary religious sanctions to an individual, contrary to the Constitution, are forbidden.

    Indoctrination regarding a particular religion for the purpose of conversion in public institutions shall be forbidden.

    Religious practices may be allowed at public functions as long as no one is compelled to participate and as long as these practices are not excessive in natural.

    Public accommodations or restrictions made for one religion, must apply to all religions, when reasonable.

    The US & the West needs to realize, they have something more revolutionary than Islamic Jihad. It is the freedom all individuals enjoy to do whatever they whatever they want to with their lives to give them happiness. Put Freedom and Liberty up against Sharia Law. Which will most men choose?

    ButtSeriously, are you an idiot or just plan ignorant of historical facts? Perhaps both. I am not here to give you a history lesson if you so desire one then I suggest you google it. Israel is an illegal occupier of palestinian land. They came in as gangs to PALESTINE, raped, killed and pillaged with the whole world watching. And now you support that illegal regime that almost daily commits war crimes. And you mention genocide? Tell me ButtS, what do you call what the zionist regime is doing to the palestinians daily. Did you forget or ignore what they did to the palestinians in gaza in 2008 as the world watched silently? Have some respect for the president as least he is better than the previous administration. He has much to do to repair that damage that was done. Geez I am always amazed with the ignorance and hatred people demonstrate when they don't know jack. Might I suggest to you to educate yourself before posting… google can be a wonderful tool.

      Ho hum, uneducated for ignorance is here spouting his Der Sturmer Judeophobic propaganda. Keep it up, you nake barnie look like Einstein, brickhead.

      Noteducated for peace, are you an idiot or just completely ignorant of basic historical facts?

      "Israel is an illegal occupier of palestinian land."

      Wrong, Israel was legally established under International Law on VACANT and TENANT-FREE land LEGALLY PURCHASED by Jews. Israel has completely withdrawn from Gaza and the W. Bank is governed autonomously by the P.A. In fact, the Arabs currently possess over 85% of the Jewish National Homeland.

      "They came in as gangs to PALESTINE, raped, killed and pillaged with the whole world watching."

      You are a liar. When the first Zionists arrived they legally purchased land to build a state. Israel has always tried to make peace with the Arabs. Unfortunately it was the Arabs that rejected the 1948 partition agreement and waged a war of extermination against Israel and the Jews that continues to this day.

      The IDF has policies that value the lives of Palestinians over their own soldiers in an effect minimize any civilian casualties. Unlike Hamas and Hezbollah whose main targets are civilians.

      Also, Israel has never engaged in raping of Palestinians. In fact a paper published in 2007 by anti-Israel researcher Tal Nitzan found that (unlike any other army on earth) there is NO rape of Palestinian women by Israeli Defense Soldiers. I guess you were just hoping no one would call you out on that lie huh?

      "And now you support that illegal regime that almost daily commits war crimes."

      What war crimes? Providing the Palestinians with millions in tons of humanitarian aid? Providing the Palestinians with millions of dollars in economic aid? Providing Palestinians with health access to Israeli hospitals and medical clinics? What about Hamas which to this day sends rockets daily into Israel? What about the PA which daily encourages its children to murder Israelis? The bloodthirsty Palestinians are international criminals and terrorists.

      "And you mention genocide? Tell me ButtS, what do you call what the zionist regime is doing to the palestinians daily."

      On a daily basis Israel provides humanitarian and economic aid to the Palestinians. Israel has never committed genocide against the Palestinians. In fact the Palestinian population has increased exponentially under Israeli rule, increasing by over 84% from 1993-2004 ALONE! Sadly, the Palestinians have been waging a genocidal war against the Jews since the first Arab riots of the 1920's. Did you know that in the past ten years Palestinian terrorists have murdered over 1,500 Israelis including hundreds of children?

      "Did you forget or ignore what they did to the palestinians in gaza in 2008 as the world watched silently?"

      You mean when Israel waged war against Hamas which had been firing thousands of missiles from Gaza into Israeli schools and day cares? Hamas declared they would not stop until they drank the blood of every last Jew (on earth). During that War the vast majority of Palestinians killed were Hamas operatives.

      I am always amazed when someone claims to know the facts and they don't know anything about the history of the conflict. Do us all a favor and try reading a book and educating yourself before posting insipid rhetoric.

      This is a good example of a human who is both anti-Semitic and anti-Palestinian. It believes to its core anything negative about Israel and expects absolutely nothing from the Palestinians. This is an even better example of a very stupid person with lots of loser baggage.

    "Google it." That's your whole problem. Could you actually recommend a respected academic "text" or five that verifies, or at least argues for, what you claim? No, it's just "Google it." It's no wonder you, and so many like you, are so egregiously ill-informed. God knows how many tainted "Wikipedia" entries you've landed on in your "studies," but I'd venture to guess: far too many.

      It's just a vacuous antisemitic troll who belongs in Iran or Saudi Arabia. What a pity he was given his Jewish-invented vaccines as a kid. And so-called peace activists were summed up by Hugh Fitzgerald as thus:

      "We all know, by now, what the phrase "peace activist" means. It does not mean someone who furthers the cause of genuine peace. It means someone who wishes to obtain a false "peace" by appeasement of the most aggressive and hostile forces opposed to everything that is worth preserving in the Western world. That is what a "peace activist" is today."

      It could hardly be summed up better.
