Israel to face ‘revolutionary Isamists,’ ‘crisis of stupendous proportions,’ with no help from US

Joanne Hill -TORONTO – “Israel is about to face “a crisis of stupendous proportions” as Islamists gain power in Egypt, Turkey and Syria and it will not be able to rely on America for help, warned Professor Barry Rubin, Middle East political analyst and director of the Gloria Center.

Rubin addressed the topic, Turmoil in the Middle East: What is Really Happening, last week at a luncheon lecture hosted by the Speakers Action Group, Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem. He described recent events in Arab and Muslim countries – including key elements that he said have been ignored or whitewashed by America’s leaders and media – and predicted a long struggle which will eventually be won against what he called “revolutionary Islamists.”
