NEW YORK, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the entire nation joins Boston in mourning three deaths and massive injuries and amputations, Americans are once again facing the reality of homeland terrorism and resurrecting questions of security. David Rubin, Israeli terrorism expert, draws parallels between Boston and Israel, a nation plagued by long-term terrorism.
Rubin, an expert political analyst on Israel and the Middle East, and frequent commentator on national and international radio and television programs, explores unique questions of how Israel would react to a similar incident. How would Israel find the terrorists? What would it do to prevent future attacks? And how would Israel address the trauma of the victims and fears of the general public?
"Realistic fear is certainly understandable," said Rubin, who himself is a victim of terrorism. "But Israelis are a resilient people who will not cower under the threat of terrorism. Realistic fear has led to realistic precautions in Israel, and can in America as well."
On April 15 about 2:50 p.m., two bombs exploded 12 seconds apart near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 180. Experts are reconstructing the bombs from fragments spread over a large crime scene. No suspect has yet been arrested.
Rubin provides close-up knowledge of the psychology of terrorism. Wounded in a terrorist attack, along with his three-year-old son, he has gained extensive professional knowledge in establishing treatment programs for other children who have been traumatized by terrorism.
His groundbreaking book, "The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama," boldly exposes the Islamic threat to Israel, America and Judeo-Christian civilization. His latest book, "Peace for Peace" provides biblical and historical insight into the consistent failures of the Middle East peace process.
Rubin understands the fears many are experiencing in Boston and across America.
"In Israeli communities, where people have suffered a disproportionate number of shooting attacks, terrorist infiltrations and bombings, average citizens chose defensive responses over fear of terror attacks. They felt enabled to go on with their daily routines, thereby stealing a portion of victory from the claws of terror gangs," said Rubin.
Rubin is a former mayor and long-time resident of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria, known to much of the world as the West Bank. After he and his son were wounded in a terrorist attack, Rubin established the Shiloh Israel Children's Fund, which focuses on healing the trauma of terror victim children.
Rubin has shared his expertise in interviews with Fox News, CBN, Dennis Miller, Mike Huckabee, Michael Savage and Michael Medved, and has been featured in some of the most respected publications in the world, including The Jerusalem Post, The Washington Times, Israel National News, Jewish Tribune and Charisma Magazine.
