  20. A very sad day for academia. One door closes, a window opens. Some things change for the good & some for the bad…but change is always there.

  21. Another great voice for Israel taken away from us too early. A tremendous loss for Israel and the Jewish people.

  22. What a great loss. A superb commentator who provided so many with realistic views on Israel, it's status in it's immediate neighborhood and in the world in general. I will miss his him.

  23. I feel as though I am losing a brilliant friend who articulated a clear and rational prospective to the Middle East. I knew I could always get the real story from Dr. Barry Rubin. And he answered my emails! I will miss his daily blogs. I looked forward to them every day.

  28. Yehi Zichro Baruch. I knew Barry since the 70s when we were in the Jewish student movement. He wrote some important studies on Turkey, Iran, Arab oil producing nations, and Muslim fundamentalism. he will be remebered and missed.

  29. I must state I know this man to be a great voice for Israel but I didn't know him well. I feel he will be greatly missed and 64 by today's standards is a young age to go. He would have had so much more to give to Israel and the world in general. May he be at peace alleviated of pain and shine eternally amidst the lights of the universe. His energy will endure.

  30. I shall miss his columns – he shone an honest light on all that is around us.BDE

  31. Barry's writings were a breath of fresh air and reality in a world that has lost its way. He will be sorely missed at this critical juncture threatening Israel's existence. My sincerest condolences to his family

  32. I am very sad. This is a terrible loss for us all. Jews and Israeli's and other folks who respect truth and realism will now hope for a voice as clear and accurate and a heart as courageous to speak out and defend Israel from all her enemies , both inside and outside the "TENT".

  33. Shocking and Very Sad news. We lost a Great man, my condolences to his family. RIP dear Barry!!

  34. I have been following Barry Rubin's writings ever since I saw him on Shalom TV. His passing is a tremendous loss to the defenders of Eretz Yisroel.
