    Looking briefly at this, the “news” seems to be that Rubin admitted to what the government charged (and Krugel admitted), i.e, they planned to blow up the mosque and Issa’s office. I think few people, other than Irv’s wife, thought otherwise.

    One People, Two Worlds

    As I read with interest Gary Rosenblatt's review of "One People, Two Worlds" ("Closed Chapter," Nov. 8), my gut reaction was one of disappointment and frustration to Rabbi Yosef Reinman's decision to cancel the book tour. But upon reflection, I began to...

    Kelly Rubin will turn 13 on Nov. 20. His bar mitzvah, already postponed to December, is now on hold as his father, Irv Rubin, lies in critical condition at L.A. County-USC Medical Center.

    Irv Rubin

    Jewish organizations had a field day denouncing Irv Rubin and his Jewish Defense League. All claimed he had no support in the Jewish community anywhere.

    Rubin is innocent unless proven guilty at trial.

    It is difficult to believe that this intelligent, articulate Jewish...

    In the solar system of Jewish life, Irv Rubin is Pluto.

    The man accused of conspiring to plant a pipe bomb at a mosque and at the office of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-48) has long operated at the distant edges of greater Los Angeles' Jewish population that numbers some 600,000.
