A U.S.-born Israeli author and terrorism expert is not surprised by a recent poll that shows President Obama's support among Jewish voters is nearly 20 points lower than what it was in 2008.

The recent Investor's Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP poll of 808 registered voters surveyed September 4-9 shows that President Obama's support among Jewish voters has dropped from 78 percent in 2008 to 59 percent today. He still holds an overall lead of 46-44 over Mitt Romney.

Rubin, DavidDavid Rubin is the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh and author of The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama. He says Obama's foreign policy mistakes will affect more than just the Jewish vote.

"It's going to affect the Americans with pride vote -- any Americans who have pride and are not prepared to grovel before these Islamic terrorists," Rubin asserts, adding that "they are terrorists."

And based on the president's handling of recent events in the Middle East, Rubin is convinced that the re-election of Obama would mean serious consequences for the world.

"I do feel very strongly that President Obama is a danger, not just to the state of Israel, and not just to the relationship between the United States and Israel, but he is danger to Judeo-Christian civilization," the author asserts. "I have absolutely no doubt about that."

He concludes that the election of a new American president would be in the best interest of Israel and the United States.
