THE COURSE AND ITINERARY
Take your studies beyond the classroom and understand the scope of terrorist attacks launched in the US post-September 11, the growing threat of the use of unconventional weapons, and the spread of radical-Islamic terrorism. Learn how all these have transformed the once localized threat of terrorism into an international problem, and how policy makers are facing the challenge of balancing freedom and security.
By meeting with policy makers, Israeli Defense Force (IDF) officers, and leading scholars in the field of counter terrorism, you will be given the opportunity to analyze the current terrorism threats faced by Israel and the world, and learn, through a combination of lectures and field trips, from the extensive Israeli experience.
- Tour strategic points throughout Israel, such as borders with Gaza, Lebanon, and Syria.
- Seminars and discussions with leading experts in the field of counter-terrorism.
- Visit an IDF counter-terror unit on their training base.
- Encounter Islamic scholars and understand how they view the true Islam in face of its rising association with violence around the world.
- Enjoy Masada, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and all the highlights of the classic Birthright Israel program!
