U.S. Counter-Terror Experts Visit Israel


idf-tankTen senior U.S. counter-terrorism experts are visiting Israel through Project Interchange, an educational institute of the American Jewish Committee. Commander Richard Webb of the Los Angeles Police Department said, “The Israelis are considered world leaders and innovators in counter-terrorism and security….Equally as important, they do their duties while vigilantly protecting human rights….I observed several new techniques for security operations including multi-level security measures at an international airport.”

Assistant Chief Russell E. Hamill of the Montgomery County [MD] Police Department said, “This has been some of the most meaningful training I’ve ever attended….The Israeli people…refuse to be terrorized. In the battle against terrorism, that’s how you win and the Israelis are winning. They are not victims but survivors.”
