"Terrorism in Israel"

Naday Morage, PHD
Associate Professor
Chair of the Department of Security Studies
Sam Houston State University

Since its creation in 1948, Israel has had to cope with ongoing periods of terrorism punctuated by periods of war. While this has been an unfortunate reality for Israeli citizens, it has enabled the Israeli authorities to develop a wealth of experience in homeland security policies and practices.

This presentation will focus on a range of preventive and response policies followed by Israel in the context of its counterterrorism and homeland defense policies. After a brief discussion of the nature of the terrorism threat facing the country, the presentation then focuses on the legal, organizational and strategic environments that affect Israeli policies before moving to discuss some of Israel’s response policies in the context of the response agencies, medical system and the military’s Homefront Command.
