Global jihad - Identifying and confronting suspicious signs and early indicators

During the last decade “Global jihad” terrorism has become the biggest terrorist threat in the international arena. Different elements of the “Global Jihad” were responsible for many spectacular terrorist attacks among them the Madrid, London, Istanbul ,Bali, Mombassa and above all the 9/11 attacks in new York and Washington. One of the striking facts of the operational activity of “Global Jihad” in the west is the involvement of west-born members of the different Islamic communities within it. Muslim individuals who were born, raised and educated in the west and in most cases possess western passports were involved in these attacks as planners ,executers ,logistical supporters and even as suicide bombers.

Only a small percentage of the Muslim community members are involved in “Global Jihad” activity and the sole purpose of this course is to provide the relevant law enforcement personnel with the necessary tools to spot these individuals and to equip them with efficient methods to confront and handle their activity. Most of the course includes exercises, simulations and field assignments in order to improve the ability of its participants to deal with common daily situations and confront the Global Jihad threats more efficiently.
