How to Mitigate and Overcome Violent Crime & Terrorism Threats
Our approach to better cope with concerns in Homeland Security
The State of Israel and her citizens have unfortunately been forced to cope with various security problems for many years. As a result of this need, we have had to develop unique security concepts, up-to-date security methods, modern security techniques, sophisticated tactics, and efficient instruction methods, in order to successfully deal with the different tasks which, confront us in the various Governmental and the Civilian sectors.
We give priority to the qualification and involvement of our entire population in the struggle against violent crime or terrorism; we do not consider it only Law Enforcement’s concern.
Our method of preparation for this struggle resembles a vaccine against viruses. A vaccine is a weakened form of a disease-causing microbe that causes the immune system to strengthen without damaging it, hence developing immunity against the disease.
Our experience has shown that a person in a strong mental and physical condition is more self-confident, functions and copes much better in highly stressful situations caused by crisis and violence.
Self-confidence improves the participant’s character and behavior in their family, their awareness and desire to contribute, to be more involved and to influence the quality of life in the entire society. The lack of self-confidence turns people into aggressors or potential victims, who look and behave accordingly.
Israel’s secret weapon is, and always will be, our entire society’s strength; and more precisely, the education, training and preparation of Israelis. This has defeated and mitigated violent crime and terrorism bringing about a robust economy with high living standards for our entire population.
My dear friends from all walks of life, hope and faith are extremely helpful in overcoming crisis, but the real solution to defeating street crime, terror and insecurity is to support your leaders and law enforcement and take action by improving your own inner strength and physical abilities to struggle against the “evils” that try to terrorize your life on a daily basis.
