Undercover Counterterrorism in Israel

It is not difficult to acknowledge that terrorism issues have special relevance to the state of Israel.

The policing of terrorism in Israel, therefore, presents a special case in the world of counterterrorism. For it can be expected that the nature and development of the state of Israel have brought about strong political characteristics of counterterrorist police work that stand out among comparable law enforcement organizations in other industrialized democratic states.
