A Fact Finding Expedition to Israel

and intelligence


Tom Trento & Ron Wexler

On this fact Finding Expedition we will explore the swirl of issues surrounding the 4 hotspots of Israel: The Gaza Strip - Hamas, The Lebanon border - Hizbollah, The Syrian frontier - Islamist radical rebels and East Jerusalem - a ticking bomb? There will be a special emphasis on the recent unrest in the Gaza region. In-depth visits around the Gaza Strip were added where experts will provide us with all the available analysis and lessons learned.

We will briefly spend time in Tel Aviv, but mostly we will focus on the hot spots and Jerusalem. In addition to Ron and Tom analysis throughout the trip, you will hear explanations by some of Israel's best guides and lectures by top experts, including policymakers, business leaders, journalists, academics, security & defense experts, and IDF officers.

U.S.- Israel relations, Iran, Hamas, Hesbollah, Radical Islamists and the regional turmoil are not only critical to Israel's welfare and survival, but also to the entire Western Society. We will hear how does the Jewish state and the West deal with the issue of security and defense?

In our visit to Jerusalem we will focus on the status of Jerusalem and the region's security & defense with some of the most acclaimed experts and teachers.

The expedition will include sites that are not featured on any trips to Israel and require security clearance. We will also visit many of the biblical sites in Judea, Samaria and the Galilee. Some of the sites: Garden of Gethsemane, Temple Mount (Southern steps), Mount Carmel (Elijah contest with the Baal priests), Mount of Beatitudes, Sea of Galilee (on board a cruise), Garden Tomb (Calvary), Mount of Zion (Upper Room)
