Eagles For Israel, the Emet for Israel student group at Boston College, organized a successful event where Anat Berko, author of The Smarter Bomb: Women and Children as Suicide Bombers, was invited to speak about her personal conversations with women and children who have attempted to become suicide bombers.
Berko was able to connect with a diverse audience of about 40 students by discussing the sociological and psychological issues associated with terrorism. CCAP representative, Sonia Iosim, stated that “Dr. Berko gave a very interesting presentation on the psychological and cultural influences on women and children who become suicide bombers. There was a great turnout and I think that everyone who attended was able to learn something new and shocking about the inner workings of terrorism.”
The student group managed to establish connections with other groups on campus as well as provide an evening of insightful conversation for all those who attended.
Later in the semester, the student group organized a Krav Maga event to teach students the Israeli martial art and attract a broad audience. Great job, Eagles For Israel!
