On October 9, 2013, The Knights for Israel at the University of Central Florida hosted a CCAP student event featuring distinguished, world-renowned expert on terrorism Dr. Anat Berko.
Dr. Anat Berko’s research focuses on suicide bombers as well as their handlers. She is a member of Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Team and Israel’s National Security Council, and serves as an advisor to government officials. Dr Berko, the author of The Path to Paradise: The Inner World of Suicide Bombers and Their Dispatchers, holds a Ph.D. in Criminology from Bar-Ilan University.
Dr. Berko’s lecture was entitled “The Smarter Bomb: Women and Children as Suicide Bombers”. Part of the goal for the event was to spark interest in fellow students to join the Knights for Israel. Ari Hoffman of the Knights for Israel said that, “Aside from the wonderful presentations, the Q & A part of the event was phenomenal because it allowed everyone in the crowd to really ask interesting questions to someone who was able to give them first hand experience answers.” Some 30-40 people attended the event at UCF.
