It was the deadliest terror campaign ever mounted against a nation in modern times: the al-Aqsa, or Second, Intifada. This is the untold story of how Israel fought back with an elite force of undercover operatives drawn from the nation's diverse backgrounds and ethnicities - and united in their ability to walk among the enemy as no one else dared.
Beginning in late 2000, as black smoke rose from burning tires and rioters threw rocks in the streets, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Arafat's Palestinian Authority embarked on a strategy of sending their terrorists to slip undetected into Israel's towns and cities to set the country ablaze, unleashing suicide attacks at bus stops, discos, pizzerias - wherever people gathered.
But Israel fielded some of the most capable and cunning special operations forces in the world. The Ya'mas, Israel National Police Border Guard undercover counterterrorist special operations units, became Israel's eyes-on-target response. Launched on intelligence provided by the Shin Bet, indigenous Arabic-speaking Dovrim, or "Speakers", operating in the West Bank, Jerusalem, and Gaza infiltrated the treacherous confines where the terrorists lived hidden in plain sight and set the stage for the intrepid tactical specialists who often found themselves under fire and outnumbered in their effort to apprehend those responsible for the carnage inside Israel. This is their compelling true story: a tale of daring and deception that could happen only in the powder keg of the modern Middle East.

really worth the money and time for any person that have interest in Israel Palestine conflict, counterterrorism, military and special operation. this is the story of the most professional men in the CT undercover world at work
I've been following Israels undercover work.. hooked after listening to the massads capture of Eichman, in Hunting Eichman.. There are just so completely assune.. Great book. But one needs to be interested undercover, courageous, ingenious work...
The story of completely fearless warriors who put it on the line every single day for years on end, for the thin hope of keeping the savages at bay and keeping their families safe.
This is hands down the best book I own, wether in print, kindle or audiobook. THe narrator brings the stories to life. and it is a very revealing glimpse into the life of the world's best military operators.
Decent read if one has an existing interest in the subject but it's written in a shallow, sophomoric manner that will appeal more to young men and boys than anyone else.
