National Guard leaders visited Israel last week to forge a new relationship with that country’s Home Front Command – to help keep both countries safe.
Lt. Gen. H Steven Blum, chief of the National Guard Bureau, led a 25-member delegation to Israel that included two state adjutants general.
The six-day visit ended Nov. 22 when Blum and Maj. Gen. Yitzshak (Jerry) Gershon, Israel’s Home Front commander, signed two letters proposing to exchange ideas, to train in each other’s country and to expand their expertise about responding to natural disasters and terrorist attacks.

"It was invaluable; you can't put a price on it," said Sgt. Jim Gort. "Everyone we talked to had at least two or three real-life scenarios. They would say, here is what happened, the response, and how we mitigated the circumstances."
Training topics included stopping and confronting a suicide bomber, VIP security, and protecting critical infrastructures.

Come on jakomo... this is so far below what you usually post. We disagreed often over the years but you've always been well spoken and intelligent.

Common cooperation is hardly "the zionification of America" as you well know and I'm completely stumped as to why in the world you've chosen to write it like this.
