VIDEO - Top US security officials toured Ben Gurion Airport on Monday where they were given a detailed briefing on Israeli tactics used to secure the site. Their visit has been organized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and activities will "focus on counter-terrorism," the ADL said. "What we've seen so far has been very, very impressive," Lester Fultz, Deputy Chief of Ohio Police Special Operations division told Ynetnews. "There's a lot of ways to learn - you can do the heavy lifting yourself, or you can learn from some other people's experiences - and that's what we're really doing here... some of this is very new to us as Americans, but the Israelis have done this and are very good at it," he added. Anthony Perillo, Deputy Chief of Newark Police, described security procedures at Ben Gurion as "hi-tech and hi-speed." Perillo, who is also a communications officer for Homeland Security, added: "We all have to be vigilant, that's the bottom line... I think if we all stick together and learn together, we can advance, and hopefully we won't have any more terrorist attacks." "The level of threat here is perceived to be higher and more difficult, so they really begin their security, as we've just seen, a lot earlier than we do in American airports," Fultz noted. Asked of his impressions of Israel, Fultz said that the media "does not always display the problem as it really is," and adding that he found "a beautiful country and a beautiful people" in Israel. In addition to touring the airport, the law-enforcement officials will also learn from their Israeli counterparts how Israel treats mass casualty incidents, performs rescue operations and establishes command and control centers after terror attacks.
