Share Article

Security Solutions International (SSI) will offer the first of many scheduled training sessions in the Seattle area. In partnership with the Port of Seattle PD, Threat of Islamic Jihadists to the World will be held at the Washington State Criminal Justice Commission in Seattle on May 22nd & 23rd.

The Threat of Islamic Jihadists to the World is unique training course that has been expertly designed to bring world-class counter-terrorism training to First Responders and federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies across the country. The sessions will feature Ebrahim Ashabi, one of America's foremost experts on radical Islam and anti-terror security practices.

Participants in this insightful, packed two-day program are taken through the formative phases of the Islamic religion, gaining an understanding of its different branches and ideologies. This foundation will serve to create a greater awareness of the role of extremism in radical Islam.

Key topics of exploration of Muslim culture include:

  •     Where does the hatred come from?
  •     Arab naming conventions
  •     Jihad and Jihadi culture
  •     The Five Pillars of Islam
  •     Ramadan
  •     International and Domestic terror groups

As SSI President Henry Morgenstern explains, "a working knowledge of these crucial topics can help law enforcement agencies build strong, cooperative relationships with Islamic communities across the USA. These relationships can aid greatly in the detection of Islamic terror threats."

The workshop will also include hands-on activities related to recognizing suicide bombers, planning and adjusting threat response protocols, detection of fake IDs and other falsified documentation, and the basics of Islamic terror tools such as IEDs.

About Ebrahim Ashabi

Ebrahim Ashabi left Iran in 1982 after having survived the Iran Revolution and the war with Iraq. After spending time in Europe, he was able to finally reach New York and lived there and in Washington until joining the Long Beach Police Department in 1997. In 2005, Ebrahim joined the Long Beach Police Department's Office of Counter Terrorism, responsible for collecting, analyzing, and investigating criminal intelligence related to international and domestic terrorism, organized crime, and extremist activity.

While working closely with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, Ebrahim was able to share his real-world knowledge of Islamic culture and to put it into a US context as an asset to a wide range of law enforcement and security professionals.
