This time Dr. Bob welcomes Brig. Gen. (Res.) Amir Avivi, the founder and chairman of IDSF. During his service, Amir held a series of senior roles in the IDF, including Deputy Comptroller of the Security Forces, Director of the Office of the Chief of Staff, Deputy Commander of the Gaza Division, Commander of the Sagi Division, Commander of Batallion 605 and Commander of the School of Combat Engineering.
Amir’s organization, IDSF, is a group of 16,000 reserve officers and operatives from all branches of the Israeli security forces dedicated to guiding the narrative of Israel’s national security needs and ensuring that Israel’s security in the homeland of the Jewish people is never taken for granted.
At the core of IDSF lies the belief that Israel’s security must be anchored in its ability to protect itself, by itself, while actively thwarting threats to its safety. The authoritative voices of well-known military veterans, media personalities and national security experts, are key in disseminating our security strategy for the State of Israel.
The movement welcomes all those who identify with the message and founding principles, without prejudice to religion, race, gender or rank.
