Hamas : politics, charity, and terrorism in the service of jihad by Matthew Levitt( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How is the world to understand and respond to Hamas, the militant Islamist organization that Palestinian voters brought to power in the stunning election of January 2006? This book provides the most complete and fully documented assessment of Hamas ever written. Matthew Levitt, a counterterrorism expert with extensive field experience in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza, draws aside the veil of legitimacy that Hamas hides behind. He presents concrete, detailed evidence from an extensive array of international intelligence materials, including recently declassified CIA, FBI, and Department of Homeland Security reports."

Negotiating under fire : preserving peace talks in the face of terror attacks by Matthew Levitt( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of severe security crises on peace negotiations represents one of the most significant facets of modern conflict resolution theory to remain under-researched. It also stands out as the factor most likely to derail inherently sensitive negotiations. Negotiating under Fire explores how such crises between two nations impact diplomatic initiatives between those countries. How do the negotiators' willingness and ability to continue influence the outcome? Do the levels of legitimacy, trust, and confidence within and between the parties change in such strained negotiations?" "Through a detailed analysis of three critical moments in the Oslo peace process - the Baruch Goldstein Hebron massacre of 1994, the Nachshon Wachsman kidnapping and execution of 1994, and the nine-day string of suicide bus bombings carried out in Israel in March of 1996 - Matthew Levitt concludes that insurgents, or those hostile to peace talks, can and do undermine negotiations."--BOOK JACKET

The money trail : finding, following, and freezing terrorist finances by Matthew Levitt( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While mounting an individual terrorist attack costs relatively little, money remains of critical importance for terrorist organizations. Without it, terrorist groups would be incapable of maintaining the broad infrastructure necessary to run an effective organization. As such, finding means to quickly and securely raise, launder, transfer, store, and gain access to funds remains a top priority for all terrorist groups, from al-Qaeda and its various globally oriented affiliates to regionally focused groups like Hamas and Hizballah. Terrorist finance is also an area of rapid change, as terrorist organizations seek actively to evade governmental scrutiny and take advantage of emerging technologies. The shift in the nature of the global terrorist threat -- from a centralized al-Qaeda to a franchise model -- has had an impact on terrorist financing as well. Until the September 11 attacks, combating terrorist financing was not a strategic priority for the U.S. government. But in the wake of the attacks, the United States dramatically heightened its focus on combating terrorist financing, employing an aggressive, multifaceted response in which it designated and froze the assets of numerous terrorist financiers and support networks, prosecuted individuals and entities for providing material support, and increased its focus on "following the money" as a means of collecting financial intelligence. The U.S. government also made a variety of structural and organizational changes to better address this key concern. The United States was hardly alone in its new focus on terrorist financing: many other countries followed suit. The European Union established terrorist blacklists, among other actions, and a number of the Persian Gulf countries put regulatory regimes in place to govern this arena. The private sector's role -- and its importance -- in the global efforts to combat terrorist financing also increased. While the United States led the international charge on these issues, two international organizations, the United Nations and the Financial Action Task Force, also deserve credit for the scale of the global response since September 11. Despite this progress, a number of obstacles remain, handicapping international efforts to combat terrorist financing

Defeating ideologically inspired violent extremism : a strategy to build strong communities and protect the U.S. homeland by Matthew Levitt( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Islamist extremism poses an immediate threat to U.S. security, but any serious and effective effort to counter the extremist ideology driving groups like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda must be part of a larger strategy to prevent and counter the full range of Islamist and other extremist ideologies posing security threats to the United States. And the reason is not ideological; it is practical and programmatic and has to do with how good-governance and public safety programs actually work on the ground in local communities across the country. Communities are our first line of defense against violent extremism, so empowering and incentivizing communities to become more active in this space is in the local and national interest. The question is how to build a P/CVE architecture that more effectively balances and addresses both national security and community cohesion concerns, builds trust among all stakeholders, confronts all forms of violent extremism threatening communities across the country, and is programmatically sustainable and scalable. This study group suggests a few guiding principles for achieving these goals
