At the age of 18, Beverly Hills native Aaron Cohen left his life of comfort to prove himself in the crucible of the armed forces - and not just any armed forces. He was determined to be a part of Israel's most elite security forces - the equivalent of our the US Navy SEALS and UK SAS. He was offered the only post a non-Israeli can hold: in a top-secret, highly controversial unit which dispatches operatives disguised as Arabs into the Palestinian-controlled West Bank to abduct Hamas leaders and bring them to Israel for trial.Between 1997 and 2000, Aaron Cohen would learn flawless Hebrew and conversational Arabic, lose any semblance of his all-American-90210 appearance, and participate in over 200 life or death missions, including: disguised as a Palestinian guest, he and his team crash the wedding of a Hamas leader's daughter, wrestle the enemy to the ground and steal him away for trial; posing as an American journalist to set a trap for one of the financiers behind the Dizengoff Massacre, taking him down in a brutal, hand-to-hand fight; and, pulling the dead and dying from the rubble of a shopping mall, the target of a suicide bomber who detonated a nail bomb.
