Presentation on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as part of the preparatory seminar for German police officers prior to overseas posting in the Palestinian areas under the European security and defense policy





Dear Dr. Natour,


First of all allow me to thank you for your expert contribution to our seminar.


As I have already mentioned to you, your discerning observation of the topic was highly objective. I was very pleased that you were able to convey the conflict in such an objective manner, despite how it has affected you personally. In particular, I would like to emphasize your reference to serious sources.


Your presentation was a valuable addition to the seminar and will be of use to our police officers working in the Palestinian region in future in many respects.



Now that the assessment of the seminar is complete, I am pleased to be able to tell you that all participants were of the unanimous opinion that your presentation was the highlight of the preparatory week.


I hope that you will be able to join us at the next preparatory seminar for the overseas posting of EU police in Palestine.


With best wishes for your future and peace in Israel and Palestine,



Ralph Trefz

Detective Chief Commissioner
and Seminar Leader
