It was the deadliest terror campaign ever mounted against a nation in modern times- the al-Aqsa, or Second, Intifada. This is the untold story of how Israel fought back with an elite force of undercover operatives, drawn from the nation's diverse backgrounds and ethnicities-and united in their ability to walk among the enemy as no one else dared.
