Dan Goor is a Physicist, author, and a Political Scientist. Goor believes that there are no legitimately pure left or pure right in politics, they are all, he believes, hybrids. In many ways Goor is very liberal, in others he is quite conservative, his beliefs are based on specific issues, and on specific cases.
As a person who witnessed, participated, and therefor understands terrorist acts first hand, Goor has an in-depth understanding of ideology and religion driven terrorism (which in some cases, based on circumstances, some consider “freedom-fighting.”)
In a theses towards a Masters of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD) Goor explains in some depth the working of religion driven political terrorism, an area that he not only studied, but one in which he has first hand knowledge, Knowledge he acquired prior to Israel’s War of Independence.
In addition to being an inventor with over thirty patents, Dan Goor is a Political Scientist with keen interest in current events. Having transferred technology to a number of “third world” countries, Dan Goor developed an understanding of other cultures, and learned to recognize sensitivities of other people.
His work, his studies, and the environment in which he grew-up, prompted Dan Goor to study the roots of those he fears could have an adverse effects on his world. To that end he studies the Koran, and attended Graduate School at a fundamentalist Christian University. With a Jewish upbringing, Dan Goor has a non-trivial level of understanding of those who follow all Monotheist religions.
Believing that more innocent human life has been lost through the ages in the name of religion (the Holocaust, and Islamic Jihad, to name two of the most significant culprits,) Dan Goor has studied the way various countries deal with the threat of religious driven terror, and as the result, is uniquely aware of the most effective ways to deal with such threats, and the causes for said threats.
Goor worked and studied in many countries, including some in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the United States. With his wife, Euphemia Patricia (Pat) Goor, Dan now lives in Colorado Springs, while he and Pat also spend about half their time in Tel-Aviv Israel.
Dan Goor earned two Masters degrees from a Harvard affiliated school (the Fletcher School,) and a degree in Physics from Colorado State University; he is also a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan Fellow. Additionally, Goor studies Physics and religion at Abilene Christian University, and completed many advanced industrial training courses.
