I was in Israel on Sept 11th. I had an interesting conversation with a couple of Israelis about Sept 11th. Their observations were illuminating. They said we view 9/11 like a religious holiday. And, that we tend to over inflate it since we don’t have to live with those kind of actions everyday. They (Israelis) having to live with terrorism every single day tend to have a view that they wont let terrorism alter their grounding. Like Mike’s Place in Tel Aviv – it was the scene of a suicide bomber back in 2003. Three people died and over 50 injured. The place was re-opened after 1 week. Yet look at the twin towers after 7 years.
