9/11 Memorial Dedicated in the Jerusalem Forest Hills

From the poignant Israeli commemoration speech

"We recall the tragic events of 9-11 and *vow* that such a loss should never occur...WHY HERE in ISRAEL, in Jerusalem? Because IF ANY NATION ON EARTH, if any city in the world, has endured similar horrors, can share comparable pain, can equally perceive the inherent threat to civilization and life, is able to continue to battle evil, will swear to eternally remember the outcome and the price, is committed to seek peace while standing guard against war, and share similar human national and democratic values with the United States -- It is here in Israel at the gates of it's capital Jerusalem"
