On this year's 9/11, Netanyahu says Israel remains committed to fighting the forces of militant Islam.
Radical Islamist groups in the US have asked the National September 11 Memorial Museum to censor derogatory references about al-Qaeda in order not to offend Muslims.
The fact that three men were brutally murdered on September 11, in murders which remain unsolved but in which the victims have now been connected to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, cannot be ignored.
Two Arabic language websites in Britain and Egypt, banking on the theory that people will believe a lie if you tell it often enough, have dug out the “Blame Israel for 9/11” libel again.
The issue of what happened in Benghazi, Libya in September 11, 2012 is likely to come up in at least one if not several of the different topic areas. President Obama will seek to put a definitive end to the questioning about how his administration handled the crisis, and presidential-hopeful Mitt Romney will seek to lay out the inconsistencies in the narratives presented by this administration over the course of the six weeks since the tragedy.
Hillary told CNN that she takes “responsibility” for what happened in Benghazi, “what I want to avoid is some kind of political gotcha or blame game.”
Randy Scott’s family believed he had died instantly on September 11, 2001. Ten years after the attack, a note thrown out the window of the South Tower shortly after impact was discovered and identified using DNA tests. It was written by Scott minutes before he perished.
New York City is used to tragedy. Terrible things happen here all the time. But New York cannot move on, neither can the country, because the murderers are still on the loose and what happened on September 11 was not an isolated incident, but part of a pattern of attacks taking place in a clash of civilizations. New York, the crossroads of civilizations, is a natural target for the attacks. New York is to the world what Mecca was to Arabia and the new Mohammeds are eager to do to it what Mohammed did to Mecca.

Chanuka symbolizes Divine deliverance and the triumph of good over evil, themes that have particular resonance now that both the United States and Israel are waging war against terrorism. Indeed, the presence of these three politicians in Israel at this time sharply underscores the parallel challenges presented by the events of September 11 and the more than year-long Intifada. Coming as well, in the context of President Bush's no-nonsense support for Israel's anti-terrorist efforts, it is an indication that American appreciation of Israel's plight is not only broad, but deep as well.
There is growing evidence that now that success in Afghanistan is within reach, the President is serious about pursuing the war against terrorism to other venues. One senses an almost palpable effort to prepare the world community for the so-called Phase II. It will be recalled that Mr. Bush declared soon after September 11th that targeting Osama bin Laden and his Taliban protectors would be Phase I, and that neutralizing the terror network around the world would constitute Phase II. And it is fast emerging that Iraq will be the first step.
To those who harbor, in the back of their minds, the uneasy notion that America's friendship with Israel really was the reason for the September 11 events, an article by Holger Jensen in Sunday's New York Post should be required reading. In the course of making a point about how the nations of the world seem to tolerate terrorism when it promotes their immediate political aims, Jensen also provides a revealing catalog of the Osama bin Laden terror agenda:
