THANK YOU, ISRAEL. A new ‘Living Memorial’ dedicated to the victims of 9/11 has just been opened in Jerusalem.

But 8 years later, New York City can’t even seem to get a shovel in the ground to build a memorial of its own?

U.S. Ambassador James Cunningham and Defense and Air Attache Colonel Richard Burgess took part in the dedication ceremony for a JNF-sponsored September 11 monument and Living Memorial at the entrance to Jerusalem (in the surrounding forest) on Thursday, November 12, 2009.
