9-11, 12 years later

We're now at the 12th year since the jihadist attack on 9-11, and the annual memorial is being held again. Interestingly, the AP Wire article tells of something that came into effect a year ago:
Continuing a decision made last year, no politicians will speak, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Over his years as mayor and chairman of the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum, Bloomberg has sometimes tangled with victims' relatives, religious leaders and other elected officials over an event steeped in symbolism and emotion. But his administration has largely succeeded at its goal of keeping the commemoration centered on the attacks' victims and their families and relatively free of political image-making.
I'd say they're doing the right thing, because of Bloomberg's decisions to bar Judeo-Christian priests (and even rescue team operators) from delivering sermons, no doubt angering many families of victims too. Politicians who take one-sided actions like Bloomberg's staff did should be kept far away from the proceedings.

And despite what the AP says, mistreating Judeo-Christian advocates is very much a politicized act, and a very disrespectful one at that. Because of Bloomberg's dhimmitude, that's just why political interference had to be downplayed.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
