This is a guest post by Representative Erik Paulsen (MN-03). He is in Israel this week with AIPAC and will be blogging regularly and exclusively for TC Jewfolk during his trip. Miss yesterday’s post? Read it here.
From the Desk of Erik Paulsen:
Dan will certainly be busy given the continued highly visible issues in this region centered around security, defense and stability with other Mideast neighbors.
Unfortunately, one thing I won’t have time to do is visit the 9/11 memorial on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Almost two years ago I helped dedicate this special memorial by lighting its flame. It’s unique because it was, and probably still is, the only 9/11 memorial in a country outside of the U.S. that recognizes America’s 9/11 victims. It’s actually constructed of material from the World Trade Center itself.
All for now,
Member of Congress
