    On September 11, 2001, 2,819 people were killed in the attacks on America.  We must never forget what happened, or those that were lost. These are the names of people who died on that horrible day.  Remember.  Pray.  Keep the faith.

    On July 20, Jewish Journal columnist Dennis Prager conducted a lengthy interview on his radio show with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, author of “What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America,” who is best known for his plans to build an Islamic community center, including a...

  • 10 years after 9/11, what has changed?

    By Julie Gruenbaum Fax

    September 7, 2011 | 2:14 pm

    Even before the 110-story cloud of smoke cleared 10 years ago, America, and American Jews, grappled with a new desire to seek out the enemy — on the one hand to thwart him, and on the other to find out who he is, why he hates us so much and what we can do about it.

    That desire...

  • One woman’s political awakening

    September 7, 2011 | 2:08 pm

    Sept. 11 is partly responsible for my choice of career. In 2001, I was an architecture student, even if a disillusioned one, completely uninterested in politics and affairs of the world.

    9/11 changed that.

    Sept. 11, 2001, was just another lazy evening for me in Lahore. I had my...

  • Afghanistan’s turning point

    September 7, 2011 | 2:07 pm

    It was a decade ago that a number of terrorists conducted the most horrifying attack on the United States. They hit two big planes into the World Trade Center, targeted the Pentagon with a third, and, in a failed attempt, crashed a fourth in Pennsylvania, all together killing...

  • Lee Baca: Talk to people—Then arrest the right ones

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    September 7, 2011 | 2:01 pm

    For many, the world changed on Sept. 11, 2001. For Lee Baca, who had been elected Los Angeles County Sheriff three years earlier, his job changed, too.

    “It had to change radically,” Baca said.

    In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, it was Baca’s job to tamp down tensions...

  • Opinion: 9/11, 10 years later

    By Rob Eshman

    September 7, 2011 | 1:52 pm

    When I was in New York last week, I prowled Ground Zero. I couldn’t actually touch it — the entire site is now a massive construction zone, a concatenation of Shanghais, encircled in chain link, surrounded by uniformed officers of the New York City Police Department.

    I crossed...

  • Ten years later, terrorists still using immigration loopholes

    September 6, 2011 | 12:43 pm

    Terrorism and U.S. immigration policies are closely linked. We have made some progress since terrorists killed 3,000 innocent people in New York and Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, but clearly not enough.

    All 19 of the 9/11 hijackers entered the country with...

  • Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about 9/11 persist

    September 6, 2011 | 11:20 am

    Osama bin Laden is dead. A new skyscraper is rising at the site of the old World Trade Center. U.S. troops are withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Ten years later, the physical legacies of 9/11 attacks are fading into history. Yet the conspiracy theories about who “really”...

    August 31, 2011 | 11:25 am

    When unthinkable disaster struck a decade ago and close to 3,000 people were murdered at the World Trade Center, the scale of destruction created a unique challenge for victims’ families: identification of the dead.

    With only fragmented human remains and degraded DNA left in the...
