The President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Ersin Tatar, on Sunday called on the Greek Cypriot administration to review its relationship with terrorism and terrorist organizations.

The Greek Cypriot administration has authorized the PYD political wing of the PKK terrorist organization to open a representative office in the country, Tatar recalled in a written statement expressing its support for the Claw-Sword Türkiye operation launched on Sunday morning against terrorist bases in northern Iraq and Syria.

There is no difference between the PYD/YPG and the PKK, Tatar noted, all of which are officially listed by the Turkish Cypriot Parliament as terrorist organizations. “I call on the Greek Cypriot administration to re-examine its relationship with terrorism and terrorist organizations and I urge them to stop cooperating for political reasons with terrorist groups that threaten humanity around the world,” Tatar said.

In January this year, the Greek Cypriot administration authorized the terrorist group to open an office in Lefkoşa (Nicosia) in a move that drew an intense reaction from TRNC and Türkiye.

TRNC Prime Minister Faiz Sucuoğlu had slammed the Greek Cypriot administration for having a “pro-terrorist attitude” and said the move would “lay the groundwork for illegal activities on the island”.

“The recent step, which allows this bloody murderous network to operate on the island by opening an office, is a new page in the history of the Greek Cypriot administration which fuels terrorism,” Sucuoğlu remarked.

Mevlüt, Turkish Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu also promised Greek Cypriots “would pay a heavy price if PKK-linked terrorists carried out attacks against Turkish Cypriots or Türkiye”.

In his message on Sunday, Tatar also expressed his belief that “the sacred struggle that Türkiye, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) and the Turkish people are waging with a spirit of national mobilization against despicable terrorist groups will be successful”.

The TRNC will always stand with Turkey against any kind of terrorist threat targeting Turkey and jeopardizing national security, Tatar promised.

Operation Claw-Sword aims to stop terrorist attacks from northern Iraq and Syria against the Turkish people and security forces, ensure border security and eradicate terrorism at its roots, Tatar noted. and stated that Türkiye was carrying out the said operation within the framework of its legitimate rights granted by the international community. right.

Ankara launched a counter-offensive air operation on Saturday night targeting the PKK and its PYD/YPG offshoots across its borders with Syria and Iraq, the Defense Ministry reported Sunday morning.

The airstrike, which is in line with the right of self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter, the ministry said, struck terrorist nests across the region, directly hitting at least 89 locations, including bunkers, shelters, caves, tunnels, ammunition depots, so-called headquarters and training camps.

After the operation, which mainly used state and domestic ammunition, the four Turkish fighter jets returned safely to their bases, the ministry added.

The operation follows that of last Sunday Terrorist attack in Istanbul’s busy Istiklal street which killed at least six people and injured 81. The Turkish government said the attack was carried out by the PKK/YPG terrorist organization.

The attack was described as “an attempt to bring Turkey back into the grip of global instability” by Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu, a sentiment echoed by many other politicians, including President Erdoğan, who had assured that those responsible for the attack would be detained. indebted.

The PKK/YPG, however, threatened to retaliate against Türkiye’s counteroffensive and launched two separate rocket attacks on the same day on the country’s southeastern border. At least eight members of the Turkish security forces, seven policemen and one soldier were injured.

The Indian Diaspora is planning a large protest outside Pakistan’s High Commission in London to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the 26/11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai. The protest also aims to highlight the scourge of state-sponsored terror that threatens the world.

The protest is being launched by many concerned groups and individuals under the hashtag #UniteAgainstTerrorism in Lowndes Square, London, at the Pakistan High Commission on the anniversary of the attacks.

Story from India contacted some of the protest organizers.

Physician Dr Vivek Kaul said: “This protest is important because the world needs to be constantly reminded of the dangers of state-sponsored jihadist ideology and the havoc it can wreak on peace-loving nations.”

The protest also aims to highlight the lack of justice for the families of those who have been killed and injured by Pakistani-trained terrorists.

On why the Diaspora are organizing the protest outside the Pakistani High Commission, the Indic Society, an online group said, “Pakistan is the only country in the world that not only uses terrorism as a policy and strategy of State to inflict suffering on other sovereign nations. but also people residing within their geographical limits”. The group highlights how the Pakistani Armed Forces have regularly unleashed armed terrorists to wreak havoc in India.”

On November 26, 2008, ten Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists set sail for Mumbai from Karachi in Pakistan and attacked landmarks such as the Taj Mahal hotel, Chhatrapati Shivaji railway terminus, Chabad house, the Cama Hospital, Leopold Café and Nariman House Company.

The attacks were carried out with automatic weapons and grenades. Lasting four days, the LeT terrorists killed 166 people and injured 300, including foreign tourists. Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab was captured alive and hanged after a lengthy trial.

Pakistan is home to LeT leader Hafiz Saeed despite being gray listed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). A special anti-terrorism court in Pakistan imprisoned Saeed for 31 years for raising funds for terrorism. China has also supported Pakistan in preventing India and the United States from designating Said’s son, Hafiz Talah Said, as a global terrorist.

Moshe Holtzberg, the two-year-old son of a Jewish rabbi escaped attack even as the assailants killed his parents. Earlier this week he read prayers at the Israeli Knesset commemorating the Mumbai terror attack.

As terrorists and terrorist organizations wreak havoc in India with support from Pakistan and China, India is upping the ante on state sponsored terror. Speaking at the ‘No Money for Terror’ conference in Mumbai, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: “Some countries support terrorism as part of their foreign policy. They offer them political, ideological and financial support… There must be a cost imposed on these countries”.

Also last month, India hosted a special meeting of the Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) of the United Nations Security Council which adopted the Delhi Declaration against the use of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes.

Pakistan expressed its shock and condemnation of the Lakki Marwat terrorist attack and urged the security authorities to take strict counter-terrorism measures. The nation mourns the loss of the six police officers martyred in the attack.

Earlier, unknown miscreants opened fire on a mobile during a routine patrol in Lakki Marwat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Six police officers – including an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) – were killed in the gun attack.

Martyred cops include ASI Ilm Deen, Detective Foot Constable Ahmed Nawaz, Lower Chief Constable Zubair, Border Reserve Police sepoy Usman Ali, Constable Mahmood Khan and Driver Dil Jan.

On the other hand, reports are emerging that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack came amid an upsurge in violence in KP and as citizens continue to stage frequent protests, demanding peace be restored. Following the Lakki Marwat incident, citizens are alarmed at the resurgence of terrorist attacks in the Pashtun belt.

Convictions are pouring in

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan have strongly condemned the militants’ attack on a police van in Lakki Marwat.

“Make no mistake about it. Terrorism continues to be one of Pakistan’s main problems. Our armed forces and our police forces have valiantly fought this scourge. No words are enough to condemn the terrorist attack on a police van in Lakki Marwat. My thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families,” Shehbaz Sharif said.

Meanwhile, CM Mahmood Khan became aware of the incident and requested a report from the KP Inspector General of Police (IGP). CM KP said that the elements involved in this inhuman act would be stopped at all costs, adding that the sacrifice of the martyrs would not be in vain.

Other political leaders in Pakistan also condemned the incident. MP Mohsin Dawar said the scale of the attack shows how far terrorism has spread in the province. He also called on the government and the media to ignore the “Talibanization” of the KPK.

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry also condemned the attack and expressed his sadness at the martyrdom of the police.

“Very sorry for the martyrdom of the police! Terrorists must be eliminated and action must be taken. RIP Braveheart’s,” said Fawad Chaudhry.

Seven years ago, on November 13, 2015, three Islamist terrorists armed with assault rifles and explosive belts stormed the Bataclan during a concert by American band Eagles of Death Metal, taking the audience hostage and killing 90 people.

Around the same time, 40 people were murdered in attacks on bars, restaurants and at the Stade de France national stadium. The attacks in Paris perpetrated by the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS) have struck France deeply, and the Bataclan has become its symbol.

A still from the movie
Father and son are slowly returning to a semblance of normal lifePicture: Komplizen Film/Tobisfilm

This night of November 13, the journalist Antoine Leiris loses his wife Hélène. Both were young parents, their son Melvil was only 17 months old.

As the world struggled to find an explanation for the inconceivable horror of the attacks, Leiris posted an open letter on Facebook. In moving words, he addressed the attackers and denied them, “dead souls”, his hatred – and that of his son. The message went around the world.

Later, Leiris published a book about how he struggled to come back to life with his son, titled “You will not have my hatred”.

Exterior view

Now a movie based on the book, directed by German filmmaker Kilian Riedhof, has been released.

A parent recommended the book, Riedhof told DW. A father and husband himself, it moved him so much he ended up making a movie: “To imagine how this terrorist attack could affect you is a nightmare happening to this family,” he says, adding that the book hit close to home. away, and that he knew he wanted to make a movie out of it.

Riedhof meets Antoine Leiris in Paris. Concerns that Leiris might prefer a Parisian filmmaker were immediately dispelled. “He thought it was good that we had some distance from the epicenter of the action,” says Riedhof. “After all, it takes a certain distance to understand some things.”

The filmmaker has therefore assumed the role of supportive friend, while being “very aware of his responsibility”. The trauma is still very fresh in Paris, he said, adding that an incredible number of people have stories about that night.

Avoid sensationalism

As a result, Riedhof took a cautious approach to the film.

Pierre Deladonchamps plays the role of Leiris; he resembles her and brings the charm and intellect that Leiris exudes despite his grief. Deladonchamps conveys with absolute credibility the shock and the trauma, but also the healing of a man who comes back to life with the help of his son.

Their apartment is their cocoon, their shelter, where everything reminds them of Hélène, but also gives them the strength and the meaning to carry on. The camera is always very close to Deladonchamps and Zoe Iorio, who plays the role of Melvil.

“It was important for us to tell the story with gentleness and sensitivity. It was less about dramatization and more about listening and empathy,” says Riedhof. Attacks, assassins, corpses are not shown in “You Will Not Have My Hate”.

The film instead focuses on the effect of such an act on a family. “Having to deal with the feeling of hatred and despair and overcome it…Making it a physical experience for the viewer was definitely a major task,” the director said.

Take back the Parisian night

After the terrorist attack, the Bataclan hall remained closed for about a year while it underwent a major renovation. Then the Parisians reclaimed the place defiantly declaring “I’m on the terrace” returning to the terraces of cafes and bars. They refused to be bullied or have their lifestyle taken away.

When the Bataclan reopened, British musician Sting said he wanted to remember the victims but also celebrate music and life.

Strong memories, 7 years later

A few days before the seventh anniversary of the attacks, on October 23, 2022, the German folk pop duo Milky Chance performed in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Bataclan.

“Now we are used to working here, but it always does something to you. We always think about it,” Karim and Djerry, who work for security at the Bataclan, told the German news agency dpa before the start of the Milky Chance concert.

Playing at the Bataclan was a “balancing act”, said Philipp Dausch of Milky Chance, adding that maybe that was the challenge. His band colleague Clemens Rehbein said that “after all, it’s a very positive response”.

“The fact that concerts are taking place here again and the atmosphere is so exuberant does not mean, or should not mean, that people forget what happened,” he says.

Through his research for the film, director Kilian Riedhof observed that the night of terror is still very present in the minds of Paris: “The wound is still felt today, people have a very concrete link with this night “, he says. “But I think that Parisians very quickly started to counter it with life, to have this beer on the terrace, and to respond with culture.”

The message of the terrorists was to hide: their objective was to sow fear. But “the Parisians understood very quickly that this is exactly what we cannot do. We cannot let ourselves be driven out of public places. They chose to come back to life, to be together, to defend culture — theater, music, cinema — because that’s just the right answer to hate.”

The Spectator under fire for ‘despicable’ migrant cartoons after Dover terror attack https://capperi.net/the-spectator-under-fire-for-despicable-migrant-cartoons-after-dover-terror-attack/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 13:22:05 +0000 https://capperi.net/the-spectator-under-fire-for-despicable-migrant-cartoons-after-dover-terror-attack/ THE Spectator has been accused of using ‘vile’ images to promote an article about immigration to Britain.

THE Spectator has been accused of using ‘vile’ images to promote an article about immigration to Britain.

The column, by Sam Ashworth-Hayes argued that “politicians have not been honest about immigration to Britain”.

It is accompanied by an illustration that shows a giant wave of non-white migrants climbing over each other to reach what looks like the White Cliffs of Dover.

People are seen reaching out with their hands to the earth as two tiny onlookers look on.

The image in the article sparked strong reactions with comparisons made to Nigel Farage’s infamous anti-migrant poster which showed a queue of thousands of mostly non-white migrants and refugees, along with the words ‘breaking point: the EU has let us all down’.

Others have gone further in their comparisons, with SNP MP John Nicolson tweeted: “Even by viewer standards these are revolting images.

“The images and messages would have sounded very familiar to a Nazi propagandist in 1930s Germany.”

In response to the tweet, Spectator editor Fraser Nelson said: “John, I always find the links work better because you can see the original context and read the articles. This was a cover image of 2014: the Spectator has since pleaded for an amnesty for undocumented migrants, can we now count on your support?

“And John, this is one of the most recent stories from the frontman of The Spectator calling for amnesty for undocumented migrants – although we have been advocating for this cause for 20 years. But what is needed is that the MPs are advocating this cause in parliament. I hope you can do that one day.”

Miqdaad Versi, media spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, suggested the timing of the image was particularly insensitive.

He said: “This week: A person who previously said he was planning to ‘annihilate Muslim children’ bombed a migrant center in Dover.

“Today: The Spectator posts an image of a *tidal wave* of what appear to be Muslim migrants on the white cliffs of Dover. Disgusting.”

Saturday, the the firebombing of an immigration processing center in Dover has been declared a terrorist incident.

Police said they found evidence the attack was motivated by far-right ideology.

Andrew Leak, 66, from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, is believed to have killed himself at a nearby petrol station after throwing two or three ‘raw’ incendiary devices at the Western Jet Foil site in Kent last Sunday.

The article, written by the former director of studies at the Henry Jackson Centre, claimed that despite the public having repeatedly voted to cut immigration, the number of people in the UK has only increase.

Ashworth-Hayes said while immigration has brought benefits to the UK, it has not been without costs.

He added that politicians, including conservativesconcluded that these benefits outweigh the costs.

However, much of the criticism centered on the photo, with Good Law Project director Jo Maugham tweeting: “Remember the outrage caused by Farage’s fascist ‘Breaking Point’ poster in 2016?

“This image of the Spectator is far worse. But we are no longer outraged. The Spectator will sit in polite parlors and be amplified by the BBC. Brexit made us the nation of Farage.

RS Archer added: “The imagery is important, this from The Spectator is appalling and will simmer hatred.”

And Glasgow Work MSP Paul Sweeney said: “Disgusting to see the @spectator indulge in such xenophobic imagery.

“It’s not just bigoted, it’s an ignorant caricature.

“The UK has experienced broadly similar levels of migration to other high-income countries, on average over the past few decades.”

The viewer was approached for comment.

On October 28, 2022, India and the United States raised the issue of terrorist listing at the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee Special Meeting on “Combating the Use of New and Emerging Technologies in terrorist purposes”. This meeting was held at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, one of the sites of the 26/11 terrorist attacks. The 15 representatives of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the five new members attended this conference. Several survivors of this heinous crime also attended the meeting. During the presentation, senior officials from India’s Home Ministry played audio clips of Sajid Mir, one of those who planned and executed this terrorist attack. It is pertinent to mention that the inclusion of Sajid Mir in the list of global terrorists, an initiative of India and the United States, clashed vehemently with China, allegedly to save Pakistan from embarrassment. .

Addressing the meeting, S. Jaishankar, Honorable Minister for External Affairs of India, said that when it comes to proposing some of those terrorists who have planned and executed various terrorist attacks on Indian soil, it is concerning that politics comes in between in the forum like the UNSC. This indeed weakens our united cause against terrorism. Transparency in the functioning of the UNSC is essential and paramount and must not be rendered futile by political considerations driven by self-interest. US State Security also said we need to do more than cry. We have a moral responsibility and obligation to bring terrorists to justice, but unfortunately some countries are obstructing this judicial process. China cited technical reasons for not listing terrorists under UNSC Resolution 1267.

This world faces many dilemmas regarding global collaboration in the fight against terrorism. The face of international terrorism changed after the September 11 terrorist attack in the United States. The intensity of this terrorist attack, the selection of targets, the sophisticated planning and execution broke all established conventions. The number of people who have lost their lives and the amount of property destroyed indicate that international terrorism has become a brutal, perceptible and empirical danger to modern society. The main terrorist attacks perpetrated after 9/11 are: the Bali bombings (2002), the Madrid train bombing (2004), the Ba’qubah bombing in Iraq (2004), the London (2005), Mumbai terrorist attacks (2008), Bangkok bombing (2015), Brussels bombing (2016), London Bridge bombing (2019), Sri Lanka Easter bombing (2019), Christchurch Mosque (2019), etc.

Terrorism is as old as human history. However, to understand the consequences of the threat posed by modern international terrorism, one must go back to the situation in Afghanistan (1979-1989), which stands out as a long-term legacy of the two superpowers of the war era. cold. Internationally, its consequences continue to plague global society in the form of a struggle between the Western liberal democratic order and Islamic extremism. Internally, the effects of the war have weakened the country’s political institutions, economy and society and turned Afghanistan into a battleground for sectarian rivalries and a breeding ground for religious fundamentalism.

Along with the Iranian revolution and the Arab-Israeli conflict, events in Afghanistan have played an important role in the growth of Islamist terrorism. For many Muslims, the war in Afghanistan involves a shift from nationalism to Islamism. It was a decisive movement in the history of militant Muslim revivalists. Muslims from all over the world came to Afghanistan to fight the USSR. Activists from across the Muslim world met and interacted for long periods of time. The common struggle has led to strong bonds between them. These mujahideen were supported by both the United States and the United Kingdom via Pakistan. Pakistan in turn diverted these funds to carry out cross-border terrorism in India and other parts of the world and the rest is history.

With the withdrawal of the USSR from Afghanistan, the war ended on February 15, 1989. The mercenaries who had completed their task in Afghanistan were divided into three groups: some militants remained in Afghanistan, united by Osama Bin Laden, and formed a new group called Al-Qaeda. Some people returned to their countries and created various terrorist organizations. A third group includes people who were not accepted by their country and sought asylum in Western countries, which eventually became hotbeds for the spread of Muslim fundamentalists. The existence of this type of global terrorist network is a new phenomenon. They believe in the divine command ordering members of the network to spread their ideology of radical Islam through violent extremism around the world, and this is a dangerous trend. Such a threat requires a united international community in its efforts to combat the threat of terrorism.

There is a need to create a combined counter-terrorism strategy. Global teamwork is an essential element in the fight against international terrorism. In addition to intelligence sharing, the experience gained by different nations in the fight against terrorism should be shared with other countries that do not have the required experience in the fight against terrorism. This experience may include punitive policy, security policy, management of emergency services, coordination between different agencies, medical treatment, handling of suspicious persons, etc. This information could be shared through joint training activities, short courses and an exchange of officials dealing with terrorism. Another critical area of ​​cooperation could be the sharing of technological know-how. Security forces and terrorist organizations compete to acquire and use the latest technologies.

While a strong military and adequate covert intelligence-gathering skills must remain at the forefront of our efforts to stop and defeat terrorists, focusing solely on these actions is insufficient to deal with a multidimensional and dynamic global threat. . Global cooperation on a wide range of methods using a wide range of tools deserves more attention and resources to advance joint efforts to address emerging threats such as radicalization and recruitment and to sustain the fight against terrorism on the international agenda. Further unified coordination and more effective capacity building are essential to preserve cross-border cooperation in tracking funding, disrupting planning, preventing future attacks, and investigating, capturing and prosecuting terrorists.

  1. Jaishankar made a five-point suggestion for the UNCTC to consider when developing the strategy to combat international terrorism:
  • Constructive and sustained efforts to combat the financing of terrorism.
  • It is necessary to ensure the efficiency and transparency of the functioning of the UNSC.
  • International cooperation on punitive actions against terrorists and their sponsors, including the dismantling of terrorist assets.
  • Synergy to break the link between terrorists and international organized criminals.
  • Cooperation is needed to counter the technology used in fundraising through virtual modes.

Counterterrorism cooperation means that nations can help shoulder the burden of providing capacity-building and training assistance to those who are lagging behind. Multilateral engagement also offers prospects not only for fostering bilateral relations in the fight against terrorism. But it increases common knowledge of the threat and builds the trust needed to share information to prevent, detect and destroy the terrorist.

Conclusion: Terrorism threatens the security of citizens, international stability and prosperity. It is a persistent global threat that knows no borders, nationalities or religions and it is a challenge that the international community must meet together. Together, the global community will continue to fight this threat with determination and full solidarity. Today’s world needs greater international collaboration in the fight against terrorism. The geopolitical situation that divides the world community on the issue of terrorism is not acceptable. Terrorists are a global threat, and we need global efforts to counter this threat.

Unfortunately, we do not have adequate global cooperation to fight terrorism and create the conditions necessary to change the global arena. We need more international cooperation with more responsibility.

“Washington’s reaction to the terrorist attack on the port of Sevastopol is truly outrageous. We have seen no sign of condemnation of the reckless actions of the Kyiv regime. Instead, all the indications that British military specialists have been involved in organizing today’s massive strike with the use of drones, are being ignored,” the envoy was quoted as saying by the embassy’s press service.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Saturday that the Kyiv regime carried out a terrorist attack against Black Sea Fleet warships and civilian vessels in Sevastopol, using nine drones and seven marine autonomous surface vehicles.

The ministry stressed that the attacked ships are involved in securing the grain corridor, within the framework of the international initiative on the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports.

The ministry said that the preparations for the terrorist attack on Sevastopol and the training of military personnel from the 73rd Navy Special Operations Center were carried out under the supervision of British specialists, who were stationed in the town of Ochakov, in the Nikolayev region.

Rome: At least one person is believed to have died, while four others were injured in a knife attack in the Italian city of Milan on Thursday. The incident took place in a shopping center in Assago, a suburb of Milan. According to reports, a man armed with a knife stabbed several people.

The accused allegedly stole the knife from the supermarket to carry out the attack. A 30-year-old mall employee died on the way to hospital, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

Among the injured was Spanish footballer Pablo Mari. He is undergoing treatment at a nearby hospital. He is now conscious. Notably, Mari is currently on loan at Italian football club AC Monza, from Arsenal in England. Monza club CEO Adrian Galliano wished the footballer a speedy recovery.

“Dear Pablo, we are all close to you and your family, we wish you good luck, keep fighting like you know how to do, you are a warrior and you will recover soon,” Galliani said in a message tweeted by the soccer club. .

The 46-year-old suspect was arrested by the police. The motive for the attack is still not known. Meanwhile, authorities said there was evidence to call it a terrorist attack. The suspect suffered from psychological disorders.

YORK, Pa. — A new invoice was passed by the Pennsylvania Senate that ensures classrooms teach about one of the darkest times in American history: 9/11.

Pennsylvania schools do not have a 9/11 curriculum that teaches students about the terrorist attack and its impact. A bill should change that.

“The bill is very simple, directing the Pennsylvania Department of Education to create standards and educational materials to make available to each school district through an online portal,” said Sen. Kristin Phillip. -Hill (R-York County).

The Department of Education has one year to develop the model curriculum. Under the bill, school districts could decide whether or not to pass it.

The program should include the historical context of terrorism, details of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville.

It would also cover the United States’ recovery and response to terrorist attacks as well as global challenges and consequences.

“I think anyone who lived through that day has a feeling and an understanding of the significance of how it really changed the trajectory of our lives,” Phillip-Hill said.

Scott Hershey of East Lampeter Township says it’s hard not to remember 9/11.

“I was actually watching live when the second plane hit, so I watched from then on. It’s probably the longest I’ve ever watched TV in one sitting,” said said Hershey.

Now, 21 years and three children later, he makes sure his children know what happened too.

“We sat down and watched many videos about it at home. I think the boys are interested, they want to know and they ask questions,” Hershey said.

He says not all children know what happened on 9/11, so he thinks it’s important that all schools teach that part of the story.

“It’s a significant historical event, just like something like Pearl Harbor. It was an attack on our country, and it changed our country, it’s worth teaching,” Hershey said.
