I wonder why we have never seen this before?

 

I never knew that this even existed.

Completed in 2009 for $2 million, it sits on 5 acres of hillside, 20 miles

from the center of Jerusalem.

The memorial is a 30-foot, bronze American flag.

This metal remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin

Towers, that imploded on September 11th disaster. It was sent

over to Israel by the City of New York to be incorporated in

this memorial. This metal piece, like the entire monument, is

a manifestation of the special relationship between New York

and Jerusalem.

Surrounding the monument are plaques with the names of the

victims of 9/11.
