Dennis Prager writes in How Would Americans React to Terror?:
During the worst of the Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis, I visited Israel and made a documentary (“Israel in a Time of Terror”) about how Israelis regarded and lived with the murdering of their fellow men, women, and children. I will forever regard the Israelis of that period as achieving a rare level of national greatness: They were able to go on living normal lives, returning the next day to the same cafes bombed the day before, riding on the same bus line that the day before had its passengers blown up, blinded, maimed, and brain damaged. While making the documentary, I often wondered how we Americans would react if such terror came to our restaurants, malls, and buses.
