Large Matzav Video Collection: 9/11 Footage, Marking Thirteen Years, Today


9-11[Comprehensive video collection below.] When we woke up this morning, the date on our calendars reminded us sharply of exactly where we were 13 years ago.

The day the world changed for ever.

The words “nine eleven” are branded into our history as ­deeply as any world war.

There isn’t a schoolchild in the country who doesn’t know what happened on that sunny day in Manhattan.

And no adult who watched the ­horror unfold on TV will forget those heart-stopping images.

The gaping, fiery hole where the fuselage exploded like a bomb, the heroic firemen heading up the blazing towers, and the “dust people” who ­staggered like ghosts from the wreckage, will haunt us for ever.

So too will the after-shock of panic.

We watched in stunned silence as the ­passenger planes tore into the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

“That can’t be real,” someone whispered as the most iconic buildings in the world crumbled like sand.

Until September 11, 2001, the idea that terrorists could attack the sacred financial heart of the Western world was ridiculous.

America was a fortress, Al Qaeda was an obscure bunch of fanatics and leader Osama Bin Laden was a nutter with a stupid beard.

Back then, Islamic extremists were someone else’s ­problem.

But the moment 3,000 innocent people were vaporised in the worst atrocity of my lifetime, it was the end of the world as we knew it and the start of a new era of fear.

But 9/11 also changed the world in a more profound way.

After decades of vulgar excess it made us realise what was ­really important in life.

Family, friends, a safe job and a happy home all suddenly seemed so much more important than chasing the materialistic culture we live in.

Seeing thousands of people wiped out before your eyes, you realize how ­important life is.

To mark this day, has compiled a varied collection of videos from that horrific attack.

May we merit the geulah sheleimah, speedily, in our day.

  1. do you know why 9/11 happened? i.e. every tragedy that occurs in klal yisroel has a wake-up message STRAIGHT from Hashem. do you know what the message of 9/11 is?

    Do you know that 9/11 is our sad day for over 2000 years? ???? ???, 9 is ???? Av is 11 ???? is 12 & ???? is 1, how does that grab you? How does that shock you? what about the phone number 911? that’s also ???? ???. that’s Americas emergency number for a minimum of 50 to 100 years, why didn’t they pick 111? are you going to tell me cause a baby might press 111 by mistake? These 2 tragedies-above-were only hint’s to tisha b’av, but it wasn’t enough to bring klal yisroel to start doing teshuva. So what happened ON tisha b’av 2005, i.e. no more hints to tisha b’av? Gush Katif/the Gaza Disengagement, it was supposed to happen on tisha b’av but they waited until Motzei tisha b’av, they did not even wait till the next morning, which means it was still tisha b’av in Chutz La’aretz (diaspora). Now let me ask you something, are these 3 tragedies-relating to tisha b’av-coincidence or is it a straight message from Hashem that its time for klal yisroel to wake up & do ?????? You think about it, this is not between people, this is between each person & Hashem.

    above is just recent tragedies relating to tisha b’av Many other tragedies happened on 9/11 throughout the years we passed, including crystal nacht & the europion holocaust which happened on 11/9

    among other tragic wake-up calls RELATING to 9/11 is:Osama Bin Laden-the terrorist leader of Al Quada & leader of the terrorist act of
    9/11- was captured & killed on May 1 2011. Israel’s Holocaust memorial day (Yom Hashoa) in 2011 came out also on May 1. Hitler YEMACH SHEMAM commited Suicide on May 1.. put the english date of 5-1 together & get the wake-up message straight from Hashem. you get 51, which chapter in Tehillim is chapter 51? The chaper of Teshuva (repentance) when will klal yisroel wake up & do teshuva? just how many more signs of tragedies C”V will have to happen before we do teshuva? IS THIS MESSAGE & SIGN ENOUGH or does klal yisroel-myself included-need more Tzaros to get us to wake up & do Teshuva?

    May we all start doing teshuva ASAP before tragedy strikes again C”V

  2. I can’t say i disagree with you but i’m not sure people want to base their complete torah outlook on something they read in the comments section of
