The full text of this week's commentary follows:
The Boston tragedy
continues to loom large.
Our thoughts are with
the four families of those killed by the terrorists, driven by their demented beliefs.
Our prayers are with the
many wounded and now lying in hospital rooms.
In a very real sense,
we're all Bostonians.
And that feeling of
solidarity and common destiny has been evident in some other countries as well.
In response to repeated
acts of terrorism, Israel has developed
some amazing medical techniques.
Those techniques have been
shared with many Boston and other American hospitals.
As the emergency
services chief at a top Boston hospital said after last week’s attacks, "About
two years ago … we asked the Israelis to … help us set up our disaster team, so
that we could respond in this kind of manner."
What happened in
Boston last week is another stark reminder that all countries and all people of
good will must stand together.
