Danny was the first to sense something was atypical in that typical morning flight on a nice sunny morning over New York on September 11, 2001, and he was the first to die over this. His IDF special forces training made him suspicious when men of middle-eastern appearance in first class began to arise and make their way towards the cockpit while the plane was in flight over New York. He stood up and went to challenge those terrorists who arose before him but he was unaware of yet another who was still seated behind him and Danny was overpowered by the group and slashed to death with their box cutters. The 9-11 hijackings could never have happened in Israel at that time because the Jewish State had already learned from previous terror attacks by radical Palestinian groups and reinforced cockpit doors along with armed air marshals were already common security protocol. Months prior to this in the US however, some early warning signs of something afoot were being detected across the States such as Arab Islamists in US flight schools training to only control an aircraft already in flight and skipping the take-off and landing sessions, but these observations were not fully understood, analyzed, appreciated, and communicated by America's intelligence agencies to the peril of all those innocents that perished so tragically that day. Let Daniel Lewin's name be the first to be read today and let US-Israeli cooperation in the fight against terror expand as much as needed to deal with their common enemies.
