As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear another argument on how the nation should deal with suspected terrorists, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has expressed admiration toward how her counterparts in Israel have dealt with the issue.

Speaking at an Atlanta synagogue Sunday, Ginsburg noted that the former president of Israel’s high court, Aharon Barak, had said that while the U.S. had its Sept. 11, “we’ve had our 9/12, our 9/13 and so on. And yet we have strived mightily to remember what we stand for as a nation.”
