Evangelical Christian Leaders Hold Summit to Respond To Terrorism

Date: September 12, 2012

September 11th, should have just been a solemn day and day of remembering the loved ones lost in that deadly attack. But instead on the anniversary of 9/11 Muslim extremists in Libya and Egypt attacked the US Embassy and consulates after the release online of a film mocking Islam and depicting the Muslim prophet Mohammed as a child molester, womanizer and ruthless killer.

Other sources believe the attack to be Al Qaeda sponsored revenge attack for the killing of Al Qaeda’s second in command a few months ago.

Ambassador Chris Stevens, who risked his life to help Libyans overthrow dictator Muammar Gaddafi, was killed overnight in the former rebel capital of Benghazi. He was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed violently in the line of duty since 1979. Three other of his staff also lost their lives.
