September 11, 2001. Remember, Repent and Return
Fifteen years ago, 19 evil Islamist terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and massacred 2,977 men, women and children in New York City, New York, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. At 8:46 A.M., ET, American Airlines flight 11, on its way from Boston to Los Angeles, crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

He gloated in its aftermath as if it were some kind of noble act! Fifteen years later, we still face the evil acts rooted in the ideology which fueled that organization.
