The Rev. Douglas Leonard On the Unrest in the Middle East

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified before the Senate Wednesday, explaining the United States’ security steps since the September attack in Libya that killed four Americans. After the death of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, The Rev. Douglas Leonard, executive director of the Al Amana Centre, discussed the root of the resulting violence in the Middle East. "Islam happens to be the religion that is tied to this region and so it gets confused with the issue." Leonard continues, "But this is really not about Islam."
