Pastor cancels Quran-burning, then reconsiders


GAINESVILLE, Fla. — An anti-Islamic preacher backed off and then threatened to reconsider burning the Quran on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, angrily accusing a Muslim leader of lying to him Thursday with a promise to move an Islamic center and mosque away from New York's ground zero. The imam planning the center denied there was ever such a deal.

Fla. pastor, imam at odds over Quran-burning deal

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Will he or won't he? Negotiations between a local Muslim cleric and the leader of a tiny Florida church who had threatened to publicly burn copies of Islam's holy text left the heated debate in a state of confusion with the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks a day away.

The Rev. Terry Jones said Thursday he would call off the planned burning of Qurans based on a deal negotiated with the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida that the location of a mosque planned near ground zero in New York would be changed.

But Imam Muhammad Musri said he was clear on Thursday when he told Jones that he could only set up a meeting with planners of the New York City mosque, whose leader said he had spoken to neither the pastor nor Musri. Jones responded by opening the door, if only a crack, that he would go forward with his plan on Saturday.

"We are just really shocked," Jones said of Musri. "He clearly, clearly lied to us."

Reaction to Quran burning pours in from around the world

Hamas leader Ismail Haniya called Jones a "religious criminal" and a "retard that expresses a Western-retarded mentality" that targets the Quran, Islam, and Muslims. Speaking in Gaza at the start of the Eid holiday, Haniya said, "I call upon God the merciful, if they want to rip the Quran, for God to rip them apart and their state and make them an example for the believers."

Springfield Pastor Plans To Burn Quran

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. - Springfield Pastor Bob Old said his decision to burn the Islamic holy book on September 11 has nothing to do with the agenda of the pastor in Florida or the controversy surrounding the mosque in New York. He has his own reasons behind the demonstrations and no intentions of backing down.

"My plans for Saturday are to take a copy of the Quran and burn it," said Old.

Protester plans to burn Quran on Capitol steps

By Becky Orr
borr@wyomingnews.com

CHEYENNE –– The founder of the Wyoming Tyranny Response Team plans to burn a copy of the Quran on the steps of the State Capitol on Saturday.

Duncan Philp said he will protest the location of a proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero in New York City. He also will protest President Barack Obama's support for the location.

"I feel Obama is being disingenuous when he pretends he supports religious liberties," Philp said. "(The Muslims) are not building that mosque out of love for my culture or love of the victims of 9-11 but for political reasons."

Pastor Terry Jones and his colleague Pastor K A Paul read out their telephone number live on television and said the Imam has just two hours to respond.

NYC Imam: No Meeting Planned With Terry Jones

Anti-Islamic Fla. Pastor Has Linked Quran-Burning Plan to Community Center in New York

The imam leading an effort to build an Islamic center near the World Trade Center site said Friday that he has no plans to meet with a Florida pastor who has threatened to burn copies of the Quran (Koran).

"I am prepared to consider meeting with anyone who is seriously committed to pursuing peace," Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said in a prepared statement. "We have no such meeting planned at this time. Our plans for the community center have not changed. With the solemn day of September 11 upon us, I encourage everyone to take time for prayer and reflection."

Islam controversies cast shadow over 9/11 events

The son of an anti-Muslim pastor in Florida confirmed that his father would not - at least for now - burn copies of the Quran, a plan that inflamed much of the Muslim world and drew a stern rebuke from Obama. But Terry Jones got on a plane headed to New York, according to an acquaintance, K.A. Paul; the flight that Paul said Jones would be on landed Friday night, but there was no immediate sign of the pastor inside the airport. Jones has said he wants to meet with the imam behind the proposed mosque.

I think if you can't or don't want to burn a koran you can still show solidarity by pinning a matchbook to your lapel. I think I read that suggestion here somewhere.

And I think it sounds like a good idea.

My idea was right Allah, or Koran or whatever on a piece of paper. Maybe print a copy of the Muslim flag on a piece of paper.

It is the thought that counts.

Why would you want to show solidarity with someone chummy with the westboro protesting nuts? I do want him to start the fire, start burning the korans and then fall into the fire.

Couple that with the international butthurtedness, and suddden appearance of .gov officials and mixed announcements, well, this probably is as good a topic as we've seen in quite a spell. Because there arre some very fundamental things underlying the moonbattery.

It is without a doubt a trainwreck, but perhaps it is a trainwreck with an accidental purpose.

That makes sense. I am sure this has happened before, but it is a strange culmination of events, and were we are as a country that I think has made this an issue.



  • The Ground Zero Mosque

  • 18% of Americans think Obama is not Christian

  • "Combat troops" leaving Iraq

  • Ninth anniversary of 9-11



With the media pouring fuel on the fire, this thing has gotten big.

Even if it is called off again, the whole situation has become bigger than a church of 30 burning the Koran.
