Pastor Calls Of Quran Burning Gimmick?

Recommended Posts

It appears that the US pastor has had a change of mind, even though there seems to be some confusion over the efficiency of his newly procured mind.

 

 

US pastor 'suspends' Quran burning

 

Jones rethinking decision to cancel event, accusing Muslim leader of lying to him with promise to move Islamic centre.

 

 

A Christian pastor in the US state of Florida has called off and then threatened to reconsider plans to burn copies of the Quran, in an event that had been roundly criticised and stoked fears of violence around the globe.

 

Reverend Terry Jones said on Thursday that he made the decision to cancel the event because the leader of a planned Islamic centre near the so-called Ground Zero site in New York had agreed to move its location.

 

However, the developers behind the planned Islamic centre said they had not agreed to any such deal, and that the centre would not be moved.

 

"It is untrue that the community center known as Park51 in lower Manhattan is being moved. The project will proceed as planned. What is being reported in the media today is a falsehood," the developers said in a statement.

 

Jones, the leader of a congregation of about 50 people, had planned to incinerate copies of the Muslim holy book in a bonfire on Saturday to mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, DC.

 

No promises

 

However, during a televised news conference on Thursday, Jones called on others not to burn copies of the Quran. He said instead, he would fly to New York to speak with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the head of the planned New York Islamic centre, about moving the project.

 

Jones' announcement came after the pastor spoke in private with a local imam, Muhammad Musri, the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida.

 

But Musri told Al Jazeera later in the day that there was no actual promise to abandon the planned New York cultural centre, just an agreement from the New York imam to talk to Jones about it.

 

"[Jones] and I know that part of the deal can not be completed unless Imam Rauf signs this and there are no promises more than my full commitment to work towards that end," Musri said.

 

Event 'suspended'

 

Upon hearing the news, Jones said he had been lied to and he threatened to reconsider the decision to cancel the event.

 

"Given what we are now hearing, we are forced to rethink our decision," Jones said. "So as of right now, we are not canceling the event, but we are suspending it."

 

Jones did not say whether the Quran burning could still be held Saturday, but he said he expected Musri to keep his word and expected "the imam in New York to back up one of his own men".

 

Jones had never invoked the New York Islamic centre controversy as a reason for his planned protest. But he said on Thursday afternoon that he prayed about the decision and concluded that if the centre was moved, it would be a sign from God to call off the Quran burning.

there is no god except Allah, the All-Mighty, the Forbearing; there is no god except Allah, the Lord of the Mighty Throne;

there is no god except Allah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne.

He is an attention monger but who gave him the attention and showed he had a point? Muslims taking to the streets and chanting death to Christians, that's who.

Of course, piety is a favorite resort of the wicked.

Sorry, but it isn't Muslims that surround his little church with cameras, broadcasting his every word around the world. And he doesn't have a point, he has a bigoted message that appeals to the baser aspects of Western relations with Muslims. Just what percentage of Muslims are chanting death to Christians? I knew Christians who said we should nuke the entire Middle East. Are they representative of Christians?

Sadly he appeals to be baser side of the Islamic relations with the west as well. Instead of being seen as a nut job who absolutely no one, not even his own daughter takes seriously, he gets portrayed as an evil Crusader part of a vast Christian extremist conspiracy against the West etc. Basically it appeals to the Neanderthals of every group ( none excluded) while leaving normal sane people thinking what is this all about?

we belive in respect and peace and we expect people to do the same at least just like any human on earth ,

if he burns quran in his room at home all days , no one would care,,but outside in front of eyes all world with accurate date and time ,that means he mean to insult Islam and muslim and our god's word,

christianty comes from our place ,andhe represents nothing from it ,

this person is really greedy and sick,,he put everyone on risk.because of attention .
