US Pastor Plans to Burn 2,998 Quran Copies on
Sept. 11

Posted Image

The extremist US pastor Terry Jones announced plans to burn more copies of Islam’s holy book of Quran, a move which is likely to spark worldwide outrage.

Jones’ organization announced that members of the group will hold an event, which they call “International Burning of 2,998 Qur’ans,” to mark the 12th anniversary of September 11, 2001 attacks against the US.

The “2,998” reportedly represents the number of people who were killed in the attacks that destroyed the twin World Trade Center towers in New York.

The radical Florida-based pastor burned copies of the Holy Quran on the anniversary of 9/11 attacks in 2010, which caused angry protests in several Muslim and non-Muslim countries.
In November, 2012, an Egyptian court sentenced Jones, in absentia to death for his role in the production of a blasphemous anti-Islam movie and accusing him of desecrating Islam.

The $5 m. US-made movie Innocence of Muslims was financed by more than 100 Zionist Jews, and sparked massive demonstrations across the world.

Pastor Terry Jones plans mass Koran burnings to mark 9/11

Pastor Terry Jones — who was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court in November for his ties to a film about Muslims that sparked Islamic riots — is planning a mass Koran burning to mark the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11.

A press release from his organization — Stand Up America! — states that on Sept. 11, 2013, group members and followers will hold an “International Burning of 2,998 Korans” to “send Islam a very clear warning.” The 2,998 reportedly represents the number who died during the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

“On September 11th, 2013, to remember those who were murdered by radical Islam, and to send Islam a very clear warning that they will not get their foothold in the American Constitution as they have done in Europe, we will be holding an International Burning,” he said, in the release. “The radical hand of Islam shows itself with violence against anyone who dares to stand up and speak the truth. … We will not be silent.”

Mr. Jones is the Florida-based pastor of Dove World Outreach. He helped promote a film that sparked Muslim outrage around the world last year; a court in Egypt convicted and sentenced to death seven Coptic Christians believed to have aided with the creation of the film in November. The court sentenced Mr. Jones — in his absence — to death, also.

At the time, Mr. Jones told The Associated Press the death sentence only revealed the “true face of Islam,” which he said trounced free speech rights. He also vowed that his rhetoric against Islam would not change.

“We can speak out here in American,” he said, as quoted by the AP in November. “That freedom means that we criticize government leadership, religion at times. Islam is not a religion that tolerates any type of criticism.”

Go ahead. But I'm sure no one will sentence you to death.

So these lsamic extremists have no problem with mass murder of innocent people but they object to book burnings?

Yeah that's why they're called "extremists" and generally nut jobs. What they are has little or rather nothing to do with Islam at all so even extremists is the wrong word for them. Calling these idiots islamists or even jihadists is wrong. I don't remember what the correct term for these arse monkeys was though. I'm sure there are several that fit the bill.

Are you equating them having problems with something to them wanting someone to be put to death?

Are you for real? Some serious leaps in logic with you it seems.

So does the bible. So does the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

WTF is your point or is this just jumping to stupid conclusions night?

You think the Quran or Islam is responsible for 9/11? Well...at least you're not one of those inside job guys...not far off though.

How do you interpret this?

Quran 4:95 -"Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-" This passage criticizes "peaceful" Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah's eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that "Jihad" doesn't mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man's protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).
