    Florida churchman burns copies of Koran

    India Gazette
    Sunday 29th April, 2012


    • Koran burnt in Gainesville, Florida
    • Churchman goes ahead with destruction of holy book
    • Pastor Terry Jones says he wants Iranian Christian freed



    Reports are emerging from Gainesville, Florida that pastor Terry Jones has burned more copies of the Koran.

    It has been reported that Jones carried out the burning while also destroying a depiction of the prophet Mohammed.

    The Gainesville Sun reported the Pentagon had asked Jones to desist from his controversial Koran burnings, in order to protect American soldiers in Afghanistan and other Islamist areas.

    The burning of the Koran on Saturday coincided with demands from Jones for Iran to release Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from prison.

    Nadarkhani faces execution in Iran.

    About 20 people attended Saturday's burning.

    US Koran burnings have already incited violence in northern Afghanistan.

    Incidents include the deaths of two US military personnel who were shot by a man wearing an Afghan border police uniform.

    It is very easy to incite people's ire. Just give them a cause and they are ready to kill or die for it.

    We have to understand what causes such to commit these acts. Well, the extremists do not do islam any favours. They gsend out the message that they live and act by the koran in the sense of killing infidels, suicide bombings ...etc...etc...
    The common majority of white folk believe that it is what's in the koran that dictates these actions, so what do you expect ??

    Until a prominent respected Muslim stands up and says otherwise, a lot of people, white or otherwise, will believe that is what is in the Koran, including me

    It won't matter who says what about the Quran - one must read it for oneself before being convinced either way.
