Koran-burning pastor to be in New York on Sept. 11
Question of the Day
The Florida pastor who made world headlines and sparked deadly riots abroad after he threatened to burn a Koran — and later did so after putting the Muslim holy book on trial — is planning a visit to the Big Apple to speak out against radical Islam on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The Rev. Terry Jones, along with his associate, Pastor Wayne Sapp, will take their anti-Islamist message to New York City on Sept. 11 including a planned rally and visits to Ground Zero and the controversial site of the Park 51 "Ground Zero mosque," his group said in a statement posted online Wednesday.
Mr. Jones, who leads the Gainesville, Fla.-based Dove World Outreach Center and who heads the Stand Up America! non-profit organization, is also slated to make an appeals court appearance in a Detroit on Sept. 8 in an April case where a jury found that him and Mr. Sapp were likely to breach the peace in their attempt to stage a protest outside a Dearborn, Mich., mosque.
Dearborn is home to one of the nation's largest Arab-American communities. The men were jailed briefly after their jury trial before paying a $1 bond each in the case, which angered some free speech advocates, including the ACLU, who said their rights to peacefully protest at the Islamic Center of America had been denied.
Mr. Jones, the author of "Islam is of the Devil," also plans a rally on the steps of the Michigan capitol Sept. 7 and an open meeting at the Lansing, Mich., Radisson Hotel on Sept. 8.
