The Dove World Outreach Center may only represent a handful of people, but its incendiary plans haven’t emerged out of nowhere.
The role of Islam in America has become a hot button issue with social and political implications.
While most Americans would probably take issue with exhortations to burn the Koran, there is clearly widespread concern about the influence of Islam.
BBC-Sep 8, 2010
A US pastor says he is not “backing down” from plans to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of 9/11, despite international outrage.
“We are not convinced that backing down is the right thing,” said Terry Jones of 50-member Florida church, the Dove World Outreach Center.
- Is it a Conspiracy to increase distance between Christianity and Islam?
- How Muslims should respond?
- Why US Govt. can’t stop it by force? (Almost all major leaders of America has condemned it by words)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed Florida pastor for his “disgraceful” plan to burn the Quran.
Clinton noted that Terry Jones, the Florida pastor, is the head of a small congregation, and said she wished his plans to burn the Quran on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks hadn’t attracted so much media attention. But sadly, “that’s the world we live in right now,” she said.
Jones’s plans could potentially harm U.S. troops, she asserted, echoing a recent warning from Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.
The pastor’s plan doesn’t represent broader American views on Islam, Clinton declared. “It’s not who we are,” she said.
Clinton also slammed Jones’s plans on Tuesday night at a State Department dinner in honor of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
On a website of his church, the Dove World Outreach Church in Gainesville, Florida, Jones characterizes Islam as an “evil religion” and sharia law as an evil form of justice. He says that the plan to burn the Quran is retribution for the 9/11 attacks.
“We’re sending the message that we can go beyond talk. If you push us too far, we can go beyond talk. There’s a time the talk is over. There’s a time that we must stand up and battle,” Jones said.
Jones’s inflammatory speeches continue. He has called the Quran an evil book and urged all Muslims to convert. “We are burning the book. We are not killing someone. We are not murdering people. We are not dragging people out of the cars, who are doctors, and killing them. We are simply burning a book. The General needs to point his finger to radical Islamists and tell them to shut up. Tell them to stop. Tell them that we will not bow our knees to them,” he said.
Jones added: “I wish all Muslims would get saved. I wish they would all convert to Christianity. Christianity is the one and only true religion. The Quran, in our opinion, is an evil book.”
What is your Opinion?
What John Says?
Regarding the two brothers who were lynched in Sialkot. Then know that it is a great event the likes of which cannot be found anywhere except the days of ignorance, or in the persecution of Sahaba (RA).
Through this event, know that the evidence of Allah has been set against us where we have proven to be unaware of the laws of Quran. For Allah says;
“O you who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest you harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what you have done.” Surah Hujjurat, Ayat 6.
