Koran Burning: Terry Jones Burn A Quran Day Not Cancelled


Koran Burning: Terry Jones Burn A Quran Day Not Cancelled – General Petraeus has warned that Terry Jones’ national burning of the Quran could lead to the death of dozens of American troops. The same extremists that the church claims to be sending a message to are the ones that Petraeus warns about. He stated that the burning of the Muslim holy book “would undoubtedly be used by extremists in Afghanistan, and around the world, to inflame public opinion and incite violence.”

These sentiments have been shared by a number of officials in the US. Terry Jones, the pastor behind the burning of the holy Quran, has come under fire after calling for Christians to burn the book in a “showing of religious tolerance.” Although his actions might be a direct contradiction to the words he is preaching, Jones does not seem to see the irony in his statement.

The burning of the Quran would undoubtedly anger extremists in the Middle East, who would see the gesture as a slap in the face. It is wrong for Jones to try to drum up support for his church through the burning of another religion’s holy scripts.

In 2005, riots ensued after a report by Newsweek claimed that a Pentagon investigation uncovered that military interrogators tried to flush the Quran down a toilet to anger those they were interrogating.

Then, in 2005, a Danish newspaper printed cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad, who is never supposed to be depicted, further escalating the situation. The burning of the book would likely lead to more civil unrest. Despite the warnings Jones has refused to cancel the protest set for Saturday at his Dove World Outreach Center, a church that espouses an anti-Islam philosophy saying,
“How much do we back down? How many times do we back down?.Instead of us backing down, maybe it’s to time to stand up. Maybe it’s time to send a message to radical Islam that we will not tolerate their behavior.”


  1. It is very unfortunate to see such events being planned in a country which considers it to be the epitome of tolerance. Freedom of speech can never and should never be used as an excuse to play with the sentiments of millions of Muslim around the globe. The burning of the Holy Quran would do nothing but increase the gap between Muslim Americans and Christian Americans and lead to even more tensions. Though Rev. Terry Jones is doing this to express his rage and anger, he miserably fails to realize that the Holy Quran does not only talk about the Prophet Muhammad but also about Jesus Christ and Mary. In fact, chapter 19 of the Holy Quran is titled Maryam (Mary). By burning the Holy Quran, he fails to recognize that in reality he is also bringing shame to his own religion and its teachings. Jesus Christ, who only showed compassion and love to everyone, could never have taught such as thing alislam.org/topics/reply/Love-for-All-Pamphlet.pdf). No world religion, whether it is Islam or Christianity, teaches bringing disgrace to the beliefs and spiritual possessions of the fellow human beings. In fact, every religion teaches love, tolerance, and respect. It is very important that each one of us recognizes what the future would hold if these sort of events are not criticized and condemned. It will only lead to further hostilities and hatred between people of different beliefs and it should never be entertained. In short, no matter what your religious affiliations are, such acts of indecency should never be tolerated and should be condemned in the most reasonable and peaceful manner.

    • But it is ok to just stand back and watch islamic extreemist burn our country’s flag? I am a soldier in the US Army. I have been stationed in Iraq. For me it was hard going into that country and doing what I had to do for such ungrateful people. I thank god everyday that I never have to go back to that disgusting place. I for one fully endorse Mr. Jones in his decission to burn the Quran.

      • Mate maybe because you people went into their country killing innocent people. you people are the disgusting ones. also what did you have to do kill them? they didn’t want you in their country. also mybe u should read the quran and then you will understand

  2. What!? This is crazy and anyone who is a willing participant is also crazy. I was also in the military and am now working as a civilian in Afghanistan. What good will this do to anyone. It will make any Muslim, back home or out here, hate us more than they already do. I don’t know about you but I would rather not add gas to an already blazing fire. I really hope no one shows up to this and shows the world that we Americans are accepting of all religions and diversified backgrounds.

  3. Don’t burn it. Learn something about it! Qur’an Reading Day 9/11

    Join the event on Facebook, Everywhere USA

    Sign up to pledge to read from the Qur’an this September 11 as an act of solidarity with your Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. Not to take away from the solemn dignity that all people deserve who were affected by the horrific violence of terrorists that day, but take at least a moment to learn something new about a world tradition that has given us all so much, and to counter the awful sentiments of hatred and ignorance that can drag any of us down if we aren’t careful.

  4. Before burning, i must request all the people who willing to do it, to read it once to See how many times Quran mentioned about Jesus and Mother Marry.

    By doing this you are giving some one a valid reason to hate you.

  5. Burning a Quran in fact is a slap in the face of all religions,Christian,Jews and Muslims.If that so called pastor is indeed a christian he would not think for a second to anounce what he anounced because he is burning Gods words coming through the mouth of Jesus,Moses,and Mohamed.All the last three religion preach love,peace and tolerance and by that pastor palning to burn a holy book of all religions he will be burnning his own ” faith” and whoever follow it.

    • Amen to that. U knw here we have tremendous respect 4 one another and the ones who dnt have respect are so in the minority, bt its okay. It is sad to c wht is happenin in other countries. We are nt a perfect country, bt we are truely blessed. U gt muslims givin mslms a bad name, christian, jews etc, given their religion a bad name. I suppose we’ll have tht…peace be upon u

    psalm 25:4:7

    Fight kill those who believe not in allah nor the lastday nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by allah and his messenger ( mohammed ) nor acknowledge the religion of truth ( Islam ) even if they are the people of the book ( christians and jews ) until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued , Sura 9:29 , Allah,s apostle was asked what is the best deed he replied To believe in allah and his apostle ( Muhammed ) The Qustioner then asked what is the next in goodness he replied To Participate in Jihad in allah,s cause Sahih Bukhari 1:2:25 , But when the when the forbidden months are past tyhe fight and slay the pagans where ever ye find them and seize them and beleaguer themand lie in wait for them in evry stratagen
    ( of war ) but if they repent and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity then open up the way for them for allah is Often forgving most merciful and if one of the idolaters seek protection from you grant him protection till he hears the words of allah then make him attain his place of safety this is because they are a people who do not know , Sura 9:5 , Muhammed last words at his death bed were turn the pagans ( Non Muslims ) out of Arabia peninsula .

    john 5:29 and shall come forth they that have done good unto the ressurection of life ( heaven ) and they that have done evil unto the ressurection of damnation ( hell )

    These Statements are make very clear that the God of the Quran is not the God of The Bible so who is the god of the Quran and who The God of the Bible , i know the Outcome no offense to you muslims , the god of the Quran is Satan him self in Disguise mixing Truth with lies , the Quran is Full of errors , to find this out study to Correct thy selfs to get out of the snare of the devil . for i know what i say ….. Question Quran says
    isa ( jesus is Concieved by the spirit of god in the Virgin mary and is called Eight times in the Quran son of man , this word means son of humans a son is given us by god the Bible says a son is given to us … second Question if the spirit of god was with jesus as The Quran says why is it then denieh to say Allah dont have a son . think very clear about this , because its a contradiction , for Satan is the one who denieh,s who jesus is ……. God in the flesh ,

    The religion of Islam is Antichristian the Djadall because according the Bukhari the Imam mahdi brings a seven year peace and come,s with jesus back and destroy,s things , while the Bible says its the antichrist and false prophet , Fake jesus ====== Imam mahdi is the antichrist . so islam is not from god but from the devil him self mixing truth with lies , for it was not Gabriel what he have seen but Satan pretend to be Gabriel , for the Bible says no marvel even Satan can transform him self as a angel of Light , my Encourage to all Muslims is to study the whole Quran and whole Bible to see the diffrents about the Books …… Sallam allah cum inshallah … for who those not ackwoledge the son those not know the father is antichrist , this makes muhammed a false prophet for he denieh it that God had a son , but it is not muhammmed who gets the blaim but Satan for it was he who fooled Muhammed , Why Study history about Muhammed who he realy is , Read the whole Bukhari and whole hadith and you shall see muhammed had Evil desire,s for he plunderd and killed all who where Againts him ….. Simple answer to find out the truth read all books ….. Bible King james Version …. Quran …. Hadith …. Bukhari ……

    sallam allah cum inshallah

  8. We are at war with all who practice islam, period. Or at least we should be. Read the history of the muslims, going back to the 7th century before you say anything.
    The so called islam “religion” is no religion at all.
    It is a lifestyle recommended by a deranged man called mohammad, who was [ recorded history ] a pedophile,a homosexual, a murderer. Please convince me that he is the equal to Jesus Christ ………..
