Pastor Terry Jones wants to burn 3000 Copies of Quran in Polk County - Fox News Tampa Bay
He burned a Koran in Gainesville and got international attention. Now,PastorTerry Jonesis upping the ante. He plans to burn 3,000 in Mulberry on September 11, and says he doesn't care if it sparks violence in theMiddle East.
"When do we stop reciting the truth because something might happen?" Pastor Jones told FOX 13 by phone.
Three years ago, when Jones burned the Koran, riots broke out in Afghanistan and people died.
The head of theWorld MuslimCongress in Dallas is concerned that we may see even more violence this time.
"I hope that as a reminder, radical Muslims elsewhere in the world don't take revenge on our embassies or fellow Americans anywhere," said Mike Ghouse.
Ghouse and other members ofhisgroup will be in Mulberry on September 11 as well. He will be joining Suzanne Carter-Moore, who started the Facebook page "Not in Mulberry."
"We can stand to protest radical Islam...but I don't think we should be burning theholy bookof an entire population," she said.
