Just burn the damn things and get it over with already ok WHO CARES they just burnt a Christian man in Egypt alive so fuck their Qur’an…..

The head of a small Florida church says he’ll back off his plan to burn the Qur’an on Sept. 11 if he can meet with the organizers of a controversial proposed mosque in New York City.

Rev. Terry Jones, leader of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, has been at the centre of criticism over his plans to burn the Muslim holy book on the ninth anniversary of the attacks on the U.S.

Jones said on NBC’s Today show that he won’t burn the book if he gets the meeting he is seeking Saturday.

Jones’s plan has been condemned by President Barack Obama and other political leaders, along with top military officials, who have said burning the Qur’an would provoke militants in Afghanistan and put the lives of international soldiers in jeopardy.

On Thursday, Jones said he had decided to call off the burning because the person behind the effort to build an Islamic centre near Ground Zero had agreed to move its location.

But later Thursday night, Jones said the imam he thought he had a deal with “clearly, clearly lied to us” about moving the centre.
