alg koran terry jones1 Everybody Hates Jones

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is the latest to condemn the plans of a Florida church leader and his “International Burn-a-Koran” Day on September 11.

The Reverend Terry Jones insists the Constitution protects his right to publicly burn the book considered to be holy to Muslims.
He says he’s received death threats and now carries a gun.      Speaking at a dinner to break the daily fast during the Muslim
holy month of Ramadan, Clinton said she’s heartened by those who have condemned what she terms “this disrespectful, disgraceful
act.”

Jones’ plans for an “International Burn-a-Quran Day” were earlier criticized by Attorney General Eric Holder, White House
spokesman Robert Gibbs , actress Angelena Jolie and General David Petraeus . The U.S. commander in Afghanistan says “images of the burning of a Quran would undoubtedly be used by extremists”  to harm American troops.
