Terry Jones Burning the Qur’an - What is it any different from what Julian Assange has done with WikiLeaks?
Terry Jones pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center - a so-called church organization - is a New Testament Church based on the Bible, the Word of God. This is the "pastor" that announced his intent to burn a Qur’an on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2010. The U.S. government, put intense pressure on him to desist and eventually he called off his plans.
After receiving much attention at his attempt Jones in fact went on the Today Show and said, "We will definitely not burn the Qur'an, not today, not ever." But while the rest of the world's eyes were not focused on this issue he did burn a copy of the Qur’an, Islam’s holiest text, following a “trial” at his church on March 20th. In a six-hour ceremony called “International Judge the Koran Day” Jones convened a mock-judicial process in Florida that deemed the book “guilty of crimes against humanity,” then set a copy on fire.
But of course, you didn't see any mention of this on the mainstream media because it was intentionally ignored, in hopes that it would not bring about any violence.
