Quran Burning in Florida on September 11: Personalities Reacted – The planned day for the Quran burning by Pastor Terry Jones’ Dove World Outreach Center is getting near. As the Quran burning day gets near, various high profile personalities are condemning the said plan of Terry Jones and is asking for sobriety.

“As an act of patriotism, the media should not cover the burning,” said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She also added that, “It’s regrettable that a pastor in Gainesville, Florida, with a church of no more than 50 people can make this outrageous and distressful, disgraceful plan, and get the world’s attention.”

Even Terry Jone’s old pastor back in Germany is condemning the Quran burning day planned action. “”We are surprised and shocked at the extreme radicalism being displayed [by Terry Jones] right now on this issue,” said Stephan Baar of the Christian Community of Cologne and former pastor of Terry Jones. He stated the comment during an interview by the Associated Press.

This same church kicked out Terry Jones in 2008 because of Jones’ alleged mishandling of the funds of the congregation. Jones’ own daughter said of the allegations of his father during his stint as a member of the church in Cologne.

If the Quran burning day plan will push through, Terry Jones and his church, the Dove World Outreach Center will burn hundreds of copies of the holy book Quran on September 11. The event dubbed as “Burn a Koran Day” or “Quran Burning Day” will be held at their small place of worship in Gainesville, Fla.

Actress Angelina Jolie added her view earlier and also condemns the action of Dove World Outreach Center. “I have hardly the words that somebody would do that to somebody’s religious book,” Jolie said while visiting and helping flood victims in Pakistan.

Those who already expressed their condemnations of the “Burn A Quran Day” includes top commander in Afghanistan Gen. David Petraeus, the Vatican, Attorney General Eric Holder, presumed presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, House Minority Leader John Boehner, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

I understand brainless people like terry jones can never understand this, but the people who are educated no matter he/she is a muslim or of any other religion will never be a part of this. ALLAH, the creator of this universe, will protect his sacred book!! I know this, terry jones have to born a million times before he wants to be successful in this.

  3. Remember:
    Every year such stupids try to check the power of Islam.But they are forgetting that Islam educate Peace and condemn such activities. We believe & respect all the other holy books and religions. No one can hurt Islam and Muslims by doing such activities.
