There seems to be a fair bit of desperation in pastor Terry Jones announcement to burn Korans on 9/11. His church has been under some pressure in an area where the Muslim population spreads rapidly and where city councilmen are easily corrupted and intimidated. However, Larry Jones seems to be quite switched on, he Â has read Bat Ye’or and knows about dhimmitude, so I guess we’ll be hearing more about him.
Here are some excerpts from PuffHo just to keep you up to date:
Members of a church in Gainesville, Florida are planning to commemorate the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 by burning Korans.Â The “International Burn A Quran Day,” is just the latest in anti-Islamic protests that the Dove World Outreach Center holds each year on 9/11.
The church stirred up controversy last year when in July, they put out signs that read “Islam Is Of The Devil,” which is also the title of the pastor’s book.
The church has been known for its controversial nature sinceÂ it was founded by Jones in 1981. The Dove World Outreach Center has also been very outspoken about abortion, gay marriage and homosexuality. Members of the congregation met on August 2 to protest the election of Gainesville’s first gay mayor. They have come under scrutiny in the past for picketing with signs that said “No Homo Mayor.”

A Pelosi Target:
If protesting wasn’t enough controversy for the church, it has also recently become the subject of investigation over its alleged for-profit enterprise. Jones uses the church as a tax-exempt business and makes profits from its unpaid members in various practices, including merchandising and eBay sales. (Imagine that! In the land of free enterprise!)
Pastor Terry Jones has quite a fight on his hands. This is from his website Islam is of the Devil
In the spring this year, our mortgage was called in without warning. Although we have been their client for many years, in perfectly good standing, RBC Bank demanded that we repay $140,000 in 60 days.
And who’s behind it?
Muslim infiltration on a large scale: Senator Larry Shaw is chairman for Hamas front CAIR State Senator Larry Shaw is also raising money for un-indicted co-conspirator, Muslim Brotherhood-linked, FBI-banned CAIR.(Atlas) Larry Shaw is a Muslim from North Carolina
RBC Bank gave no reason for their demand, but they are headquartered in Raleigh, N.C. North Carolina has a strong Muslim presence including state senator Larry Shaw who is also the chairman of the terror-linked Muslim group CAIR â€“ an unindicted co-conspirator to the largest Islamic terror financing conviction in the U.S. It is part of the RBC Canada family that has entered into Islamic Sharia financing in recent years.
Our church is certainly not Sharia compliant. Banks that offer Sharia Finance prefer only to do business with Sharia compliant clients. What does this mean for the future of America’s churches and businesses that do not please the growing Moslem population? Some examples would be selling pork or alcohol – not allowed under Sharia. We managed to fight for a year’s extension, but now dhimmi Cottons All Lines Insurance has sent notice of a cancelation of our insurance.
Then there is the Burn Permit. When we first applied for it, there was no problem. Now the City Council has voted to deny it, even though it is our 1st Ammendment Right. Here is Dr Jones’ recent statement to the media about this decision:
we are not surprised. It is a typical example of how government bows to pressure. We met with the Fire Marshal and agreed to all their stipulations. There was no legal reason to turn us down. It was strictly a political move. We will on 9/11 still burn Korans.
… in Gainesville, Florida. Or shall we call it Dhimmiville, Florida? Â (Read it all)
The leftarded NYT reports that death threats now come in regularly for Terry Jones.
“We have to be careful,” he said. He tapped a holster on the right hip of his jean shorts; it held a .40-caliber pistol, which he said he was licensed to carry. “The overall response,” he added, “has been much greater than we expected.” (NY:Pastor’s Plan to Burn Korans Adds to Tensions – NYTimes.com)
The Â CNN echo-chamber howls along, or better: they hide behind Akbar Ahmed, who tells us thatÂ ‘Burn Quran Day’ is an outrage to Muslims and that “not a single American would be safe in Pakistan”, – Â but Jones’ burning will have great symbolic significance to a “Muslim world already feeling under attack by the United States” etc etc, even goes on to scare the Jews: “no one can say who will be next. I was not surprised, therefore, when I heard Jones recently agree, when asked to do so in an internet podcast interview, to burn “a couple of copies of the Talmud” too.”
Then comes the Founding Fathers:
The Founding Fathers read and honored the same Quran that Jones is now seeking to burn. Thomas Jefferson kept the same Quran in his personal collection and it informed his decision to host the first presidential iftaar during Ramadan. Â (Read it all, its pretty creepy)
