Rev. Jones to proceed with Koran burning,US Troops at risk

Posted on 08 September 2010 by James Campero

Christian pastor from Florida named Reverend Terry Jones insists on going ahead with burning Koran on September 11 despite the warnings from different US Government officials.

Yesterday (Sept. 7), General David General Petraeus told that the planned on burning the Islam’s holy book Koran would only spur coup for the Taliban in Afghanistan and invite Muslims around world to go against America. Gen. Petraeus said the action could “endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort” in Afghanistan. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the idea a “disrespectful, disgraceful act” as she condemned the action of the religious leader Rev. Jones.

In Rev. Jones refusals, he said “How much do we back down? How many times do we back down?” Added,  “Instead of us backing down, maybe it’s to time to stand up. Maybe it’s time to send a message to radical Islam that we will not tolerate their behaviour.”

P.J. Crowley State Department spokesman refute Rev. Jones plans and said that the administration hoped Americans would stand up and condemn the church’s plan.
“We think that these are provocative acts,” Mr Crowley said. “We would like to see more Americans stand up and say that this is inconsistent with our American values; in fact, these actions themselves are un-American.”
