6. I'm betting that the little notice from Florida that he would be
billed for all the security required was the icing on the cake.

It's a good thing, hope it's true.

What if he does meet with the Imams and something akin to a peace accord comes about. :crazy:

Man, am I some kind of cockeyed optimist or just plain crazy.

20. How bittersweet
The Quran burning ceased only when an imam conceded to move the NY mosque elsewhere?

Ugh, I still feel quite disappointed inside.

26. How about if they moved the community center (not a mosque) from 2 blocks away
to right across the street.

27. BBC (Thursday): US pastor Terry Jones cancels Koran burning
From the BBC Online
Dated 2:06 pm PDT Thursday, 9 September

US pastor Terry Jones cancels Koran burning
The pastor of a small US church who wanted to burn copies of the Koran has cancelled his protest.

Terry Jones said he was calling off the Florida event after the group behind a planned mosque close to Ground Zero in New York agreed to relocate it.

Mr Jones had said the burning would be a stand against terrorism, but his plan was internationally condemned.

President Barack Obama had warned Mr Jones the event would be "a recruitment bonanza" for al-Qaeda.

35. Just checked fr (so you won't have to) and many are already saying the Imam lied
Edited on Thu Sep-09-10 05:17 PM by Fuzz
One even said this:

This is the best outcome we could have hoped for...Pastor Jones should go on every show and say that Imam Rauf promised to move the mosque, whether Rauf did or did not. Then they will HAVE to move the mosque, and if they dont even the media will slam him for bad faith. BRILLIANT!
