Terry Jones, the Koran-burning pastor of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, is planning a little road trip. The day after tomorrow — Good Friday — he and some of his supporters plan to demonstrate in front of a mosque in Dearborn, Michigan. The City of Dearborn does not want Rev. Jones to come, and city officials are doing their best to get a court injunction to keep him away from the mosque.
In the news report below, you’ll see the mayor of Dearborn explain his take on the situation. The news announcer throws in her own two cents’ worth, commenting that the fact that the demonstrators will be armed shows a lack of peaceful intent. But if I had several hundred death fatwas outstanding against me, I’d probably be packing heat, too.
