Florida Pastor Says He Will Not Burn Koran Sept. 11

Friday, 10 Sep 2010 07:44 AM


The pastor of a small Florida church said Friday he does not plan to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and hopes a Muslim imam will organize a meeting with those planning an Islamic center near the site of the New York attacks.

"Right now we have plans not to do it," Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Fla., told ABC's "Good Morning America."

"We believe that the imam is going to keep his word, what he promised us yesterday . . . We believe that we are, as he said, and promised, going to meet with the imam in New York tomorrow."
