"Wherever Americans are Seen, They Will Be Killed"

For 30 years a missionary in Europe, Pastor Terry Jones is
resolute in his plans to burn Qurans on 9/11.

He has 20 of them, all donated by concerned parties
worldwide, ready and waiting for the flames.

A trailer with a banner on it reading "Islam is of the
devil," is stacked with nearly a cord of firewood.

He goes about his business on the 20-acre compound of The
Church of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville,
Florida, with a .40 cal. pistol holstered and ready. He has
received more than 100 death threats since he announced his
plans in July.

The FBI, the Department of Justice and the local police
department have tried to influence him to abandon his stated
purpose of burning Islam's most holy book, the Quran, on the
9th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center,
the Pentagon and an aborted attempt on either the White
House or the Capitol building that ended when the hijacked
jetliner crashed in a Pennsylvania field after passengers
rebelled and fought back.

Mr. Jones thinks that Islam is on a mission to dominate the

Asked by a network interviewer "What would Jesus do?" he
calmly replied, "I think Jesus would not run around burning
books, but I think he would burn this one."

He is the author of a book titled "Islam Is Of The Devil."

Mr. Jones is a Pentacostal pastor who often sees himself and
his congregation of 50 in mortal combat with Satanic forces.

Alachua County tax officials see him in a somewhat different
light. They say his activities violate the doctrine of tax
exemption for religious institutions because he engages in
for-profit business and expresses political opinions from
his pulpit.

They have revalued the church's property at $l.6 million,
while a local newspaper says the affected 17,000 square-foot
area is worth only about $135,000.

A top Islamic cleric in Afghanistan said, "Wherever
Americans are seen, they will be killed."
