Burn the Koran preacher sentenced to death

An Egyptian court convicted by fatwa Florida-based Pastor Terry Jones of blasphemy, and sentenced him to death.

Mr. Jones is the pastor of Dove World Outreach, a church of less than 50 members in Gainesville, Fla. He has said he was contacted by the filmmaker to promote the controversial film "Innocence of the Prophet" by its producers, as well as Morris Sadek, a conservative Coptic Christian in the U.S. who posted the video clips on his website. The court convicted others involved in the distribution of the film about the Prophet Mohammed today.

In a telephone interview Wednesday, Jones said the ruling "shows the true face of Islam" – one that he views as intolerant of dissent and opposed to basic freedoms of speech and religion.
