Stand back. Pastor Terry Jones has oil in his lamp and it’s burning, burning, burning. After recently incinerating the holy book of Islam, riots erupted in Afghanistan killing 12 people. This of course, made an impression on Brother Jones. In a statement, Mr. Jones demanded that the United States and United Nations take “immediate action” against Muslim nations in retaliation for the deaths. “The time has come to hold Islam accountable,” he said. After all the non-denominational minister was only upholding the American judicial process. You see, he had given the Koran on a fair trial.

“It is not that we burn the Koran with some type of vindictive motive,” Mr. Jones said. “We do not even burn it with great pleasure or any pleasure at all. We burn it because we feel a deep obligation to stay with the court system of America. The court system of America does not allow convicted criminals to go free. And that is why we feel obligated to do this.”

On the video, a pastor named Wayne Sapp is seen igniting a kerosene-drenched copy of the Koran with a plastic lighter. Members of the church watch the book burn for several minutes while several photographers snap pictures.

Finally, Mr. Jones says, “That actually burned quite well.”
