Pastor Jones: ‘Fla. Imam Gave Me His Word’
Two high-profile religious issues briefly appeared to nullify each other Thursday as a Florida pastor announced he would cancel a planned Quran burning on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks — as long as a planned mosque and Islamic center was moved away from Ground Zero in New York or scrapped.
However, the imam and developer associated with the New York project denied reports that a deal was reached to move.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf issued a statement through his publicist saying earlier reports were false, and there had been no negotiations of the sort.
Jones, speaking to reporters again later in the afternoon, was adamant that he was promised that the Islamic center would be moved, and said he would be “very, very disappointed” if that didn’t happen.
Sharif El Gamal, the New York developer behind the Park 51 project in lower Manhattan, told the NewsHour late Thursday: “We are not moving.”
Asked about a meeting with Imam Feisal and the Florida pastor, he said: “I talk to the these people every day. It’s my building. I own it. I know nothing of a meeting.”
The Rev. Terry Jones, who leads a small congregation that espouses anti-Islam philosophy, announced at a news conference Thursday that he decided to cancel the extremely controversial burning of Islam’s holiest text — a pledge that drew strong rebuke worldwide, most notably from President Obama.

Three Things About Islam
Three surprising things you probably didn’t know about Islam.
This subject WILL affect you in the near future, so take the chance to inform yourself now – before it does.
Pastor Jones would have learned that lies are acceptable, have degrees, and are used often!
Examine the terms Taqiyya and Kitman via TheReligionofPeace.com
“…Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them. The two forms are:
Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true.
Kitman – Lying by omission…”
So the ping pong match continues… Regardless, if Pastor Jones burns the Qur’ans or not – the world has discovered the true “cult” of deception and hate as temper tantrums and public disturbances by Muslims continually erupt such as 3 Islamist Protesters Shot at Afghanistan Rally Against Koran Burning by NATO base forces in… guess where… (***Note still prior to any event as advertised by Petraeus.) in AFGHANISTAN!
Oh but look another “church” steps up – Westboro Cult Will Torch Koran… And US Flag. Again, not the best messenger, but the message is clear – Fear Not America!
