Pastor Terry Jones Finally Burns the Koran in Fla.; He Originally Planned to Burn It Last September 11

Terry Jones -- the Islam-hating Florida pastor who scuttled plans to burn the Koran last year -- changed his mind and had a copy of the Islam holy book set on fire yesterday (March 20, 2011), according to the New York Daily News website.

Jones supervised the book-burning on his Gainesville, Florida church grounds.

Originally planning to burn the Koran on September 11, 2010, Jones changed his mind, as a result of a call from Defense Secretary Robert Gates, warning him that the provocative act would endanger US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A small group of 30 people watched as Jones' fellow pastor Wayne Sapp set the book on fire.
