Pastor Terry Jones: “I’m Not Responsible” for Muslim Slaughter in Afghanistan (Video)
Pastor Terry Jones went on to say that the radical Muslims will find any excuse to attack us.
He’s right about that, too.
11 people were killed by Muslims at the UN compound in Afghanistan on Friday after prayers. Two of the victims were beheaded. The Florida pastor said that the radical members of Islam will find any excuse to kill.
Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who oversaw the burning of a Koran last month, said he did not feel responsible for the violent protest at a United Nations compound in Afghanistan today that left at least 11 dead. Instead, he said the violence proved his point.
“We wanted to raise awareness of this dangerous religion and dangerous element,” Jones said. “I think [today’s attack] proves that there is a radical element of Islam.”
As for the 11 dead, which included seven U.N. staffers and guards, Jones told “Nightline” anchor Bill Weir, “We do not feel responsible, no.”
The deaths followed a protest march in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif today against the Koran burning. Jones supervised while another pastor, Wayne Sapp, soaked the Koran in kerosene and burned it.
