Burn a koran day

Jones ignited a firestorm of debate this week when he announced plans to burn copies of the Koran to mark the 9-11 anniversary.Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. commander in Afghanistan, warned the event could cost American lives and endanger the entire effort in Afghanistan.

"We realize that these actions will probably offend Muslims just like I’m offended when they burn the Bible or they burn the American flag," said Jones. "What we’re aiming at is that radical element we feel that is much larger than our politicians want us to believe."
