Infamous US pastor Terry Jones has once again announced plans to desecrate Islam’s holy book Qur’an by burning it, a move likely to spark worldwide outrage.
Jones’ organization has announced that members of the group will hold an event, which they call “International Burning of 2,998 Qur’ans,” to mark the 12th anniversary of September 11, 2001 attacks in the US.
The 2,998 reportedly represents the number of people who were killed in the attacks that destroyed the twin World Trade Center towers in New York.
The radical Florida-based pastor burned copies of the Holy Quran on the anniversary of 9/11 attacks in 2010, which caused angry protests in several countries.
In November, 2012, an Egyptian court sentenced Jones, in absentia, to death for his role in the production of a blasphemous anti-Islam movie.
The $5-million US-made movie Innocence of Muslims was financed by more than 100 Zionist Jews, and sparked massive demonstrations across the Muslim world.
