Florida Pastor Has a Few New Enemies
Posted on Apr 6, 2011
Oh good, the nutty Rev. Terry Jones is near our HQ here in Los Angeles. The Florida pastor, who drew widespread ire earlier this month with his Quran-burning and Prophet Muhammad mock trial publicity stunts—sparking deadly protests in Afghanistan days later—arrived at LAX on Tuesday night to spread his toxic message, and he tallied up the death threats coming his way for the local media. —KA
CBS Los Angeles:
Rev. Terry Jones told reporters he had no plans to burn any more Korans upon his arrival at LAX on Tuesday night, but that he may hold another mock trial for the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
“We’ve had about 400 death threats,” he said, adding that Hezbolla, the Shia Muslim militant group, had put out a “reward out on my head for $2.4 million.”
