Jordan's Islamists Condemn Planned Quran Burning In U.S

Jordan's Islamic Action Front (IAF) condemned on Wednesday a Florida pastor who planned to burn the Quran on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, saying it is a "form of declaring a war on Muslims." Terry Jones, a pastor at the Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, plans to mark the 9/11 attack by burning copies of the Quran in his church on Saturday. "All Arab and Muslim governments should take a firm position regarding this crime that provokes all Muslims. They should also press the U.S. administration to stop this crime," the IAF, the political wing of Muslim Brotherhood, said in a statement obtained by Xinhua on Wednesday. The IAF urged peace-concerned entities to exert efforts to stop the plan to burn the holy Quran, saying it will have serious consequences on the global peace.
