Koran-Protest Preacher Terry Jones Banned From UK? (VIDEO)

Terry Jones, the Florida preacher who planned a mass burning of the Koran on September 11, could be banned from entering Britain under incitement and national security laws.

Jones has been invited by the far-right English Defence League (EDL) to share his views on Islam at a rally in Luton, Bedfordshire, on February 5, 2011.

However, Home Secretary Theresa May has said she will be “actively looking” at the case. She stated that Jones had been “on her radar for a few months” and that, as Home Secretary, she could ban his entry if he was a threat to national security.

Jones, who is pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, which has fewer than 50 members, told BBC 5 Live that he had “no intention” of burning the Koran in the UK.

Not surprisingly, plenty of British citizens are outraged at this invitation by the EDL, whose protests have a track record of degenerating into violence. The Home Secretary is under intense pressure to ban Jones. Let’s hope she succumbs to the pressure.

Here’s what Terry Jones had to say:

"Reverend" Jones' big mouth produced a lot of hate towards us in the Muslim world. Stupidity must be tolerated because of our free speech, but god, he's a disrespectful idiot that caused our country possible harm.

The language of islam in the mouths of islamic thugs in Denmark and England and other Euro countries; which spew murder, sedition, biggotry racism,liars, provocateurs, intimidation , fear mongering, hypocrisy is crying out for recognition.
Yes; and for training in group jumps from military transports over a loving welcoming Islamic land.
Good basis chutes and a picnic lunch (no pig) complimentary; naturally.

Good thing to ban this jones guy's entry into the UK. The man doesn't know what he is up against. His supporters are probably only thousands or, at most, a few hundred thousands. The Muslims number way over a billion; jones has only made them love the Quran more.

I can understand why Britain would want to ban him. Personally, I think that is unfair because now WE are stuck with him!

bob m, I rather doubt that preaching on the Care2 forum is going to actually result in any new converts.
