Citing the proposed relocation of the Ground Zero Mosque project as a “sign from God”, Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove Outreach Ministries in Gainesville, Florida announced just a few minutes ago that they had cancelled Saturday’s Quran burning event.
Shortly before 5 pm eastern, Pastor Jones appearing with a local Imam made the announcement which was carried by Jacksonville CBS affiliate WTEV. Imam Muhammed Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida appeared with Jones and announced that like many Americans he was opposed to the location of the mosque, and would be heading to New York City with Jones to have talks with the Muslim leadership there.
