The protest is over Pastor Youcef Nodarkhani being imprisoned in Iran for giving up his Muslim faith and converting to Christianity.
On April 24th General John Allen, Commander of the International Assistance force and the U.S. Forces in Afghanistan called Dr. Jones over concern of retaliation against Military forces overseas.
Dr Jones' response was "Islamic Countries such as Iran and Egypt are killing Christians on a regular basis. Houses and Churches are burned, girls are kidnapped; raped and forced into Islam." He went on to say military personnel are trained, funded and well armed. People like Pastor Youcef did not volunteer, are not armed and have no one to fight for them.
Dr. Jones says the only way to prevent this protest from happening is to release Pastor Youcef from prison. The other would be a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Hilliary Rodham Clinton and him to discuss the plight of Christians, women and minorities in Muslim/Koran dominated countries. After the meeting they would give a joint press conference revealing the content of the discussion.
People are wondering if this is a plot for Dr. Jones to gain national attention. Many say he has done this in the past. Others are worried over the repercussion which could occur.
Muslims have said if the Koran along with pictures of Muhammad are burned they will enact Jihad on America.
Tension is already high in the U.S. with the one year death of Bin Laden coming up May 2nd.
The U.K. is looking at deporting Muslims back to their country. In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood is working to pass a law making it legal to have sex with their dead wives within six hours after their death.
The Muslim faith is one of hate and dominance over people. It should not be allowed to take over our country.
I interviewed Dr. Jones last year in Amarillo, Texas. I found him to be a person who believes in the Bible and Constitution. Listening to him speak I could not always agree with the manner he used but could not disagree with what he said. He is very blunt and to the point.
Will Dr. Jones along with others across the world carry out their protest:
I guess this Saturday will tell the story.
Feel free to go down to comments and let me know how you feel about this along with what repercussions could come from it.
