Remember Terry Jones, the handle-barred nutjob from Florida who raised a global ruckus when he threatened to burn a Quran on the 9th anniversary of 9/11? Â He’s at it again, or rather he was at it. Â After laying low for six months, Jones made good on his threat last weekend, staging a mock trial of the Quran, complete with a jury and a presiding judge (Jones himself). Â If found guilty of promoting violence (it was), the book would be burned (and it was).
Strangely, Jones’s shenanigans drew almost no press attention, and has so far not sparked worldwide riots. Â To his credit, a local Muslim leader said he decided to ignore Jones this time.
