Quran-Burning Pastor Rallies Outside High School in Dearborn; No Arrests
Speaking today outside a high school in Dearborn, Quran-burning pastor Terry Jones said he was there in a show of solidarity with non-Muslim students that he alleges are being bullied by Muslim students. It was Jones’ fourth rally against Islam in Dearborn over the past year.
School officials have dismissed Jones’ claims about Edsel Ford High School in Dearborn. But Jones — joined by about a dozen supporters with anti-Islam signs — said the bullying reflects the way Muslims act when they grow in numbers. Jones said he was contacted by several parents of students at the high school, which has a growing Muslim population.
“As long as the community is small, they don’t cause any trouble,” Jones said about Muslims amid a heavy police presence outside Edsel Ford. “As the Muslim community grows … their intolerance of other communities grows.”
Dressed in his trademark faded black-leather jacket, blue jeans, and sunglasses, Jones said he’s also concerned about attempts by Muslims to restrict free speech. Jones has supported the anti-Islam film, “Innocence of Muslims,” that has sparked protests around the world, including four in metro Detroit.
“Criticism is part of Western society,” Jones said.
If this dumbass thinks Muslims are so violent, why does he keep coming back to Dearborn to provoke them?
I think I’ll buy something from a Muslim-owned store in Dearborn.
