Asshole Christian Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center has canceled the planned burning of the Koran on Saturday and has instead agreed to take up his beef with the Antichrist Muslim leader Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is planning to build a mosque Islamic centre on the site of in the general neighbourhood of Ground Zero. (New York Times).
Could be interesting; would be way more interesting if it was the Monty Python Terry Jones, but no luck there. (Release the Bengal Tiger! Drop the 16 Tonne weight!) If you want interesting, check out NPR’s take on how the new Islamic centre got pegged — erroneously (duh) — as the Ground Zero Mosque in the first place here and here. (NPR: Watching Washington and On The Media).

Jones now says that he has single handedly stopped the construction of the Islamic centre, which is a total load of horseshit. This is unconfirmed at this time. Stay tuned, but not to me. Jesus.
