Pastor Terry Jones Says Afghan Murders and Beheadings Not His Fault

Pastor Terry Jones told reporters today that the violent protests, murder and beheadings in Afghanistan were not his fault.  He also said the attacks prove that there is a radical element in Islam.

He’s right.

ABC reported:

Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who oversaw the burning of a Koran last month, said he did not feel responsible for the violent protest at a United Nations compound in Afghanistan today that left at least 11 dead. Instead, he said the violence proved his point.

“We wanted to raise awareness of this dangerous religion and dangerous element,” Jones said. “I think [today’s attack] proves that there is a radical element of Islam.”

As for the 11 dead, which included seven U.N. staffers and guards, Jones told “Nightline” anchor Bill Weir, “We do not feel responsible, no.”
