Dove World Outreach Center

As the 11th of September comes closer, a lot of people are waiting in anxiety about what the Dove World Outreach Center will do on the day. According to recent news, the Dove World Outreach Center is planning to burn Korans on the 11th of this month to mark the anniversary of the terror attacks that took place nine years ago.

The top US commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Patreus has warned the Dove World Outreach Center that such an act could jeopardize the whole effort in Afghanistan and could put the lives of American and foreign troops in danger. He said that such an act is exactly what the Taliban need to strengthen their support amongst the masses who are already demanding a complete withdrawal of US troops.

The Pastor Terry Jones is the one behind this. The man who has also written a book titled 'Islam is of the Devil', and Patreus has warned him that such an action by the Dove World Outreach Center is unacceptable saying, "Even the rumor that it might take place has sparked demonstrations such as the one that took place in Kabul yesterday. Were the actual burning to take place, the safety of our soldiers and civilians would be put in jeopardy and accomplishment of the mission would be made more difficult."

In the meanwhile, protests around the world have started to take place as people in Kabul and Jakarta get out on the streets to protest in front of their respective US embassies.
