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."
The deaths followed a protest march in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif today against the Koran burning. Jones supervised while another pastor, Wayne Sapp, soaked the Koran in kerosene and burned it.
"We decided to put the Koran on trail," he told Weir. "I was the judge but I did not determine the verdict. I was just a type of referee so that people got their time to defend or condemn the Koran."
Jones said that a "jury" of people from all over Florida debated the radicalism of Islam, and the "Koran was found guilty."
"If the Koran was found guilty then there were four forms of punishment: burning, shredding, grounding, a firing squad," he said. "The one that the people chose was burning. That is why the Koran was burned after it was found guilty."

The Saudi ISLAMIC government seizes privately owned Christian Bibles and burns them every year.
ABCDisney news and our pro-Islamist president say NOTHING about this human rights abuse.
This guy is a dramatist looking for attention.
I personally would have preferred he shoot the Koran. Burning is so yesterday.
Paper and ink are worth more than human lives...where do I sign up for this enlightened belief system?
This is actually a pretty mild opposition to Christianity compared with a lot of the ‘stans.
So let me get this straight , eleven people died because one muslin book was burned? recently 600 Bibles were burned by muslins, does this mean we need to kill 6600 muslims to restore the honour to the Bible?
Unless we want this kind of animal behavior to start happening in America, we need to make sure that any mullah peaching hate be banned from our shores.
Many Muslims over there are a murder looking for a victim and any excuse will do.
Now all we need to do is execute the punishment.
There is a death penalty for any non-muslim (including Christians) who’d dare enter the segregated cities of Mecca and Medina.
That doesn’t seem so mild.
Add six zeros.
Whatever Islam is, we are in a religious war, and that’s the least our leaders ought to admit. But hell, “our leaders” are either Communists or RINOS.
We are told that moderate muslims abhor violence and jihad.
But that it is so easy to “radicalize” the muslims by engaging in such actions.
The moderates aren’t so non-violent after all. It’s akin to a “moderate nazi”.
How about taking it out on the warlords, chieftans, and princes who keep them broke, ignorant, and enslaved to Mohammed's death cult?
A change is gonna come.
He is 100% right as far as it proving his point.
There is also of course the New Jersey public worker who did burn the Koran at the time that this pastor orginally said he would do it. There is also video of a fascist angry mob surrounding guy and then he was fired for his personal protest from his government job. I think there still is a lawsuit on going.
The point of the protest in burning the Koran was a protest against the oppresive radical murderous behavior of those who use it as their excuse.
They did prove the point of the protest.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
We found out all we need to know about Islam on 9-11.
If I hadn't read it elsewhere earlier, I would not be aware that the frickin religion of peace zealots IN THE SAME COUNTRY THAT U.S. TROOPS ARE DYING IN sawed the heads off of two innocent UN workers there!
Nuke the freakin poppy fields and pull out of the 3rd century rat hole. Now. And I am absolutely serious. Level the poppy fields and shake the dust off our feet.

Any other Rights we should be flushing while we're at it?
If I were a Company Comander in Afghanistan, I would think about visiting Pastor Jones on my return and kicking the sh!t out of this attention whore. I don’t like rabid dogs but, recognizing their nature, I’m not going to poke them with a stick unnecessarily.
