Burning the Koran Quron Day
Pastor Terry Jones and his Burning the Koran Day have caused a media storm with journalists and news reporters from around the world. Being broadcast worldwide, and in real time is the journey of one mans peaceful protest threat of burning a holy book, as he battles to make his point to unpeaceful renegade extremists.
Lots of political negotiation is done around the world, with either sides trading of concessions,a and bargaining from a position of strength. Although normally we are subjected to years of stand offs, Paster Terry Jones has achieved a rite of passage straight to solving one of the biggest questions about if it is acceptable to build a Mosque at ground zero.
The president of the untied states has expressed his own beliefs that it should be acceptable for the mosque to be built, and that people should respect Americas tolerance and acceptance of all spiritual and religious faiths. This has struck a raw nerve with most Americans, who disagree, and although respect the Muslim faith, still feel it is inappropriate.
Pastor Jones has taken an important piece of symbolism, history and culture, in the form of the Quron,(Koran) and with what would have been very disrespectful, but still peaceful none the less, negotiated towards a very important topic that if successful, will make Pastor Jones a hero, amongst almost most Americans.
As I've finished this article, The pastor has arrived in New York to talk about movement of at the Islamic community center with Feisal Abdul Rauf the imam.
Whatever the outcome from this Pastor Terry Jones and his Burning the Koran Day will be considered years from now, one of the best pieces of modern day religious negotiating.
