13 questions for Terry Jones

TheDC: How does it feel to have the President of the United States so upset about something you’re planning to do?

TJ: I got a call by the Secretary of Defense and some people spoke out – in other words, they all realized that radical element of Islam, what Islam was threatening. They have definitely dealt with those threats very seriously that, if we were to go through with our Koran-burning, that the radical element of Islam would retaliate. So, I think, of course, whether people wanted to admit it or not, just that involvement and the level of government already tells you: with certain elements of Islam, we definitely have a problem. We need to watch it, we need to monitor it. We have to decide how much do we back down or when do we draw a line.
