Everybody burn Koran day images pictures FloridaQuran-burning plan in Florida, US, is likely to be cancelled. The event will take place today in The Dove World Outreach Center, a Florida non-denomination church, to commemorate the September 11 attacks.

LATimes reports:

"I can tell you 100 percent pastor Jones will not burn the Quran tomorrow [Saturday]," evangelist Kilari Anand Paul told the Orlando Sentinel outside the Dove World Outreach Center. "There will be no Quran-burning. Otherwise I would not be here." However, asked whether that meant Jones had abandoned the idea, Paul said, "I cannot speak for the future."

Late Friday, Jones was on a flight to New York, The Associated Press reported.

Paul, a new figure in the saga, and Jones, a fervently anti-Islam pastor and author of a book titled "Islam Is of the Devil," had given New York Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf two hours to call and tell them whether he will move the mosque from near ground zero. Rauf did not call by the deadline at 3:20 p.m., but Jones said he thought they would connect.
