Pastor Terry Jones’ Body Language Shows Trepidation and Reluctance But He’s Painted Himself Into A Corner Making Him Likely To Proceed With His Koran Burning

Based on his body language and speech pattern Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones  shows considerable fear and trepidation. He does NOT appear to  want to go through with his act of burning Korans. He does not show someone who is 100 percent behind doing what he proposes to do. You can see what I am speaking about as you look at this video of the Pastor during his ABC Nightline  interview.

http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/terry-jones-burning-korans-meant-warning/story?id=11578228

 The perspiration pattern on his face as well as his stuttering and stammering  constant uh;s , and hesitations as well as the  stumbling over words,  shoulder shrugging and

the lip licking  are all indications that he shows trepidation. He knows what he is doing is not right but he said he just wanted to make a statement.  

Initially,  he most likely  did this publicity stunt  as a way to bring  attention to himself and to his small church. He said he did  as only a  “Warning.” In fact he tried to leave himself a way out by stating that he is still praying on it and that if he gets a sign from Lord he will not go through with his plan.

 But now it has grown into something that is way over his head with world leaders weighing in. He has clearly heard the message from  President Obama  to  Secretary of State Clinton  to  General Petreas. Even the Vatican that said  “ Don’t do it.”  The NYPD and the FBI  have openly told him not to do it.

He has even seen what his actions have already created with Muslims now burning the American flag in retaliation.

 Even though his  body language  and speech patterns on the Nightline interview with his sweating and stammering clearly indicate  he knows  what he is going to do is  not right, he  has somehow managed  to convince himself that if Jesus  was alive, he would burn the Koran. This distorted thinking along with the eyes of the world upon him has pushed him into a psychological  corner. This means that he will defiantly go through with his act.

It is much like telling a teenager not to do something. They know you are giving them the right advice. But  because  they have a  stronger desire to rebel,  assert their independence,  and express themselves, they go  ahead and do the wrong thing  anyway. It is no different in this situation. The world has said NO, and out of rebellion,  Pastor Jones  is going to do it anyway.

His words indicate that he knows the consequences for his actions. He  stated that he and his congregation were  willing to die for his belief. He said he will even be carrying arms. He has herd the deth threats against him and knows there may be bloodshed. So  now he may very well  feel that he doesn’t have a choice but to go on with his Koran burning as scheduled.

In Pastor Jones mind,  saving face appears to be  more important than ever. He sees the eyes of the world watching him. If he backs down he will think that the world is seeing him as being cowardly.  Little does he know that the act of desecrating one’s  holy bible is cowardly.

An ideal situation would be that  someone whom he respects who is not like minded  share with him  that going ahead with his plan is cowardly. He needs to hear that if he backs down the world will not see him as being cowardly or weak. On the contrary, he  will  be seen as a person who did not incite violence but could help create peace. 

In a Democracy, one does have the Right to Free Speech. However, you can’t yell” fire”  in a crowded building.  This is exactly what Pastor Jones is doing here. He is screaming “fire”  in an  already flammable world where tensions run high. He is inciting the flames of hatred against America amongst Muslims worldwide.  

Pastor Jones did what he wanted to do- bring worldwide attention to  himself and to his church. But now he needs to back away from taking his publicity stunt to the next level and creating a stage for world violence.

Unfortunately unless there is some bonfire ordinance in Gainesville, Florida  that you can’t have an open fire  between 6 and 9 pm on a  Saturday night the Pastor will go through will his unfortunate  act. Only an act of  law or an act of God could prevent this event from taking place. If it does take place, the repercussions will be frightening.

  1. I don’t understand why he got press in the first place. If the media didn’t run to the aide of this nut case and keep running to him, no one would have ever heard about him or what he was planning to do ,and then he probably wouldn’t have done anything

  2. The 10 international medical aid workers listed below were murdered without provocation in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan, on August 5, 2010, without a single Koran being burned.

    Dr Tom Little, 61, Delmar, NY, optometrist
    Dr Thomas Grams, 51, Durango, CO, dentist
    Dr Karen Woo, 36, UK, surgeon, engaged to be married
    Dan Terry, 63, WI, getting aid from org to those in need
    Cheryl Beckett, 32, Knoxville TN, nutritional gardening
    Glen Lapp, 35, Lancaster, PA, nurse
    Brian Carderelli, 25, Harrisonburg, VA, videographer
    Daniela Beyer, 35, Chemnitz, Germany, translator
    Mahram Ali, 50, Wardak province, security
    Jawed, 24, Panjshir province, cook

    The lone survivor – the Afghan driver – was spared because he quoted the Koran.

    2008: 4 International Rescue Committee workers were murdered by islamoterrorists outside of Kabul. Also not involving Korans.

    2009: Ft Hood mass murder by a Muslim in the name of Islam was not preceded by burning Korans and was attributed to workplace stress.

    2009: The attempted Christmas Day bombing (the date coincidence of course) was not provoked by burning Korans.

    2010: The attempted mass murder of anonymous people in Times Square was not provoked by burning Korans.

    2001: Mass murder of close to 3000 people by Muslims in the name of Islam without a single Koran being burned.

    On and on.

    How many outreach programs from the Muslim world work with non-Muslims in any capacity in the US?

    Is there a single outreach program sponsored by the Muslim world anywhere in the world that has absolutely nothing to do with Islam?

    The issue has nothing to do with burning the Koran. The Muslim world would have heard nothing about it if the media wasn’t pushing islamophobia propaganda.

    Evil begets evil. There is no need for incitement – only to find justification for the act. And saying that anything anyone in the US does or doesn’t do will prevent or provoke what hate-filled islamoterrorists do is giving them that justification. Worse, it is giving them power. It is showing them that their burning of the American flag (which no one in the media has a problem with) and yelling Death to America! works (even though no one has actually done anything) and that the American media is more than willing to push the “islamophobia” propaganda for them.

    The pastor has the right to do whatever crazy thing he wants within the law on his property. Just like the 9-11 mosquites have a right to do whatever they want.

    The real issue: Why is the media pushing the man’s propaganda at this very moment? And why aren’t they telling the Muslim world the full truth about him, starting with the fact that he speaks for only 50 people in a nation of over 300M and has been talking anti-Islam for years.

    Who do you believe is responsible for causing outrage in the Muslim world: the pastor or the media?

  3. Three days before the 9th anniversary of a Muslim act of war on the United States–a predominantly Christian country with clear separation of Church and State–and what is CNN doing?

    1-Focusing on the pastor in Florida — with a congregation of 50 — who has gotten his message across without burning anything and has no intention of burning anything (and probably never did). He has already succeeded beyond his wildest dreams and CNN is airing proof.

    2-Showing video of the ubiquitous group of able-bodied men in the Muslim world doing nothing other than burning the American flag, chanting Death to America!, and burning images of a Christian pastor – all the while urging Americans not to exercise their First Amendment rights so islamoterrorists aren’t incited.

    Islamoterrorists do not need incitement and CNN is showing video proof of it.Of what significance would their burning of a US flag made in China be if CNN never aired it?

    Who really owns CNN and why is there never any mention of CNN’s own role in perpetuating anti-American propaganda?

    Nothing has happened (just like nobody can stop the 9-11 mosque) and the islamoterrorists are already at it.

    Proving the pastor’s point in spades.

    3-Explaining the 5 pillars of Islam – one of which is giving of alms.

    Then why is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in such distress? Why are infidels – the US – giving Pakistan so much aid when Muslims countries don’t even care?

    Ali Veshi glosses over the “oath” which declares Islam to be the ONLY religion and all non-Muslims infidels. Islam itself designates itself as Muslim vs non-Muslims and that is not going to change no matter what non-Muslims do or say. And that is what non-propagandized people understand and why this alleged “outreach to the West” has no basis in reality.

    The bridge would need to be built by those “moderate Muslims” who do not seem to exist – not a man who refuses to call HAMAS an islamoterrorist group and who uses two different titles for his book with different meanings depending on the translation.

    That to commonsense folk is deception – not bridge building.

    4-Hyping the man behind the mosque’s appearance on Larry King Live (no Larry) tonite.

    No wonderments as to why the man has waited until 3 days before 9-11 anniversary to speak. And no one asking why the media hadn’t demanded he speak before he left for his tour of the ME on American taxpayer money.

    5-Talking to Michael Cromartie from the Ethics Public Policy Center (also a “senior adviser to the Pew Forum on Religious and Public Life” – recall the recent is barry a Muslim poll they misrepresented) who leads with the earth-shattering enlightenment that “modern Islam in American has a PR problem”. Not that CNN and MSM isn’t doing their darndest. And then he says:

    The problem for modern Islam is that you’ve got a small, very small percentage of Muslims who have become violent, and have used violence to advance their cause. And they get all the publicity.

    Meanwhile, all the moderates, who are the largest percentage of Muslims everywhere, don’t get the attention they should.

    And whose fault is it?

    And if that were true – why are “moderate Muslims” letting the “non-moderates” hijack their faith? Why aren’t the “moderate Muslims” at the very least embarrassed that a very small amount of people can speak for more than a billion Muslims? And why aren’t they doing anything about it?

    If it were true – “moderate Muslims” would be more outraged than non-Muslims and yet that is not the case. Not even close.

    Where are the “moderate Muslims” in the US denouncing the burning of the American flag?

    Where are the “moderate Muslims” in the US saying this is America and we are allowed to burn a Bible so why not a Koran?

    Where are the “moderate Muslims” in the US denouncing Islamic (Shariah) law?

    And if there are close to a billion “moderate Muslims” who are not islamoterrorists, and do not believe in Shariah law, then why does it still exist?

    Words do not match actions. Now or throughout history.

    If the overwhelming majority of Muslims are “peaceful-loving” people and Islam is a “peaceful” religion — why is there so much hate and violence throughout the Muslim world perpetrated in the name of Islam against non-Muslims?

    Why has the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan never moved passed the Stone Age?

    Why are little girls still being mutilated and still being sold to pedophiles in the name of Islam?

    Why are women still being treated like reproductive chattel innocent women still being stoned to death in the name of Islam?

    Because a billion “moderate Muslims” can’t stop the “very small percentage of Muslims” who are islamoterrorists?

    This turnip doesn’t buy it. And why should any non-Muslim believe “moderate” Islam exists when there is absolutely no evidence of it?
