Pastor Terry Jones — Guilty of War Crimes?
As you probably know, last week Pastor Terry Jones put the Quran on “trial” and found it “guilty.” After promising General David Petraeus and Defense Secretary Robert Gates that he wouldn’t burn it — which would risk a bloodbath in the Muslim world — he went ahead and burned a Quran.
And the previously peaceful city of Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, erupted into violent protests which killed twelve people at the United Nations headquarters located there.
Pastor Terry Jones is clearly guilty of moral and ethical crimes. Did he do anything illegal? What sort of punishment — legal, vigilante, whatever — should Pastor Terry Jones receive?
