GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- An associate of the pastor who once planned to burn copies of the Quran to mark the 9/11 anniversary says the Rev. Terry Jones is headed to New York aboard a Friday night flight.
K.A. Paul, a Christian evangelist who runs a ministry out of Houston, says he bought the ticket for Jones to fly out of Orlando and land around 10:15 p.m. in New York. Paul provided The Associated Press with a copy of the itinerary and flight confirmation number.
Paul says Jones was able to sneak out of his Gainesville church without the media noticing.
Earlier Friday, Jones' son, Luke, said that the Quran-burning event will not take place Saturday but couldn't say whether there would be a future event.
Luke Jones declined to comment on his father's travel plans.

    This is designed to get groups fighting amongst themselves and a clash of civilizations. It is also a prelude to an attack on free speech.

    I think this guy's elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor! No matter what kind of religous beliefs a person has, that is their business, and should be respected. But in turn, other peoples beliefs should also be respected, and not used in any way to gain public opinion via the news media. Thank you Ricardo

    If these muslims don't even allow the bible in their (so called)countries and kidnap and kill our missionaries ,what's the big deal if a U.S. citizen burns a koran?They like to use our freedom of speech and religion when it's to their benefit,yet want to deny it to other beliefs!Is someone going to tell me next they don't want to take us over?
