Terry Jones, the Pastor from Florida who threatend to burn the Koran during the height of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, paid a visit to Ground Zero today and held a press conference. As reported by the New York Post, the press conference took place at Park 51, “to bring awareness to his new organization Stand Up America and how radical Islam needs to be combated.” His organization hopes to go before the UN to “adopt normal human rights” in the Middle East.

When the New York Post asked Pastor Terry Jones if his visit at the start of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha was of significance,  he replied that he didn’t know of any such holiday, adding, “Our methods are not meant to offend.”

Do you think the visit by Pastor Terry Jones to Ground Zero was offensive?
