The pastor of a Florida church is adament that he was promised that officials planning an Islamic center near ground zero in New York would move it if he canceled his plans to burn Qurans on Sept. 11.
Pastor Terry Jones spoke again to reporters Thursday after Muslim leaders said they had only agreed to a meeting Saturday in New York to discuss the mosque's location.
Jones said he would be "very, very disappointed" if the mosque is not moved. He insisted that central Florida Imam Muhammad Musri told him four times in front of witnesses that the New York mosque leaders promised to move it.
Musri told The Associated Press he only offered to set up a meeting between Jones and the New York leaders. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf who is planning the mosque says there is no deal.
