Reverend Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition talks with the media before attempting to speak with Dove World Outreach Center church pastor Terry Jones in Gainesville, Florida September 10, 2010. Mahoney is there to persuade Jones to cancel his Koran burning event. The pastor of a small Florida church said on Friday he does not plan to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks and hopes a Muslim imam will organize a meeting with those planning an Islamic center near the site of the New York attacks.
