Terry Jones passed briefly through the prison because they "provoke violence"

Dearborn .- The Rev. Terry Jones has been jailed briefly on Friday after a jury in Michigan has ruled that the protest against plans to hold the largest mosque in America "could provoke violence." Jones and his most important follower, Wayne Sapp, have been released after paying bail of one dollar each.

Jones was jailed after refusing to pay bail of one dollar that was imposed by Judge Mark Somers, who also ordered him to stay away from the Islamic Center of America during the next three years, as reported by the newspaper online The Huffington Post. On 20 March, Sapp, an evangelical pastor, set fire to a copy of the Koran in a small church in Florida.

Sapp, a member of World Outreach Center Dove of Peace, said the Quran had been found "guilty" of various crimes during a "trial of eight months" and therefore had to "run." Jones attended the event which unleashed a wave of violence in early April in Afghanistan, and pledged to lead a protest against Islam against the largest mosque in the United States.

"Our intention is to inform that there is a radical element in Islam," said Jones in an interview with Reuters. "Obviously it's terrible if people die murdered. I think, on the other hand, this shows the radical element of Islam, "he said regarding the deaths of civilians in Afghanistan during the protests.
