Council on American-Islamic Relation (CIAR) National Executive director Nihad Awad answers question during a press conference in Washington, DC, on September 9, 2010. In response to a Florida church's plan to burn copies of the Korans, the CIAR will hand out 200,000 replacement Korans - 1,000 for each copy that is burned September 11, 2010. Pastor Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach Center, at the center of a global storm over plans to burn hundreds of Korans said he would likely call off the event if asked to by the Obama administration. US President Barack Obama warned the burning ceremony would be a "recruitment bonanza" for Al-Qaeda, which carried out the 2001 attacks on the United States in which almost 3,000 people died.
