I have mixed feelings on this. I've read that "Pastor" Terry Jones leads a flock of fewer than 50 people, so maybe the best thing we can do is not give him the publicity that may swell his church to thousands.
On the other hand, it's clear that the US and Europe are rife with anti-Islamic bigotry and Jones is only the tip of the iceberg, so maybe it IS important to give a clear demonstration of sympathy and respect for Islam.
