Anti-Islam video promoted by controversial Gainesville, Fla., pastor Terry Jones

The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, which left four Americans dead, including U.S. ambassador to Libya, was sparked by a short U.S.-made video mocking Islam’s founding prophet and promoted by Florida pastor Terry Jones, who inspired deadly riots in Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011 by first threatening to burn copies of the Quran and then burning one in his Gainesville church, the New York Times reported Wednesday.
