2011 Hyundai Accent given as ransom to pastor who didn't burn the Qur'an (U.S)

A Hyundai dealership from New Jersey said they will promise to give a 2011 Accent supermini to pastor Terry Jones for not burning the Qur'an.

The pastor, from Gainesville, FL had warned that he would burn the holy Islamic book to object to plans to build a mosque and community centre near the New York City site of the 11th September 2001 terrorist attack.

Brad Benson Mitsubishi-Hyundai offered the car on a radio advertisement in September in which he gave his "International Idiot" award to Jones.

Benson said: "I'm sure book burning is gonna have those terrorists quaking.... If you stop all this Koran-burning nonsense for good and go back to handling snakes or whatever it is you do down there, I'll give you a brand-new Hyundai to use for a whole year, you idiot."

Even though Benson had only offered the use of a car, he is giving Jones the car instead because he doesn't care "to be involved in the politics of that."

Jones proposed to give the car to "an organisation that helps abused Muslim women," without naming that group. Benson's radio ad said Jones plans to donate the car to "another Christian organisation."

Benson asked on his dealerships Facebook page whether he should give the car or not. "What should I do? Give this guy a car or blow him off?" His Facebook page has gotten 2,600 responses, with the majority saying he should come through on his promise.
