Koran-burning 'pastor' loses website

Dove World Outreach Center is out of reach

Security for virtualized datacentres

Red-nosed pastor Terry Jones, who plans to burn copies of the Koran and Jewish text the Talmud at the weekend, has either had his website hacked or his ISP has pulled the plug.

The site, at http://www.doveworld.org/ is unavailable this morning.

The pastor of a tiny fundamentalist church in Florida, which has reportedly lost half its congregation since the publicity-seeking preacher started his latest campaign, has become a central part of media coverage of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks this weekend.

The church, which has run previous campaigns with the rabidly anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, has struggled to find support for International Burn a Koran Day. Muslim students in Florida have been advised to stay off the streets while the stunt happens.

The Dove World Outreach Center also sells "Islam is the Devil" T-shirts and runs an eBay business.

Jones first hit the pulpit in Germany but left the country after members of his congregation accused him of financial shenanigans.

Recent days have seen the publicity stunt disowned by Sarah Palin and Afghan commander General David Petraeus. ®
