Pastor Terry Jones Featured in HBO Documentary about Islam in Detroit

The film covers the tensions stirred by Florida pastor Terry Jones, who burned the Quran. Jones has made trips to metro Detroit to hold rallies against Islam. He is shown speaking in June 2011 outside City Hall in Dearborn, Mich., which has one of the largest Arab-American populations in the country, and "inciting" a crowd that showed up to protest against him.

Muslim rights activist Dawud Walid, who is featured in the HBO documentary, says he likes the film's approach.

"I think the documentary did a wonderful job of showing how the metro Detroit community did not allow itself to be divided by Pastor Terry Jones," said Walid, the executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
