Terry Jones heeds God's call to not burn Korans, and Imam Rauf's reasonable answers sound like a threat to Fox News. (8:55)

["DAILY SHOW" THEME SONG

PLAYING]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: HEY, EVERYBODY, THANK

YOU VERY MUCH.

WELCOME TO "THE DAILY SHOW".

MY NAME JON STEWART.

TONIGHT'S GUEST ACTOR AND

DIRECTOR OF THE NEW FILL "THE

TOWN" AND FEW PEOPLE KNOW THIS

HE IS ALSO THE VOICE OF THE

GEEKO LIZARD.

I MADE UP THE LAST PART.

BEN AFFLECK WILL BE JOINING US.

[LAUGHTER]

JUST SO YOU KNOW WIKIPEDIA, I

MADE THAT LAST PART UP.

[LAUGHTER]

THERE WAS SOME UNCERTAINTY ON

HOW AMERICANS WOULD BE REFLECT

ON 9/11.

SPECIFICALLY ONE AMERICAN OUT OF

350 MILLION OR SO TERRY JONES

PASTOR OF GAINESVILLE'S DOVE

WORLD OUTREACH CENTER AND

PRESIDENT OF THE UPPER LIP HAIR

CLUB FOR MEN HOW HE WOULD

OBSERVE THAT DAY.

>> WILL HE BURN THE KORAN WITH

THE FOLLOWER?

>> WHY ARE THE MUSEIMS --

MUSLIMS IN SUP AN UPROAR.

>> HOW COOKIE IS THIS GUY.

>> IS HE GOING TO BURN THE TORAH

NEXT?

>> Jon: WHAT -- NO -- NO,

TORAH BURN BAD!

NOOOOO!

DON'T BURN --

[LAUGHTER]

IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY ONLY MY

HANDS TURN WHEN I GET ANGRY --

[LAUGHTER]

-- KIND OF A SAD STORY AS A

TEENAGER I WAS EXPOSED TO GAM MA

RAYS IN A MILITARY TEST FACILITY

WHILE MASTURBATING.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

LADIES, YES, THE GLOVES MATCH

THE DRAPES.

[LAUGHTER] DID YOSEMITE JONES

BURN THE KORAN LIKE HE PROMISE

STPH-FRPBLD WE FEEL LIKE GOD IS

TELLING US TO STOD.

>> Jon: REALLY?

WHEN GOD TOLD YOU TO DO IT

ORIGINALLY HE HADN'T ANTICIPATED

THE BACKLASH.

IS THAT IT?

HE NEVER SUE THAT COME SOMETHING

IN IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING?

I THINK YOU ARE CONFUSING GOD

WITH EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD

TELLING TO YOU STOP.

WHEN GOD TOLD YOU NOT TO BURN

THE KORAN DID IT SOUND SOMETHING

LIKE THIS: DON'T BE A (bleep)

IDIOT, DUDE?

THAT'S NOT GOD.

THAT'S EVERYBODY.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THAT WAS NOT THE ONLY KORAN

BURNING TO FALL THROUGH, BY THE

WAY.

FOR MORE WE GO TO JENNIFER -- AT

OUR AMARILLO AFFILIATE --

>> A PUBLIC BURNING OF THE KORAN

DID NOT TAKE PLACE TODAY.

>> DAVID GRISHAM ATTEMPTED TO

PUBLICLY SET FIRE TO THE ISLAMIC

HOLY BOOK.

>> HE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THE

BURNING THE KORAN.

I WAS LIKE DUDE, YOU HAVE NO

KORAN.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: AND THE KORAN BURNER

AND WAS ALL BUMMER AND I WAS

ALL -- NEXT THING YOU KNOW I'M

IN THE BACK OF THE MYSTERY

MACHINE AND FRED IS JAMMING

SCOOBY SNACKS DOWN MY GULLET.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THE MEDIA WAS CIRCUMSPECT ABOUT

WHETHER OR NOT THEY SHOULD BE

COVERING THESE ACTS.

PERHAPS THEY SHOULDN'T.

[LAUGHTER]

THIS NEXT CLIP EXEMPLIFIES HOW

OFTEN THE MEDIA'S BETTER ANGELS

GET THE (bleep) KICKED OUT OF

THEM.

>> THIS GUY IS CLOWN OF EARTH

AND WE SHOULDN'T BE HAVING A

CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT HE IS OR

ISN'T GOING TO DO.

WE CAN'T ADDRESS ALL THESE WHACK

JOBS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

THERE'S A SECOND SIDE OF THIS,

CHRIS, THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

>> I HAVE TOP INTERRUPT YOU

BECAUSE HERE IS THE PASTOR.

LET'S HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: AND THE WINNER AND

STILL UNDEFEATED DHAMPON IN THE

BATTLE BETWEEN THE MEDIA'S

SUPEREGO AND ID IS ID.

MORE MEDIA.

THEY CAN'T HELP THEMSELVES.

THEY ARE NOT BAD PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW WHAT THE MEDIA IS IN

THEY ARE THE DOG FROM THE MOVIE

UP.

>> HE IS A GOOD AND SMART MASTER

AND HE MADE ME THIS COLLAR SO

THAT I MAY TALK.

SQUIRREL!

>> Jon: YOU'RE RIGHT.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WE SHOULD NOT -- WE SHOULD NOT

BE FOLLOWING PASTOR JONES.

PASTOR JONES --

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE WHILE THE MEDIA

FOCUSED THEIR QUESTIONS ON

PASTOR JONES, FOX NEWS'S

SQUIRREL CONTINUED TO BE IMAM

RAWF -- RAUF AND HIS LOWER

MANHATTAN --

♪ ♪

>> I WANT TO KNOW THIS IMAM WILL

NOT CONDEMN THE TERRORIST GROUP

HAMAS.

>> WHO IS FINANCING THIS

EXPENSIVE MOSQUE SNCH THAT IMAM

RADICAL?

>> WHY IS IT SO CLOSE?

>> IS IT PROVOCATION,

CELEBRATION?

>> WITH SUCH A PLANET, WHY

THERE?

>> Jon: YES, WITH SUCH A BIG

GALAXY, WHY THIS PLANET?

WHY CAN'T THE MIHM YAWM MAKE IT

A -- IMAM MAKE THE A DBA LAIC --

GALACTIC COMMUNITY CENTER.

DEATH, DEATH -- I WAS SUPPOSED

TO GET SOME REVERB?

NO ALL RIGHT, ANSWER THE

QUESTION.

>> WILL YOU TURN DOWN MONEY FOR

PEOPLE WHO SAY GIVE NONHAMAS?

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> IS THE STATE DEPARTMENT RIGHT

SAYING HAMAS IS A TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION?

>> I CONDEMN ANYONE AND EVERYONE

WHO HAS COMMITTED ACTS OF

TERRORIST AND HAMAS HAS

COMMITTED ACTS OF INTEREST

TERRORISM.

>> Jon: NOT BAD.

ALL RIGHT.

HE ANSWERED SOME OF THE

QUESTIONS BUT THERE'S ONE

QUESTION YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER.

WHY ON THIS PLANET?

>> HAD I KNOWN THIS WOULD

HAPPEN, WE CERTAINLY WOULD NEVER

HAVE DONE THIS.

IF WE MOVE FROM THAT LOCATION,

THE STORY WILL BE THAT THE

RADICALS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE

DISCORSE H- -- THE HEADLINES IN

THE MUSLIM WORLD WILL BE THAT

ISLAM IS UNDER ATTACK.

THE CONCERN FOR AMERICAN

CITIZENS WHO LIVE AND WORK AND

TRAVEL OVERSEAS WILL BE

COMPROMISED IF THE RADICALS ARE

STRENGTHENED.

IF WE DON'T DO THIS RIGHT, ANGER

WILL EXPLODE IN THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

>> Jon: YOU THINK YOU ARE SO

REASONABLE WITH YOUR SMOKY VOICE

AND LICKABLE BEARD.

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE SOME MAY THINK YOU ARE

PUTTING TOO MUCH CREDENCE IN OUR

RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTROL THE

REACTION OF RADICALS.

OF COURSE, OTHERS MAY JUST HEAR

THIS.

>> IS THIS A THREAT?

>> HERE IS A THREAT HE MADE

YESTERDAY.

>> IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE A

WARNING.

>> IS THAT A THREAT, LAURA?

>> IT'S A VAILED THREAT.

>> I DON'T THINK IT'S ANY

MISTAKE HE USED THE WORD EXPLODE

YONCH EEM YAM RAUF ANSWERED

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEIR

QUESTIONS BUT HERE IS WHAT THEY

HEARD AT FOX.

SQUIRREL!

[LAUGHTER]

EVEN AMERICA'S FORMER MAYOR RUDY

GIULIANI SAW GIRLS.

>> NOW WE HAVE THE IMAM WHO

TELLS US IF HE DOESN'T GET HIS

WAY THERE COULD BE SIGNIFICANT

AND DANGEROUS VIOLENCE.

THOSE ARE VERY, VERY STRONG

WORLD -- WORDS.

AND TO ENTER A SORT OF

SUGGESTION OF A THREAT INTO

THIS, I WORRY ABOUT THIS AS THE

KIND OF TACTICS HE PURSUES.

>> Jon: HE IS APPALLED.

TO USE A CHEAP USE OF FEAR AS A

WAY TO EXPEDITE YOUR DESIRED

OUTCOME, THAT IS SO A FEW YEARS

AGO.

>> ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THAT

EIGHT WEEKS FROM TODAY ON

NOVEMBER 2 WE MAKE THE RIGHT

CHOICE.

IF WE MAKE THE WRONG CHOICE THE

DANGER IS WE'LL GET HIT AGAIN.

>> BARACK AND HILLARY HAVE MADE

THEIR INTENTIONS CLEAR ON THE

WAR ON TERROR.

THEY WOULD RETREAT, DECLARE

DEFEAT AND THE CONSEQUENCE OF

THAT WOULD BE DEVASTATING.

IT WOULD MEAN ATTACKS ON

AMERICA.

>> HOW DANGEROUS WOULD IT BE IF

A DEMOCRAT GETS ELECTION.

THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS

SHOW THEM WEAKNESS.

I BELIEVE THAT PUTS US IN

GREATER DANGER.

>> Jon: SEE THAT'S NOT A

THREAT.

THAT'S NOT A THREAT IF YOU DON'T

VOTE REPUBLICAN, WE'LL BE

ATTACKED BY TERRORISTS.

THOSE ARE HELPFUL WARNINGS THAT

HAVE PROTECTED OUR COUNTRY.

SOMETIMES I GET SO SAD WATCHING

THESE CLIPS
