Bradenton, Florida -- "Love thy neighbor" is a commandment East Manatee County neighbors tell 10 News they are struggling to feel about their new neighbor.
On July 25, controversial pastor Dr. Terry Jones bought 13 acres of property with several structures on it where friends and members of his congregation currently live.
Dr. Jones is known for burning the Islamic holy book, the Quran. He said he does it to send a message about Islam's human rights violations.

"I plan on moving in to my Bradenton-area property over the next couple weeks," said Dr. Jones in a phone interview with 10 News.
Jones said he spent $325,000 on the property which is a downsize from his 20-acre Gainesville property where he lived for almost 30 years. He sold it recently for $1.2 million.
"Tampa Bay has been a destination spot for us for years because it's so diverse and doesn't have that 'small town' mentality," Jones said. "We'll be having our ministries there and and using the facilities on that property to promote Christianity. We'll be doing television taping and Internet recordings."
Many of his neighbors though are unhappy with Dr. Jones moving next door.
"I am disgusted," said one neighbor who did not want to say her name on camera.
"It's not a peaceful situation, so I feel it will affect my comfort zone living out here," said another neighbor who did not want to be named.
"I'm not concerned personally, but I am concerned about some of the other residents who are worried," said Jack Richardson.
Dr. Jones said he's not concerned about community backlash.
"I have many death threats," said Dr. Jones. "There's a reward on my life for $6.4 million. I'm second on the Al Qaeda hit list. I'm certainly not worried about backlash from a community or a church."
