Not everyone has those 200 posts yet. *Looks at his post count*
Nevertheless, good things have been said so far.
Regarding the Mosque:
It does need to be 'sold' to the people in New York. There needs to be a statement or some sort of convincing reassurance to say that Islam does not
condone the violence, which it doesn't.
And that sentiment can be expanded to big corporations, the government and many other aspects of life. COMMUNICATION! Showing the people you mean you
care for their well being and that you are prepared to spend some extra time/money/effort when your image is tarnished for whatever reason.
But hey, who are we kidding? Big corporations treat the public like stupid cattle. They say something very concise and twisted and then that's it. We
just have to roll with it.
A little heartfelt generosity or a symbolic, honest effort from the people in charge to get their own hands dirty would go SUCH a long way. It's so
rare these days I'm sure people would be amazed by such a move.
