Charles what are you talking about?

To summarize, Imam Feisal said that similar to the controversy over the Danish cartoons and how they caused massive protests and put people in danger, strong-arming the mosque into moving away instead of holding proper negotiations and making compromises will ultimately be seen as a mark of America’s purported hatred against Islam, thereby serving Islamic extremists’ purposes. During the roundtable debate afterwards, one of the commentators claimed that this somehow meant Feisal was threatening retribution against the United States if he had to move the mosque.
