so that dude who was going to burn the Qur'an cancelled his plans because he got the mosque at ground zero to be moved.
An interesting topic, which there have been threads on. But this guy got completely what he wanted and that's media coverage. He had 30 followers and this would have gone nowhere if the media didn't jump all over this. and as a result of him just saying he wanted to burn a Qur'an (which is actually completely within his rights), there was international outcry, people burning American flags (which IS illegal if I'm not mistaken? at least within the US) and finally got the planned mosque moved in exchange of cancelling his event.
here's an article. just more proof at how silly humans can be. Symbolic as it is, it's just writing on a page after all
