Koran controversy

I'm waiting for someone to threaten to delete a Koran from a Kindle or other e-book device. Seriously, this whole matter is distressing on many levels. The Florida fringe minister got his 15 minutes, so now let's concentrate on relevant ways to resolve the hostility. On a related note, someone wrote TIME magazine claiming that people in our country don't want Moslems to build mosques. This is ridiculous--the concern is over the LOCATION. It seems a good time to ask the question WWJD? Also, whatever happened to "Blessed are the peacemakers"?

I find the assertion of Islamaphobia to be somewhat overblown considering the facts:
-with over 1200 Mosques already built in the U.S. it is an improbable claim that Americans don't want houses of worship to be built
-hate crimes against Jews outnumber those against Muslims up to 6 to 1 not to mention other religious groups
-Bible burnings seldom elicit threats of retaliation

Should trying to become a "peacemaker" evolve into "walking on eggshells" as a matter of hostility resolution?
