Mustafa Hussein of the Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City didn’t know what to expect.


The proposed Islamic center and mosque in New York City blocks from ground zero has drawn harsh anti-Muslim reaction.


A Florida pastor threatened to burn copies of the Qur’an.


E-mails and calls started coming into the local center. To Hussein’s delight, they were supportive. Many people called to apologize for the behavior of those railing against Islam.
