    The article cites:

    After all, the local community board approved the Park51 development in two separate votes—and the right of the project to proceed was honorably affirmed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg against a torrent of criticism this fall.
    The local community board would have had no choice but to approve the development; not doing so would have been discriminatory.

    However, the question has always been one of what you "can" do v. what you "should" do.

    While the author states that opposition to the project has come more from those outside the neighborhood involved, I think that is due to the way all Americans view the 9/11 attack on NYC. NYC, that day, became a symbol of the entire U.S. ... just as the perpetrators intended it to be.
