“We have never met Major Bloomberg but he has gone up in our esteem and respect for his intellectual clarity and moral courage in standing for the rights of American Muslims in building а Cultural Centre and а sacred place of worship in lower Manhattan as а venue for reflection, learning and fraternity among cultures and religions. What better place than lower Manhattan near the World Trade Centre to signal the revulsion of American Muslims and moderate Muslims all over the world against the action of some extremists? Congratulations to Мауог Bloomberg.”

This is not an acceptable response to a crisis of enormous proportion. Certainly not for Micronesia and not for anyone of the small island developing states who need fast action. This is an issue of survival for us.”
