    How very, very European!!!

    Tell the folks the cross will be replaced 'in a few years'. The Muslims get a mosque without a cross in sight, the Christians are pacified because they think they have assurances that the cross will be replaced and the politicians are off the hook because they know that a 'few years' from now, no one will even remember this whole incident. Also, in the meantime, there is hope that the whole "cross vs. mosque" thing will somehow be resolved by some other organization, country or nation.


    If all else fails, 'in a few years' the politicians can simply state that the whole thing is under review and will take a few years to resolve. A few years after that, they can refer the whole problem to the UN. By the time the UN gets done equivocating, the original politicians are retired or dead and its someone else's problem.
