Opposing Islam

I wonder if it has occured to anyone else that militant opposition to the opening of mosques in the US is actually encouraging rather than discouraging terrorism. I realize that inaction may very well allow a mosque fronting for a terrorist cell to be established, but surely the constant and distrubing images of Americans vigorously opposing and even persecuting Muslims do more for terrorist recruiting than the necessarily covert activities of a few scattered mosques could. Nothing says "the infidel has declared war on us, we must respond in kind" like actually actively opposing Islam as such apart from any evidence of terrorist activity.
