Parts of the Muslim world will always be violently inflamed about something, no matter whether the center is relocated or not. If not about the relocation of the center then about some other perceived "offense".
The issue of American support for Israel, for example, barely gets a mention in the early transcripts. It comes much later as a post hoc justification.
Contrary to popular belief, bin Laden did not start mentioning the plight of the Palestinians and the occupation of the Aqsa mosque only after 9/11. In every single statement issued by bin Laden, before or after 9/11, he unfailingly mentions both the occupation of Jerusalem and the presence of American troops in Saudi Arabia as a critical part of the list of Muslim grievances against the West.
According to the most reliable sources, Islam is not a religion & America is a Christian nation.
