A town council in Georgia could soon reverse its decision to disallow an Islamic group to open a mosque inside a strip mall, despite objections of residents.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:

The town council in Kennesaw, Georgia, near Atlanta, voted last week to deny a Muslim community group a permit to open a storefront worship center amidst townspeople chanting "no mosque" and waving American flags. But the council wants to change its decision.

(Matthews) "Kennesaw is a fantastic place to live, to work, to play, to worship. And we want to try to make sure that everybody is accommodated."

Mayor Mark Matthews.

The group's spokesman, Amjad Taufique, is glad they'd reconsider.

(Taufique) "We hope that will save us all legal issues and everything, and this will give us an opportunity to invite our neighbors more."

They could vote again Monday.
