Enough to make a lizard cry....

It seems that "Mad" Melanie Phillips doesn't see Muslims as the enemy, doesn't connect all Muslims to a campaign of violence and she draws a distinction between Islam which "should be respected" and Islamism.

Well, according to the Observer anyway.

"Owing to an editing error last week, we failed to make clear that a letter from Chris Doyle, carried in response to our publication of an extract from Melanie Phillips's new book Londonistan, was written in his capacity as director of the Council for the Advancement of Arab British Understanding. That extract (Comment, 28 May) may have given the impression that Ms Phillips's book connects all British Muslims to a campaign of violence, whereas she stresses that the vast majority are peaceful and law-abiding. She also draws a distinction between Islam, which should be respected, and Islamism, which, she believes, is the use of that religion for violent ends."
