Many Muslims who I have spoken to over the years hate Channel 4's Dispatches, I think they would be pleased though to see Peter Oborne's It shouldn't happen to a Muslim which is available on 4oD. Online debate here. Trevor Kavanagh who features in the doco responds in The Sun here

What interested me most was Peter Oborne's own attitude and where it came from as I had no idea he was a committed Christian, also of course the retiring top cop from 7/7 who had the controversial idea of talking to the fundamentalists which was my idea in 2003 and the original reason for this blog. The debate after is very interesting, with some comments highlighting verses in the Koran which terrorists and Islamophobes alike take out of context apparently.
