One good thing to come out of "Archbishop Burkhagate"

One of the good things to come out of the furore over the Archbishop of Canterbury's remarks is that they have been warmly welcomed by the Muslim Council of Britain:

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said it was grateful for the Archbishop's "thoughtful intervention" on the discussion of the place of Islam and Muslims in modern Britain.
A spokesman said: "The MCB observes, with some sadness, the hysterical misrepresentations of his speech which serves only to drive a wedge between British people."

I have recently been very concerned about the reported remarks from the Bishop of Rochester, which have come across as "Anti-Islam". So I am glad that the Archbishop has demonstrably extended the hand of friendship to the Muslim community in Britain.
