Prince Charles champions Islam?

Apparently Prince Charles is coming to Washington to champion the "merits of Islam" to President Bush... He feels we have been too intolerant since 9/11.

"It is understood that Prince Charles did not -- and does not -- believe that the actions of 19 hijackers should tarnish the reputation of hundreds of millions of law-abiding Muslims around the world.
"His criticism of America was a general one of the Americans not having the appreciation we have for Islam and its culture," said Khalid Mahmood, a Labor Party member of Parliament who attended the meeting." (source)

How about the 16+ incidents that happened before and after 9/11...including 7/7 in London? Could the prince be naive enough to believe that Islam is only suspect in the US because of one day? He needs to look at some time lines, some beheading videos and some of the statements from Muslim leaders over the past ten years...then he needs to read the book I'm reading right now: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades).
