Mark Shea of Catholic and Enjoying It! points to a new blog, A True Word, cultivating improved relations between Islam and the rest of the world. A quick look, and I do mean quick, suggests a mixed bag. This post is critical of Muslims being too willing to believe some wild anti-Western stories. Self-criticism isn't easy, so some kudos are deserved--though MEMRI-bashing doesn't help. This one, however, "exposes" the backers of a "pro-Democracy think tank"--prominent Jews--and derides reports that "Saudi Arabian religious authorities are spreading hate literature." Where ever could we get that idea? MEMRI links to come.

To be fair, the second story claims some of the people associated with the think tank have justified pro-Israeli terrorism, but its astonished reaction to charges that Saudis have promoted hate lit doesn't boost its credibility. I'll give it all a closer look.
