In the Service of Truth?

More on The Rose of Medina (about which I am already heartily sick but whether we want it or not, the debate is thrust upon us). Jordan sent me this link to an interview from altmuslim with author Sherry Jones in which she explains :
I did all this in the service of a truth.
As Jordan said in his Facebook message :
I think we can give the lady the benefit of the doubt when she says she wrote the novel out of respect. But still, even if there was no malice intended, it was a stupid thing to do, unless she lives in a cave and knows nothing about the sensitivities of Muslims.
The novel has now found a UK publisher.
