Memo to MyPeace Muslims: try these 5 points to combat "Islamophobia"

Since I started reading about Islam some years ago now, one of the oddest things I've come accross is that Muslims will say Islam is "misunderstood" and that to understand it is really a "religion of peace", we non-Muslims should learn more about it.
Whereas the truth is the opposite.  Many people already believe that Islam is a "Religion of Peace", simply from what what they read and see in the mainstream media.  Duncan Murray chronicles this in "Islamophilia".  
It's only when one reads in detail about Islam, reads the Islamic Trinity that is, that one finds -- if one is a sentient being -- that it is in fact not a "religion of peace".  That it is, in short, the following: violently supremacist, sectarian, misogynist, homophobic, cruel, vengeful and profoundly against the ideas of the west's Enlightenment.
And yet, Muslims time and again go on with saying that there are "misunderstandings" that need to be addressed by non-Muslims finding out more about Islam.  (I guess this reflects the delusion of those who try to importune us like this).
The latest delusional effort to try to "educate" we infidels is going on in Australia:
"Muslim activists will launch the first TV commercial in Australia about the Prophet Mohammed in a bid to improve the religion's battered image".
I have a better idea for these guys to reduce the "Islamophobia" that they perceive in Australia.  It will save them the cost of all these 30 second TV ads...:
1. Focus indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively not just "terrorism," but any intention to replace the secular constitution with Islamic Sharia law. 
3. Teach your co-religionists to coexist peacefully as equals with non-Muslims.
4. Promote programs in mosques all over the world to teach against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.
5. Work with Western law enforcement to identify and arrest jihadists within Western Muslim communities.  Source.
Do these things, and presto! "battered image" improved.
