Robert Spencer's Five-Point Plan To End Islamophobia

In the UK, a Muslim activist group has launch an ad campaign to show "Islam is peace." The BBC reports:

An advertising campaign promoting British Muslims as integrated citizens who reject extremism has been launched.

Islam is Peace - formed after the bombings in London in July 2005 - has initially placed adverts on the capital's buses and Underground trains.

They show a range of Muslims - including a policewoman, a Scout group and the chef Michael Barry - with the slogan "Proud to be a British Muslim".

Organisers say research shows many Britons associate Islam with terrorism.

The project outlines a five-point plan, all focused on changing the perception of Islam and promoting it as a religion based in peace.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has made a Hot Air video revealing his own five-point plan:

According to Robert, to end Islamophobia, Muslims should:

  • Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting those acts.
  • Renounce definitively, not just terrorism, but any intention to replace the US Constitution or the British Constitution, or the Constitution of any non-Muslim state, with Islamic Sharia law, even by peaceful means.
  • Teach Muslims the imperative of co-existing as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis.
  • Begin comprehension, international programs in Mosques all over the world to teach against the ideas of violent Jihad and Islamic supremacism.
  • Actively work with Western law-enforcement officials to identify and apprehend Jihadis within Western Muslim communities.
