Tehran Times calls for "info jihad" to counter "Zionist-controlled media" and "Islamophobia"

Information is power and so misinformation, the subject of "Info jihad," via

Robert Spender deconstructs the article published in Iran, contending that the media unfairly demonizes Islam and the "real facts" are not known to the West. Be sure to read the commentary as well.

Here is Spencer's 5-Point Plan to improve the "misperceptions" of Islam:

1. Stop committing violent acts.

2. Stop justifying those violent acts by reference to the Qur'an and Sunnah.

3. Stop saying violent or hateful things in private when you think no non-Muslims are around.

4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.

5. Actively work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

Don't hold your breath.
