← The Islamification of Britain: record numbers embrace Muslim faith

Heh, heh. Do white converts to Islam have a lower IQ on average or something? It strikes me that you'd need one.

I liked the way the Muslim students I knew conducted themselves. It's nice to think about people having one partner for life and not doing anything harmful to their body.

This is a religion that endorses FGM and MGM.

As for 'misconceptions', I know there are a wealth of things to choose from in the Quran, but I'll pick this verse and ask how it can be 'misconceived':

4:34 Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.
