>>>Fact: Islam is a political ideology. The "Religion" aspect serves to subdue the masses

Islam encompasses every aspect of life.

>>>Fact: Mohammedism requires "Submission" to the will of the Muslim or death

Submission of will to Allah is required by muslims - which means to obey his commands and live a controlled life.

"Or death " is an exaggeration - you can associate this with US nationalistic ideology -ie either u r with us or with them - if u r with them we will smoke u out of yr holes.

>>Fact :Slavery was and is practiced within the structure of "Islam"

Blatant lie - Give proof

Fact: Changing from Moslem to Christian (or other faith) is an offense with a death penalty

True - but under the rule of islamic shariah - now tell me when was the last time when someone was killed for converting out of ISlam ??
Secondly - it is a crime in islamic shariah - you have yr own system of justice devised by human beings and yr ethical & moral standards keep on changing with time & so does yr law.

>>>Fact: Women are considered chattle, ie property of the male moslem

There is a verse in Quran - request u to read properly - if you still did not undertsand then tell me I will explain.

>>Fact: Islam is based on intimidation,threats, and violence toward non moslems

It is based on worshipping one god.

>>Fact: Islam, thru jihad, is in a condition of perpetual warfare toward non moslems

jehad is for defensive purpose

Fact: A non Moslem has no legal standing under islamic law, ie shiria.

this is again wrong
