All aboard ... ?

Now that London has an Islamic Mayor that religion seems to be hitting the news even more than usual. I see that the largest Muslim charity in Britain is trying to portray a "softer" side of Islam by posting signs on red buses proclaiming "glory to Allah". I'm not sure these people "get it", most people will I'm sure mix this up with "Allahu Akbar" (God is greater) which  is synonymous in the West with what happens just before you're about to get your limbs blown off; hardly a positive vibe. 

What would have impressed me more is if the sign read, "equality for Muslim Women" or perhaps "don't throw gay people off tall buildings" even "beheading innocent unbelievers is evil" , but then again we all know why that will never happen until Muslims themselves reform their archaic religion out of the bronze age and into the 21st century (not that any other religion has fully achieved this yet)..
