3. What many Americans are not aware of

is that the things that make such good TV about oppressing women and repressive laws against Christianity etc are either pre-Islamic customs and/or political crap.

One does not have to go far to discover customs and practices in Christian countries that are somewhat at odds with the message of Jesus.

Religion - all religions - have long been a useful tool of people whose motivations have more to do with the earthly concerns of controlling people and resources than with anything remotely spiritual.
