    im glad somebody spoke up because i was starting to think that ALL muslim familys are like this. when i say "think" i am referring to regurgitating what the TV told me to think. i was scared cuz i have muslim neighbors. maybe they arent sleeper cells after all......hmmmmm. now im confused.

    TV, what should I think?

    They better not change a single plot line of their story for this BS.

    Besides, everyone already knows that all muslims are terrorists, 24 isnt telling us anything new. :roll2:

    I have been a huge fan of 24 the past few seasons, and I really don't watch any TV shows because I just can't stand most of it ... so I really, really, really tried to stick it out with this years season of 24, but it just sucks so bad, I didn't last past the third episode. Really, any muslims that are offended should just sit back and enjoy the fact that the show has become retarded.

    TV/movies are so PC when it comes to portraying terrorists it is ridiculous. Fox is actually showing a somewhat plausible plot and getting ripped for it. I can't recall how many shows/movies have made Serbian nationalists the terrorist badguys, when in fact, however despicable they may be in their homeland, they have never conducted a major operation in America or Europe. Same w/ the Sum of All Fears-they changed the bad guys from Arabs to South African Nazis. Again, not nice guys, but not a group that has shown a major dislike towards the United States. If CAIR wanted to do something, maybe they should encourage their fellow Arabs/Muslims to help root out the small minority of terrorist scumbags in their own community instead of bitching about a TV plot.

    Besides, in the show Herman's Head on Fox, the Buckeye fan character was portrayed as a meat-head, party animal slob- I take offense at that horrible stereotyping!!!!!

    I sure hope they stay away from showing anything like the Irish as a bunch of drunks.

    I like 24. I loved the first seasons, and I like this one so far. I think the fact that Muslim's are upset over this "stereo-typing" is pathetic. If they don't like it, they should stop bombing buildings.

    Seriously, if the shoe fits...and yes, I know that 95% of Muslims aren't terrorists. But every time there is news of another terrorist attack, or bombing, or whatever, it's always the muslims that are behind it. So, this horseshit complaint is ridiculous.

    I take it more as Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim.
    There is a big difference.

    When I get on an airplane, if I see any arab/muslim looking people on it, I get a little nervous. I know that's wrong, but we are being conditioned to be that way. Either that, or I am a closet racist. However, I never felt that way before 9-11, so I think it is we are being conditioned.

    I always hope people get nervous when they see me, but I definately look more Indian than Arab. By "goat"ee doesn't help either.

    zip, prior to 9-11 I had my eye on any arabs getting on my flights. I was worried about the terrorist threat as well as having to sit next to some ripe s.o.b. - take a friggin shower taxi driver.
