You knew this had to happen. Muslim groups are up in arms because the terrorists on this season’s 24 are actually Muslim.
The AP reports:
“The overwhelming impression you get is fear and hatred for Muslims,” said Rabiah Ahmed, a spokeswoman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. She said Thursday she was distressed by this season’s premiere. “After watching that show, I was afraid to go to the grocery store because I wasn’t sure the person next to me would be able to differentiate between fiction and reality.”
What, was somebody gonna throw a cantaloupe at her? Please. Can she be any more dramatic or more insulting to average Americans? That’s like me saying I was afraid to go out in public after the Passion of the Christ opened because I was afraid that Christians were gonna pummel me for what happened to Jesus. As a Fox statement pointed out, “Over the past several seasons, the villains have included shadowy Anglo businessmen, Baltic Europeans, Germans, Russians, Islamic fundamentalists, and even the (Anglo-American) president of the United States.” One of the things that makes 24 a great show is that it isn’t politically correct and it’s willing to go where other shows won’t. Were it to only feature non-Muslim terrorists in season after season, it would be patently absurd. True, most Muslims aren’t terrorists, but most of the terrorists who want to attack America are Muslim. The show wouldn’t be the same if season after season America were attacked by Catholic terrorists from the Galapagos Islands.
