"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."
OK, my question is why are you protesting fiction, when you should be protesting reality?
If more Muslims showed outrage at the history of islamist terrorism, you would not need to worry about what people think of Muslims after viewing a fictional television show. When the majority of Muslims stay silent after terrorsit groups murder innocent people, what do you expect non-Muslims to think of you? It is the Muslim's responsibility to to project a more positive image of your culture and your people, not Hollywood's.
