The bogey-man cometh...

The T.V. show is sparking anti-Muslim feelings across the United States?

It's not:

-female circumcision?
-suicide bombings?
-blatant disregard for all women and non-Muslims?
-the Taliban's religious police executing and torturing those 'not exhibiting Muslim--acceptable' features, such as the length of a beard?
-the religion of peace, peacefully decapitating non-Muslims while praying 'God is Great'?
-multiple national leaders (Iran, Syria, etc.) calling for and predicting the imminent conflagration of the West and Israel?
-the democratic (ha!) elections of a terrorist organization (Hamas)to rule whose constitution specifically states for the driving out of Palenstine and the world extermination of the Jews?
-the physical pissing on the flag of the one country who will not prosecute you for doing so (Muslim protesters in N.Y.)?...

...and so on...

It's the television, stupid.

Well, I have to say that as we were watching the opening episodes I asked Shazzy whether this was throwing gasoline on a raging fire?

I do worry that it only makes cultural relations worse. Shazzy has a good friend in Portland who moved here to go to college about 20 years ago now. He has a child here in the US and rarely goes home to Saudi. He doesn't have a job because his family has so much money. He just manages their business affairs here. I always worry that he had us all fooled, that one day we'll find out he was a major player in some sort of terrorist episode.
