When the Shoe Is on the Other Foot....

I was reading in Entertainment Weekly a review on the show, "24." They were discussing the foreshadowing of the current plot as it relates to Muslim extremists. Is "24" straying into naughty territory? Are they buying into anti-Arab-American feelings? Interestingly enough, we have no problem watching movies on Christian extremists. No one thinks anything about that. After all, they are certainly out there, and Christianity has plenty of blood on its hands. So does Islam. But suddenly, it is all about prejudice instead of an interesting plot-line. Shocking, eh?
