This interesting piece by Joel Mowbray points out that CAIR -- the Council on American Islamic Relations -- has spent plenty of time denouncing the television show "24" . . . but refuses to denounce Hamas or Hezbollah. It's indicative of CAIR's priorities.

My husband is a big fan of "24" -- and I watch it, too. Seems that "24" is being targeted for having "committed candor", as when "24" Executive Producer Joel Surnow told Entertainment Weekly, "Muslims are the terrorists right now." Have we gotten to a place where entertainment can't reflect reality?

That's like demanding -- during WWII -- that war movies be made, not with the Germans and Japanese as the adversaries, but with fictional battles being fought against, say, South Americans.
