CAIR Is Full Of Crap

From Little Green Footballs:

The Muslim Brotherhood front group calling itself the Council on American Islamic Relations is engaged in a major push to force Fox Television to apologize for depicting Muslims as terrorists: Hit US television show ‘24’ under fire from Muslim group.

They’ve been spending a lot of their Saudi money on this campaign today; CAIR shills have been all over the media, seething and complaining and lying.

Hit US television show “24” came under fire from a Muslim group, which accused the program’s makers of fuelling anti-Muslim prejudice with its latest storyline.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said “24’s” season premiere, in which Islamic terrorists detonated a nuclear bomb near Los Angeles, risked stoking racial hatred.

The criticism was swiftly rejected by the show’s network Fox Broadcasting, which said the series did not single out ethnic groups to be villains.

“The raw emotional impact of fictional scenes that include widespread death and destruction in America may adversely affect the public’s attitude toward civil liberties, religious freedom and interfaith relations,” the CAIR statement said.

“The program’s repeated association of acts of terrorism with Islam will only serve to increase anti-Muslim prejudice in our society,” it added.

Representatives of the award-winning series responded by pointing out that during the show’s five seasons villains have included Americans, Baltic Europeans, Germans, Russians, Islamic fundamentalists and the fictional president of the United States.

Yeah, because everyone knows that there are plenty of other kinds of terrorist. Look at all the Presbyterians carrying out acts of terror. And, the Buddhists. Those damned Buddhists.

Since 9/11, there have been more than 7232 acts of terror carried out by Islamic Jihadis all over the world. These acts of terror have resulted in tens of thousands of deaths.

Here's a map of recent terror attacks around the world with links to their stories.

A friend of mine recently put up a site parodying CAIR incessant whining about "Islamophobia."
