Comments: Muslim group upset with depiction on season premiere of 24

Actually, no. We all are stereotyped. Get over it, Muslims, like the rest of us.

Hopefully someday they'll come to realize that the way to fix the negative image of Islam is to fix Islam itself, not force people to paint them a pretty portrait.

Arnold got the same reaction for his film "True Lies" depicting a gang of terrorists as (shock) muslims...and that was pre 9/11. We've said this before, we'll just have to keep saying it: not all muslims are terrorsts, but all terrorists are muslims.

Can't wait for "24." This is their second time having Muslim terrorists in four seasons (the other years were Serbs and, I believe, South Americans)- which sounds about right.

Happy new year

I'm sick of being stereotyped as a mafioso...oh wait, no I'm not.

Nobody F's with me, cuz I might be "connected".

How DARE they depict muslims as terrorists. After all, we know that thre has NEVER been a Muslim terrorist problem anywhere in the world, and that no Muslim child has ever been involved in terrorist activity.

What could Fox have been thinking, in a day and age when we are faced with such a horrific problem with Buddhist terrorists!

Yeah, well, it's still my favorite show. I don't care if they have Steve Urkel preparing to nuke New York City.

They'll get over it.
