    I don't think it would make everything all better. I think it could do some good, however, for people to see that they don't fit the extremist stereotype that many people harbor. While there are a significant number of extremists, they are still in the minority.

    Who are you trying to convince? MOST PEOPLE...thinking people know that not all Muslims are fundamentalist or extremists. Katie Couric suggested there ought to be a sitcom to change peoples opinions...WHO'S? Its horse****.

    Ya know if someone had suggested...say...I think there would be a market for a sitcom about a Muslim family...then I dont think ANYONE would even care. The suggestion...from the CBS news anchor...that they ought to use television as propoganda is what has people laughing with derision. (Not like CBS news isnt 'propoganda')

    I'm not trying to convince anyone. I'm merely expressing my opinion. I really couldn't give a **** whether you agree or not.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    THIS IS NOT NORMAL amongst the civilized [key word] western world Muslims, I think the point being made is that this is a separate subsection and if one attacks the atrocities, they must be careful to attack the specific factions and problems instead of generalizing. A sentiment, BTW, that goes true for any ideology and point of view.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    You missed the fact that many of those people lived in Civilized countries...and the fact that 22 nations refused to ratify the UN resolution condemning honor killing.

    If you want to make a cartoony sitcom that pretends to show Muslims in a positive light...be my guest. Just be careful...k? Cuz if you do some murderous assholes are likely to target for death the show and producers and actors and network...so...just be careful...k?

    Go ahead...pretend it isnt a significant number of Muslims.
