CAIR, unindicted co-conspirator and Islamofascist front group for Hamas in the US, demands Hollywood produce (more) Islam-positive propaganda. It is not that Hollywood produced anything Islam-critical recently, quite the opposite. Everything we’ve seen after 9/11 was dripping with PC and Arab ‘petro-dollars certainly played a large part in that. Looks like we’re going to see more of that shortly:
(CNSNews.com) – An Islamic advocacy group wants the entertainment industry to present a more positive image of Muslims and Arabs, who often play terrorists on television and in the movies — especially after 9/11, when Arab Muslims attacked the United States.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office (CAIR-LA) and FOX Television recently co-hosted a “Hollywood 101” workshop to introduce aspiring Muslim writers, directors and actors to the entertainment industry.
The event, held at FOX Studios in Century City, was intended to promote a positive change in Hollywood’s portrayal of Muslims and Arabs, CAIR-LA said.
In January, CAIR complained about the storyline on the Fox network’s popular television drama “24,” which depicted terrorists attacking the United States. CAIR said the Fox show would increase anti-Muslim prejudice in American society.
The recent “Hollywood 101” event — a result of CAIR’s discussions with Fox — included students and entry-level professionals who are hoping to build contacts and advance their careers in the entertainment industry.
Participants were given a tour of the studio lot, a presentation on FOX internships and a one-hour interactive seminar featuring five industry professionals, CAIR said in a news release.
CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush said the best way to promote an “accurate and balanced portrayal of Muslims in America and around the world” is thought media outlets that shape popular culture.
* Aylush is a CAIR frontman, a Muhammedan da’awa doctor and well versed in kitman & taqiyya, because ‘war is deceit’ and Islam is at war with mankind since its inception…
“Our goal is to help nurture aspiring Muslim artists and to act as facilitators in providing support to emerging Muslim talent in the entertainment industry,” said Ayloush.
Ayloush thanked Fox and its Diversity Department for co-hosting the event – “and realizing the importance of engaging young American Muslims who seek to work as entertainment content creators.”
This is not the first time Fox has kowtowed to the Council on American Islamic Relations. Do Fox execs know that the group has been named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding case? Do they care?

Fox Kowtows to CAIRÂ Â Â Â

It is frequently a bit of knee-jerk paranoia on the part of the defenders of Islamic jihad: that anyone who opposes them must be Jewish. This paranoia about the Jews is nourished by the Qur’an’s portrayal of them as crafty, untrustworthy â€” and accursed. And of course today jihadists would have us believe that the trouble between Muslims and non-Muslims is all because of Israel.
Although I am not in fact Jewish, I have been frequently labeled as such by Muslim spokesmen who evidently can’t conceive of a non-Jewish opponent of jihad ideology. So have Victor Davis Hanson and Paul Marshall: both have told me that they too have been labeled Jewish by Muslims after writing about Islamic jihad. One day perhaps such Muslim writers will awaken to the fact that the jihad ideology and the depredations of dhimmitude have won them a considerably larger spectrum of opponents than they care to imagine.
