Back when Hollywood was doing the movie of Tom Clancy's Clear and Present Danger, Arab lobbying groups mounted a (successful) campaign to change the depiction of the terrorists from Arabs, as Clancy had written, to white neo-Nazis.
Back when Arnie was doing True Lies, Arab lobbying groups complained about the villains being Muslim terrorists.
Arab lobbying groups have complained about the villains on 24 being Muslim terrorists.
When when Flight 93 opens at the end of the week, should we expect to see the same Arab lobbying groups complaining about the terrorists in this movie being Arabs?
Oh, that's right, the terrorists on that plane were Muslim, weren't they?
