FOX AIRS '24' DISCLAIMER
Kiefer Sutherland says U.S. Muslims reject terror

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 2/8/05) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) today said that the Fox television network aired a disclaimer Monday
night during its drama series "24" stating that American Muslims reject
terrorism. SEE: http://www.fox.com/24/

Fox's disclaimer, read by actor Kiefer Sutherland, stated:

"Hi. My name is Kiefer Sutherland. And I play counter-terrorist agent Jack
Bauer on Fox's 24. I would like to take a moment to talk to you about
something that I think is very important. Now while terrorism is obviously
one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is
important to recognize that the American Muslim community stands firmly
beside their fellow Americans in denouncing and resisting all forms of
terrorism. So in watching 24, please, bear that in mind."

Fox consulted with CAIR on the text of the disclaimer.

CAIR, along with the Muslim Public Affairs Council, recently met with
representatives of Fox and the show's producers to address the depiction of
a "Muslim" family that is at the heart of a terror plot in the popular
program. The group is concerned that the portrayal of the family as a
terrorist "sleeper cell" may cast a shadow of suspicion over ordinary
American Muslims and could increase Islamophobic stereotyping and bias.

After meeting with CAIR, Fox officials said they would distribute a CAIR
public service announcement (PSA) to network affiliates.

"We appreciate Fox's willingness to address Muslim concerns and to tell
viewers that American Muslims repudiate terror," said CAIR Communications
Coordinator Rabiah Ahmed.

CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 31 offices and
chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance understanding
of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American
Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

I support these spots. I have Muslim friends (who, by the way, enjoy
24), and I would never want them to be hassled in any way in the US.
They don't deserve it.

I support honesty and balance. Keifer should have also informed viewers that
Fox caved in to intense pressure and lobbying from CAIR. He should have also
mentioned that CAIR has been implicated by more than one individual with
supporting the funding raising activities of terrorist groups, and that
according to news reports more than one CAIR leader has previously belonged to
a terrorist organization. Further, have your Muslim friends done anything to
assist police in ferreting out terrorists in their midst?

Perhaps Al Pacino should make a little disclaimer to say Italians reject
organised crime.

That's been done numerous times - years ago during the TV series "The
Untouchables", during the Godfather trilogy, and most recently over
"The Sopranos". I'm sure there must be many more. Surely you can
discern the difference between organized crime families and
international state sponsored terrorists seeking wmd to destroy a
country.

Okay Vic, you go out and paint "terrorist Muslim" on the heads of the
terrorists and then go paint "good Muslim" on the heads of the good
ones. I promise never to hassle a good one. I remember seeing this
german woman who was the landlady for one of the 9/11 terrorists
explaining how he seemed like such a nice boy.
