“There is widespread ignorance and contempt of Muslims and a streak of that in the United States, as well,” Howard Gordon, the creator and executive producer of the Fox action-series “24,” told the Journal. “I am by no means blind to the threat of Islamic extremism and that Jews and Christians are subject to gross caricatures in Muslim countries, such as the dramatization of ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.’ That’s absurd. That’s like ‘1984.’ But we’re Americans, and we can’t use that as an excuse.

“Unfortunately, we know so little about each other and, with the stakes so high, that’s not a good thing.”
