A two-hour PBS documentary on the life of the prophet Muhammad, to air next week, is meant to help counter negative images of Muslims, according to its creators.
"Americans get most of their images about Islam and Muslims from the headlines. Demonstrations and shouting in the streets makes the news, and those images are repeated," said producer Alex Kronemer, an American convert to Islam with a master's degree in theology from Harvard University.
"We wanted to offer a counter to that, to help Americans understand that every Muslim is not Osama bin Laden," Mr. Kronemer said yesterday.
"Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" will air on most of the 349 PBS affiliates nationwide Dec. 18, though District-based WETA will broadcast the program Dec. 26. PBS also plans to rebroadcast "Muslims," a two-hour "Frontline" special, on Dec. 19.
Sep 11th happened because the USA Gov allowed it to happen. check NORTHWOOD Document , and the US GOv talks about commiting atrocites against its own people to create the impression of outside terrorism... When you actually research Sep11th, rather than believe what guy on the TV you love, well, maybe then will your eyes open...
American gov gave taleban aid money in summer 2001, months b4 the attack. Find out....fox isnt going to tell u!!! Carlyle group making off with heavy profits....research, u have a brain (have u??) A US General had already told Pakistani general that the US were coming to afghanistan in Oct-dec time. He told them in Summer. It was in the news their, that USA was gonna attack. The problem is you have decided to believe your media and government over all else...
their is no point trying to reason with people who believe in their Gov more than their God.
Hey, all of you Christians out there (me included)! Want our numbers to incerase? Why don't we just kill ourselves while we blow up a few buildings in the name of Christ and the president, media and others will support us (in a round-about way).
Is it just me? Doesn't this sound crazy? America is at war and the people supposed to proctect you from the terrorists are shouting "Tolerance above all" from the rooftops promoting their 'religion'!
PBS was part of the evolution series that tried to "quench" the truth about creation according to the word of God in Genesis. Their credibility (if they ever had any)was then shot to pieces. Is anything going to change now ?
Islam is an evangelical religion. They will either woo you with moralistic teaching of love and service or force you to "SUBMIT" (this is what the word Islam means) with the sword, if they have the military or poltical ability to do so. I notice the promoters are converts and they have Germanic names. Is this a coincidence that the German Roman Catholic supporters of Hitler were anti-semetic just like the Muslim terrorists? Remember the reason why 9/11 occurred was because the USA supported Israel. There are many Muslims that are good people just like there are many good people in all the cults that deny Christ and teach that we can earn our salvation by good works, but does that allow their teaching to be sponsored by public funds? When will they start paying for sermonaudio's costs or broadcast it's sermons over the radio and TV at government expense? If this is just a history of Mohammed then will we hear the facts about his rejection by the people of Mecca and his terrorist takeover of that it? Will we hear anything about his many wives including the 9 year old? Will the basis of their teachings, which are based on what someone heard from someone who heard something Mohammed or the later Imam's say, be challenged for their reliability? Will the conflicts between the Q'ran and the teachings of Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus in the Bible (see "Allah: is he God?") be examined to show that it is a book of lies that promotes many evil things as well as the human morallity that belongs to many other cults as well? These things should be edited into this program to give it the balance of open honesty which results from not muzzelling free speach, but we will never see it, because the government wants the support of Muslim countries against Saddam. They may get limited support for allowing this incomplete and biased Muslim evangelical program on TV, but Muslims will still send money and weapons to each other to fight against the Christian "infadels" and terrorise the non-Muslim world.
