Showtime’s new series on terrorism converts U.S. Marine into Muslim

via Inside ‘Homeland,’ the Terrorism Tale Turned TV Triumph – ABC News.

In “Homeland’s” universe, the men and women tasked with keeping our country safe drink heavily, pop pills and view sex as part of the job. Terrorists have succeeded in capturing a Marine sergeant, keeping him in a hole for eight years and converting the church-going dad into an Allah worshipper, if not an undercover terrorist too.

Lewis, the British actor who plays Sgt. Nicholas Brody, finds himself “waiting for, I don’t know, the hostility” that some viewers might hurl at him.

“There is no greater symbol of what it is to defend our freedom and defend our way of life than a U.S. Marine,” Lewis said. “To see a U.S. Marine possibly undergoing a change of heart, a change of mind, a change of attitude, to have been challenged to a point where he questions his loyalties and replaces them with a different belief system, that’s going to be controversial and it’s going to be shocking for some people.”

So is he? Or isn’t he?

“Ultimately, we’re trying to challenge the assumption that just because Brody’s converted to Islam, he’s a terrorist,” said Gansa. “He reached out to religion because he had nothing else in the middle of this horrible experience. You’re meant to swing back and forth.”

A former CIA agent characterized “Homeland’s” version as “highly inaccurate,” but according to Gansa and Gordon, that’s part of the point.

Showtime previously had a series (Sleeper Cell – American Terror) about Muslims terrorists in the U.S. plotting to kill Americans. It was canceled after two interesting seasons and the homepage now has an Islamic dictionary and a video about Muslims in tv.

  1. I hope somewhere along the line it is mentioned that if this marine ever regains his senses (assuming the story is true), he will be killed as per his present cult’s requirements. No religion demands death for apostasy, but Islam and the Mafia do.

    • Islam is indeed a basic religious crime SYNDICATE;APPARENTLY THE CRIMINALS IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT are very interested in consolidating all crime syndicates into one REVIVED-ROMAN -EMPIRE…..ROMAN BECAUSE ROME WAS KNOWN AS A NATION OF LAWS…LAWS THAT BENIFITED A FEW DUE TO THE ROMAN LOBBIES INGRATIATING THEMSELVES ON ELECTED .THAT IS APPOINTED OFFICIALS……….Islam is a crime syndicate ;it cannot be overstated;the STATE DEPT HEAD DOCTORS are simply trying to spin a web of deceit as they incorporate The Middle -East into their ROYAL EMPIRE……….THE DOG ALWAYS RETURNS TO HIS VOMIT..I am afraid that divine intervention is the only end-game to all of this futile attempt at comempt for R.E.A.S.O.N.A.B.L.E.

  2. What these scum are trying to say is that pisslam is inevitable: I would say the end of pisslam is inevitable. I bet no US actor wanted to play the part, English ones will do anything for money!!

  3. Hypocrits! Marines are out terrorizing the world regardless of their religion. I’ll let you in on a secret, the Marine was a terrorist to begin with which is why he converted to Islam. He already served the spirit of hate and murder in the military before he ever converted to Islam. He just finally managed to find a religion that actually approves and condones his wickedness.

  4. Cameo has it bacwards, he must be a Muslim. Marines do not terrorize the world, Muslims do. Marines are trained to defend our country.

  5. I was interested at first because I like Lewis as an actor. But the more I hear about it, the more confused I become. Is this going to be more Hollywood propaganda about how All Muslims Are Not Terrorists but Most Soldiers Are? Or something else? I’m certainly not going to become invested in it, only to be kicked in the teeth, as it were.

  6. Bottom Line: Pisslam is antithetical to US values, and Marines are trained to support and protect those values. Granted, they’re also trained to be cold-blooded killers – but only bec. (1) they need to steel themselves against enemy cold-blooded killers, and (2) they hold their mission – to protect the USA and its citizens – to be a top priority. For the most part, of course, they’re also men and women of faith; but their heads are screwed on straight and they don’t confuse religion and war (that’s for the muzzies!). And if their commanding officers see any deviation from this straight-arrow outlook and mentality, they are relieved of duty – ’cause that’s NOT in the interest or the M.O. of the Corps!! Semper Fi!!!

  7. ooooo… blondie needs to cover her blonde hair or she will find herself as a sex slave crapping on a glass table with a sheik underneath watching… (we used to have girls on our ship that got paid to do this!) Gross!!
