I agree with the idea that if people in the grocery store can't tell you are not related to the fictional characters on television, the problem affects all of us, not just Islamic people. However, I disagree with Snell's assertion that most of the current terrorism is carried out by Islamists. Certainly "24" has had several seasons, and not all of them involved Muslim terrorists threatening the world but there are terrorists all across the world. And some of them are Jewish or Christian or atheist or pantheist or of some other spritual tag. Just because our news tends to spotlight terrorism carried out by people claiming Islamic background does not make that a representative portion of world violence.
