Does Hollywood also appease islam like Bollywood does ??

This person on a Hollywood movie discussion forum seems to think so---

Just wondering if we'll ever see a lot of Radical Islamic Terrorists depicted on screen as the "bad guys." I'm asking because I'm remembering the movies that came out during and after WWII which had no problem showing Germans & Japanese as the enemy.

There are lots of movies out about terrorists, but I guess due to political correctness, the terrorists are usually depicted as white Europeans or generic, nondescript foreign types.

Aside from movies that are historical, biographical or docu-dramas (such as "United 93"), the last couple movies I recall that actually depicted Islamic Terrorists came out before 9/11/2001 ("True Lies" and "Executive Decision" both portrayed Islamic Terrorists).

It just seems strange that Islamic Terrorism has been at war with the West for a long time, the U.S. has been attacked multiple times by Islamic Terrorists, Radical Islam is carrying out a holocaust in the middle east & throughout Africa and is warring on civilization as we speak, yet it's rare to find terrorists depicted as Islamic Extremists in movies (whereas, in other wars, Hollywood had no problem naming the people warring on the U.S. and its allies).

In a way its good that radical islami terrorists are not shown on screen. It would acknowledge their presence and the film would become study material for trainee jihadis.

It would be spending money to glorify them.

Old movies like Delta Force or True lies didnt seem to be appeasing.

Bollywood appeases but does not shy away from showing extremists as Muslims. Or does it?
