Westerners' don't have to look far to see Muslims these days. More than 12 million now live throughout Europe. Their men are frequently on the covers of major newspapers and magazines, usually screaming and angry. Their women are regularly pictured in headscarves, veils, or dark full body garments, said to represent the intolerance and oppressiveness of their religion. And Islam's Prophet Muhammed is seen in either offensive portrayals, or as the obsession of intolerant, angry Muslim men screaming about those portrayals. No, one doesn't have to look very hard to see Muslims in the Western press anymore. But is what we see accurate?
