The hit television series “Homeland” has been accused of Islamophobia since its first season on American television.

There are views on both sides. See for example, “Homeland is the most bigoted show on television“. Also see also “Homeland is not Islamophobic despite what some critics claim“.

The series made news while shooting season 5 in Berlin. Local Arabs, asked by the show’s producers to paint background graffita on a wall in Arabic, scribbled “Homeland is racist”. For more on that, see this story in the Guardian: “Homeland is racist: artists sneak subversive graffiti on to TV show“.
