The same tiresome, horseshit parianoia...the same simplistic view of the region and it's issues (in spite of all of it's labored patina of sophistication)...the same tired wine in newer, brighter bottles.
Not every season of 24 had middle eastern terrorists. Sometimes the terrorists were Russian, once they were British, one time they were Serbian and a lot of times the bad guys were Americans. Heck, season 5 the ultimate bad was the president of the united states.

Also isn't Homeland based off a show from Israel?
