Why Everyone Needs to Learn Foreign Languages

Since I don't subscribe to Showtime, I've never actually seen Homeland, though I understand many think the show uses several stereotypes in its portrayal of the Muslim world. Certainly their research is lacking; when you hire someone to write Arabic graffiti for your set, you should make sure it doesn't say "Homeland is racist" and similar things before you actually air the episode.
