House, and the House of Islam

Were the curmudgeonly atheistic Dr. House of House to show, on an upcoming episode, as much of his characteristically sardonic, witty and politically incorrect disdain for Islam as he has already shown towards Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and Hinduism, I would credit the show with cojones. As it stands, its studied avoidance of the I word -- underscored by its demonstrated ability to tilt at other religions -- renders the daring free-thinker's cynicism it claims to present rather hollow.
