You don't get to demand condemnation of a text on the sole grounds that it is unfriendly to a religion practiced by a persecuted minority. Your complaint needs to have some actual, you know, substance.

If the depiction is racist, then the fact that it is directed at an oppressed minority is an aggravating circumstance. But you have to demonstrate that it actually is racist before you can begin invoking aggravating circumstances.
