TLC promotes an air-brushed version of Islam that lowers defenses against a totalitarian ideology.
Part of the whitewash at “All-American Muslim” involves some of the program stars themselves. One of the American-born leads, Suehaila Amen, is a devout Shi’ite Muslim who wears the hijab and, just days after the 9/11 attacks, wrote a letter to a Lebanese newspaper, declaringÂ LebanonÂ her “homeland” and America as a place where “everyone is your enemy.”
The Imam featured in the series,Â Husham Al- Husainy, who marries Jeff, the Catholic who converted to Islam, and Shadia Amen was actually featured on Sean Hannity’s program on Fox News back in 2007. Al-Husainy is a radical Muslim who refused to answer Hannity’s questions regarding Hisballah and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and instead went on an angry ranting spree. Â (more)
All-American Muslim (1/2)
Here’s something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. The American people are seeing through theÂ propaganda pieceÂ that is TLC’sÂ All-American Muslimreality/dawah show, and responsible advertisers are fleeing in droves. The show aims to combat a trumped-up problem, “Islamophobia,” by presenting Muslims who are just ordinary folk, and mostly non-religious — while of course the only reason why anyone is concerned about Muslims in the first place is not because of those who are opening up clubs and going about ordinary lives, but because of those who take serious and act upon the doctrines that mandate warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers.
“Advertisers fleeing ‘All-American Muslim’ ‘propaganda’: Sears, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, others drop support for program,” by Bob Unruh forÂ World Net Daily, November 22:
“All-American Muslim,” a new program on The Learning Channel that is being touted as a “powerful series” that carries viewers “inside the rarely seen world of American Muslims,” is being dropped by advertisers.
Critics say the program is nothing more than video jihad propaganda, and the Florida Family Association says it is contacting companies whose advertising appears on the show to ask them to quit. So far, 18 of 20 companies contacted have done so, the group said.
The organization said that among the companies that initially supported the program, but later did not have any advertising aired, were Airborne Vitamin, Amway, Diamond Foods, Dyson Vacuum, Estee Lauder, HTC Phones, Home Depot, McDonald’s, Petsmart, Pfizer, Sears, Sonic, T-Mobil and Wal-Mart.
The Florida group said it sent out an email alert to constituents only a week ago, who then contacted the sponsors.
“The Learning Channel’s new show ‘All-American Muslim’ is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Shariah law,” the organization’s report on its work said. “The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish.”
The association cited a “troubling scene” in which a Muslim police officer stated, “I really am American. No ifs, ands or buts about it.”
“This scene would appear to be damage control for the Dearborn [Mich.] police who have arrested numerous Christians including several former Muslims for peacefully preaching Christianity,” the association report said.
“Dearborn police falsely arrested Nabeel Qureshi and Paul Rezkalla in 2010 and Sudanese Christian Pastor George Saieg in 2009 for preaching Christianity at the annual Arab International Festival,” the report said.
The association’s suggested message from consumers to sponsors said the show is trying to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and Shariah, which is Islamic religious law.
The report said Dearborn, the site of the biggest mosque in North America, is one of the most densely populated Muslim communities in the United States. In recent years, it has gained national attention for taking a pro-Muslim stance and for the arrest and intimidation of Christian evangelists for engaging in protected speech activity, the report said.
The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm, has handled several legal disputes over the arrests of those individuals.
“But Americans aren’t suspicious of Muslims who are trying to get married, open clubs, and play football. Americans are suspicious of Muslims who are trying to blow up American buildings, subvert American freedoms, and assert the primacy of Islamic law over American law. The problem people have with Islam is not with every Muslim person. It is with Islam’s teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation,” the report said….
