No So All-american Muslims on TLC

Not all of any group are all bad or all good, but some of these folks featured on the TLC show "All-American Muslim" do seem to be the type that support the War Against Israel / The West calling for "end to apartheid", pulling the plug on Israel and pulling out of Afghanistan, Iraq and complaining about the killings of Bin Laden and Awalaki. If you follow the Facebook profiles of some of the folks who post on the Ron Paul facebook groups, they lead directly into all kinds of networks of pro-Muslim, anti-Israel groups and sometimes pro-Jihad/ Arab / Egypt / Libyan spring..

Anyone who declares that "America is where everyone is your enemy" sounds a bit less than All-American.

There are certainly far-leftly Occupy Oakland type Asian Americans who are just as anti-Israel and pro-Jihad, but they will never be on a show like this one. China is becoming a big military threat, but the number of Chinese, Korean or Japanese Americans being caught trying to set off bombs or crash airliners in the name of Mao Tse Tung, Dear Leader or Emporer Hirohito  since 9/11 (no, since WWII) has been ZERO, while the number of  radicalized Muslims For Violent Jihad who make it to the evening news seems to be every other week, and every day worldwide.

Few Americans know that the first famous incident of Palestinean terror was the shooting of Robert Kennedy in 1968 Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, who nobody know was a Christian Arab born in Jerusalem who strongly opposed Israel. Mainstream media protrayed it as a random shooting by a lone nut, but In 1989, he told David Frost "My only connection with Robert Kennedy was his sole support of Israel and his deliberate attempt to send those 50 bombers to Israel to obviously do harm to the Palestinians". Some scholars believe that the assassination was one of the first major incidents of political violence stemming from the Arab Israeli conflict in the Middle East.

Indeed some Asian Americans have had ties to the worldwide Jihad including the Virginia Jihad network. Anyone can support the Global Muslim Movement as many white nationalists groups and persons such as Stormfront, David Duke, and countless Ron Paul fans in additional to the usual leftist OWS types all untied by "All Ameridcan Anti-semitism" have also thrown their support to the Arab / Palestine side against Israel. There is even a list of over 7000 "Jews for Jihad" whose support for the Arab cause against Israel, zionism and the Jews is completely obviouis.

We cannot and should not profile any group, but we cannot either declare any group off limits when they send e-mails to radical imams, use Al Queda articles on how to make bombs in your kitchen, or declare suupport for suicide bombers or that US soldiers should be targets, or not participate in "wars against muslims". Prejudice means using group membership to assume somebody is guilty or INNOCENT just because of their group, and we need to judge people by their actions and beliefs if we are to figure out which people are loyal Americans, and which ones are loyal first to Jihad against Israel and America, whether they are Arab, South Asian or even Chinese or Korean.

"All-American Muslim": A Little Taqiyya on the Prairie

That every Muslim believer does not behave in conformance with such fundamental tenets of the faith is obvious and to be acknowledged with relief. Unfortunately, though, television shows that gloss over the reality of Islamic ideology not only obscure the full truth about Islam from non-Muslims who then remain unprepared to defend against its hostile elements, but also leave no space for Muslims who themselves oppose jihadist terrorism, inequality between Muslims and non-Muslims, misogyny, honor killings, the apostasy death penalty, and vicious hudud punishments. This is why the new TLC series might more accurately be called “A Little Taqiyya on the Prairie.” Taqiyya, of course, is the sanctioned Islamic practice of deceit and dissimulation to defend or promote Islam. 
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, declaring Lebanon her “homeland” and America as a place where “everyone is your enemy.” It is unclear whether Amen knew at the time of the deep involvement of the Iranian terror proxy, Lebanese Hizballah, in the 9/11attacks. Amen serves as 1st Vice President of the Lebanese American Heritage Club of Dearborn, MI, which has sponsored openly antisemitic, anti-Israel, and pro-Hizballah rallies and whose founder, Ali Jawad, was fired from the 2008 John McCain presidential campaign because of his alleged ties to Hizballah. On 21 June 2011, the Club held a boisterous rally in support of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, even as that dictator’s security forces were gunning down unarmed protestors in the streets. Club members also rallied against former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and cheered his ouster in February 2011, an event that cleared the way for the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to power there. Amen also organized fundraising banquets in 2010 and 2011 for the Michigan Chapter of the CAIR Action Network; according to the U.S. Department of Justice, CAIR is the U.S. branch of the HAMAS terror organization, itself an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
