    A DECADE since the September 11 attacks and many Americans still don't know quite what to make of their 2.75 million Muslim compatriots.

    Could a reality TV series help?

    "All-American Muslim," which premieres Sunday on the TLC cable channel, lifts the veil on five Arab American families in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan and finds their lives are, in many ways, not so un-American at all.
    There's the Amen family, whose outspoken tattooed daughter Shadia is engaged to an Irish American from Chicago who accepts her family's request to convert to Islam on the eve of their wedding - and upsets his Catholic mother.
    Newlywed twenty-somethings Nader and Nawal Aoude embrace teamwork like a new-age couple as they prepare for the birth of their first child, even as they adhere to a devout Islamic lifestyle.

    Nina Bazzy is a glamorous blond party planner on a collision course with both her traditional-minded parents and the wider community over her bold plan to open her own trendy nightclub.

    Mike Jaafar upholds the law as Dearborn's deputy chief sheriff, while his wife Angela tries to keep their four high-strung children in line in one of those big suburban houses that signifies the American dream.

    And the patriarch of the Zaban family, Fouad "Haj Walker" Zaban, is as passionate about his religious obligations as he is about leading the high school football team he coaches to the Michigan state championship.

    "It seemed like a really, really good opportunity to dispel some of these misconceptions that we've been dealing with all our lives," Shadia Amen told AFP on Thursday, explaining why she agreed to do the show.
    "We're not here to represent Islam. We're just five American families who happen to be Muslim."

    All five families live in Dearborn, an industrial city of 100,000 that may be better known for North America's biggest mosque than for being the home of the Ford Motor Company.

    Three-quarters of Dearborn's residents are of Arab heritage. Many trace their roots to Lebanon - the Amens hail from the Bekaa Valley - and all felt the chill of suspicion after the September 11 attacks in 2001.

    That chill lingers. Earlier this year, a Public Religion Research Institute survey indicated that nearly one in two Americans felt uncomfortable at the sight of women in burqas or a group of men praying to Allah in an airport.
    Sixty-eight percent said they seldom or never interacted with Muslims, and 47 percent thought Islamic values don't jibe with American ones.

    On the other hand, a concurrent Pew Research Center poll revealed that 48 percent of Muslim Americans think other Americans are generally friendly to them. Muslims were also more satisfied with the way the United States is going.
    "All-American Muslim" includes eight episodes, with part one on Sunday seeing bridegroom Jim McDermott converting to Islam before his future in-laws as his bride-to-be Shadia Amen looks on, wearing a "not a terrorist" T-shirt.

    Shadia then dons a hijab for a religious marriage ceremony led by a witty imam, before a full-on reception - apparently modest by Dearborn standards, with just 400 guests - that features both belly dancing and an Irish jig.

    Hard-driving coach Zaban meanwhile wonders how to prepare the teenagers on his mainly Muslim team for a crucial game during the holy fasting month of Ramadan, when even a sip of water is prohibited before sundown.

    The solution: training after dark, right up to 4:00 am. ( non muslims who objected where cut from the team for lack of team spirit newsmax story )

    Future episodes will find deputy chief Jaafar addressing prejudice and discrimination among his fellow law enforcement agents while his wife juggles her career in the automotive industry with the demands of raising a family.

    "It's not like you can lump us all together," Amen told AFP, referring not only to her fellow cast members, but also the wider Arab American community. "We are so diverse."

    What's missing here is the fact that all Muslims must abide by Sharia Law. Muslim or Islamic law, covers both civil and criminal justice, as well as regulating individual conduct both personal and moral. Because, by definition, Muslim states are theocracies, religious texts are law, the latter distinguished by Islam and Muslims in their application, as sharia or sharia law. This will not jibe with American Law, or our Constitution. And don't get me started on the Qurans directives for non-muslim religions! I won't be watching this show, as it is nothing more than some dumb jerk Anti-American view point! I love your opening line Jack! "Brought to you by CAIR TV and HAMAS ( supporting cast by the Muslim Brotherood and global socialism)". We should all boycott this kind of stupidity, make some phone calls, emails, or something! The TLC (The Learning Channel) is part of the Discovery Channel, along with Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and Discovery Health.

    I will no longer watch any of your programs! There is no way for a Muslim to become an American as long as they continue to follow the Quran! Sharia Law can not exist in America untill the American Legal system is overthrown, and is not compatible with our Constitution! What I sent them!

    All an American has to do to become a Muslim, is to be sent to an American prison. The percentage of folks converting while serving time in prison, is rising.

    While Muslims may tune in, I really can't see anyone else having enough interest that they'd waste their time watching this dreck.

    Juker it'll be a tool to show the nitwits what islam "is really like"

    and they'll gobble it up

    they did similar in the UK some 12-15 years ago , the twits are still parroting the BS that came out .. Religion of peace started there second episode .. Choudary back when he was a pot smoking beer drinking uni student who got 45 seconds of air time total in 5 episodes

    look where that got us

    now everywhere its the religion of peace

    no juker nothing good will come of this , its a tool and it will be the facts
    it will show us all and anyone who dont fall for it will be a racist

    next if i remember right they'll want to rename muslins to "asians"

    so its a asian crime ..

    love the UK , its the blue print for us all ... if we care to look ..

    It is frightening to me the direction the US is going. Most frightening is the tolerance of the "media" to radical islam and it's threat to our/their way of life. I just don't get the complacency. Gotta be pure ignorance................We will pay the price in the long run...............

    Shaping public opinion has become a science. Test groups are exposed to commercials for various products, campaign ads, etc. Their reactions are studied, correlated.....

    It's been going on for a long time. This is only one example. The media is not "tolerant"; their job is to make you tolerant.

    This is only possible for those that hate America, and authority of our laws! Since the convict hates America, why not join a "religion" that hates America!

    90 % of 'reality ' TV is such an obvious idiotic set-up that it makes people with common sense just laugh at it. I listen to folks talk about the "ice road truckers" and discuss how worried they were about this one or that one getting stranded out there and freezing to death -
    HEY, JERK! THEY CAN GET IN ONE OF THE CAMERA CREW VANS AND KEEP WARM!!
    These are ALL STAGED, there is NO REALITY TO IT!!!

    Operation Repo was one I watched for a few episodes because I used to BE a repo man, then asked myself "What company would hire people that looked and acted like this to go out in public and represent THEM??"
    The answer is, of course NONE! It is STAGED, it is NOT REAL. This idiotic looking bunch are ACTORS, not real people. No one looking or acting like them would EVER be accepted as representatives of any legitimate business.

    And this crud involving Muslims is no different.
    This is how public opinion is formed along the lines that the left leaning Hollywood faction desires.
    Give them a reality show.
    Convince them Islamics are just people like the rest of us.

    And a ton of idiots will buy it.

    It's about time people finally learned what peaceful, fun loving, and patriotic citizens muslims are. And to think that all this time we've been supporting Jewish terrorism against the poor peaceful muslims in the middleeast. Ah the guilt. I just can't live with myself.

    What really burns me up the most about this sort of thing is that the folks that watch this show (those of us who already know the truth won't watch it) will come away thinking, "Oh yeah, they're just another peaceful religion, and those that oppose them have it all wrong". I was talking to a fellow employee at the PO one day, and he made a statement about something we were all talking about. I asked him where he got his information, and he says "I saw it on TV"! Now TV has got to be the place to learn the truth about anything!!!!
