"All American Muslim" is a show to be watched for what it doesn't tell us about Islam and Muslims.

The Shocking Truth about Lowe's and All American Muslim
So you're watching a soccer game in Dearborn, Michigan between Al-Tadamun and Chelsea, a game that was advertised in public leaflets and on theArab American website; it was dedicated to something termed, “The Day of Jerusalem.” The thought of incorporating such a slogan into promotional material about a sporting event puzzles you. What is this “Day of Jerusalem” all about? Later, you discover that the game was hosted by Husham Alhusayni – the main spiritual leader of the Karbala Center in Dearborn – who was thanked by Samir Al-Jabiri and Muhammad Alhasayni who said the victory was “dedicated to honor the souls of the martyrs of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa...”
These are clearly terrorists who murder civilians; such a dedication should spawn outrage but it did not.
The sound of silence in response to such a thing echoed throughout Dearborn's Muslim community. Why did no one object to such hatred, religious bigotry and open support for terrorism?
Husham Alhusayni is not just the imam at Dearborn's Karbala Center; he is also featured in All American Muslim, which airs on The Learning Channel (TLC). In the program, Alhusayni is seen presiding over marriages within Muslim families in Dearborn, whose day-to-day lives are portrayed as they interact in English.
When Sean Hannity attempted to extract a confession from Alhusayni, the double speaking slick-Willy, Alhusayni, repeatedly refused to denounce Hezbollah. Americans were left to wonder if he had decided to plead the fifth, which involves no incrimination. Conversely, when people like Alhusayni have their Arabic translated into English, those same Americans are struck with both shock and awe. Open declarations of public support for Hezbollah to millions is given but is done so in Arabic, of course.
Alhusayni is a signatory to the Jerusalem Document of 2009, which reads more like Mein Kampf. It refers to the war on Zionism as a war between “good and evil.” Zionism is considered an “aggression” that is infecting “the entire human race.” Muslims are told to “get ready for the holy Jihad.”
If one is inclined to believe this is the “struggle within” version of Jihad, the reading of the following phrase after translation should prompt a re-evaluation:
“We remind our sons to get ready to carry out their duty in Holy Jihad and continue the path which our young valiant men in Hezbollah began in Southern Lebanon.”
This message was not given to Muslims in Lebanon but is “essential for the Iraqi community living in the Diaspora,” which includes Dearborn. Several of the top Muslim leaders in the US endorsed this document, like Fadel Al-Sahlani, the official representative of Iraq’s leading Shia religious authority and Muhammad Zaki al-Souajh who was the leading imam of the Muslim community in Houston, Texas for several years, as well as Murtada Qazwini.
It is not just about the dog which the Catholic convert to Islam in All American Muslim had to get rid of because his new Muslim family could not tolerate dogs, which are considered unclean in the Islamic culture; the document also refers to completely ridding the world of Zionism:
“The struggle between good and evil is not measured by a generation. It does not circulate on a specific land. Jerusalem is an Islamic destiny that stems from ancient history into the future indebted to 1/5 of humanity. What it suffers from Zionist aggression does not only encompass the Palestinian borders but the entire human race. It is time for the nations concerned which have influence, that is the US and all its allies, to reconsider their position regarding Zionist aggression.”
The cancer of Zionism does not only concentrate on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict but is considered an infection within “the entire human race.”
If Americans question my translation from Arabic, they can watch for themselves as the All American Muslim Alhusayni lets a few words slip in English (watch 9:24 mark) while appearing to make the point that evil exists in “every nationality” before speaking broadly about the Zionists and equating them with Timothy McVeigh and Jeffrey Dahmer:
“In America, there is Timothy McVeigh... he's evil. Jeffrey Dahmer... he cut the heads off of children and put it in the refrigerator... he's a criminal. Saddam, he's a criminal, killing innocent people. So many Zionists in Palestine, killing innocent people.”
Perhaps a nuanced show consisting of the real American Muslim at the Karbala Center would have provided a more accurate portrayal of beliefs – political aspirations and all – including the all black cloaks that cover each woman entirely, save for a small portion of the face—a far cry from the decorative attire that appears on the television show.
