Dearbornistan Muslims Get Their Own Cable TV Show
On Sunday, I braced myself to watch the new “reality” series about Muslims residing in this country, because all indications were that it would be a Islamo-diversity propaganda piece.
It seems to suggest that we traditional Americans should welcome Muslim immigration and ignore the threat of nasty jihadist terrorism which has increased in recent years.
“All-American Muslim” (The Learning Channel page here) takes place in Dearbornistan, where Fordson High School is 95 percent Muslim. The viewer learns that Ramadan is tough on football players there because of the daytime fasting required. Apparently infidel athletes don’t fit in, nor is there concern about the separation of mosque and state.
The most cringe-worthy element was the conversion of a young Christian man to Islam so he could marry a Muslim woman. His mother tried to hide her disappointment, though not very successfully. The bride portrays herself as very American, someone who likes country music, but she wants her children to grow up as Allah’s obedient servants. Compared with the lifestyles of Muslims in Lebanon (the background of most), the Dearborn residents may feel very American, but the posing is not convincing.
All the characters emphasize the ways in which they appear assimilated, but most of the women are veiled. Nobody asks unpleasant questions about politics, such as how much support there is for Hezbollah or any other flavors of hostile Islam. Cutesy sit-com music runs in the background to remove any serious questions from the viewer’s mind, like it’s the modern diversity version of Leave It To Beaver.
Below, in Dearbornistan 2004 a woman carried a photo of Ayatollah Khomeini during a political march.
The series is scheduled for eight episodes, so the propaganda has just begun.
In other news of Muslims residing in America, New York activists are teaching other hostiles how to identify police informants in their midst who are looking for terrorist bombers.
Angry over spying, Muslims say: ‘Don’t call NYPD’, Associated Press, November 14, 2011
Fed up with a decade of police spying on the innocuous details of the daily lives of Muslims, activists in New York are discouraging people from going directly to the police with their concerns about terrorism, a campaign that is certain to further strain relations between the two groups.
Muslim community leaders are openly teaching people how to identify police informants, encouraging them to always talk to a lawyer before speaking with the authorities and reminding people already working with law enforcement that they have the right to change their minds. Some members of the community have planned a demonstration for next week.
Some government officials point to this type of outreach as proof that Muslims aren’t cooperating in the fight against terrorism, justifying the aggressive spy tactics, while many in the Muslim community view it as a way to protect themselves from getting snared in a secret police effort to catch terrorists.

This sort of anti-police behavior is not new. Last winter, the Council of American Islamic Relations instructed its followers not to speak with the FBI, by building a “wall of resistance.”
