“All-American Muslim” Debuts On TLC

DETROIT (WWJ) – Five Arab-American families from Dearborn will be the stars of a new reality tv series which begins airing Sunday night on TLC.  The regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Imad Hamad, welcomes the series.

Reportedly, a Facebook page has started with calls to boycott the show, because it says it’s trying to make America accept Islam without showing the truth.  Hamad says people can see the show and judge for themselves.

He says there will be isolated voices with negative attitudes when it comes to Islam … something they can’t be concerned about because it’s America and they’re entitled to their opinion.

“I invite all just to have a chance to see it and learn … something new or add to what they know about Muslim-Americans where they are projected in the right, positive image,” Hamad said.

“And there will be many folks, unfortunately, many isolated voices that will , regardless what it is … when it comes to the fate of Islam … they gonna have this negative attitude … this is not our concern. They are not worthy of our attention.  They are free to do what they like. This is America. God bless America,” said Hamad.

“All-American Muslim” will air Sunday night on TLC.
