Controversy over "All-American Muslim"

There's a current controversy in the United States this week about advertisers who withdrew ads vrom a television show called "All-American Muslim" in response to an organization claiming the show "falsely humanized Muslims in America.”  We received a noted from the "My Fellow American Project," asking us to remind readers of this blog that the telelvision advertising controversy has exposed more Islamophobia in America.  Readers are asked to visit www.myfellowamerican.us to share views about this controversy.  The website hopes to spread the message of tolerance to fight back against intolerance and fear-mongering. They have just posted a host of new content from various entertainers and faith leaders on the topic.
