NEWYORKUSTAN: American Muslim Series
I’m not sure what to make of this yet—a non-Muslim friend just sent it to me. It looks like it’s going to be a web-based production. I’ve never heard of any of the creators, but I’m sure I’ll be hearing plenty soon.
Coming right on the heels of All-American Muslim this bound to raise some hackles. Oy vey—growing pains. I guess they can’t be avoided if we’re ever going to be accepted. If nothing else, I suppose at least this will be the last year that American Muslims can be accused of not speaking out. It should prove interesting to find out who, if anyone, actually had any intention of listening…
Three friends from Queens, New York band together to save their local mosque from eviction. As they navigate New York City’s red tape, they discover darker, more sinister forces at work. Meanwhile, within the community, greed and extremism threaten to tear the mosque apart.
