Salam Cafe

IN case you didn't know about it, Australia was the first Western country to have a comedy series making fun about Islamic stereotypes (Islamophobic and other). That show is called "Salam Cafe":

Episode about Islamophobia in Camden http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeQPAJt6caU
Episode about Islamic school proposal being rejected http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIXfSpieEZs&feature=channel

Making fun of the beach riot over the hijab:

This clip I love, it's an instructional video for non-muslims about working with Muslims:

Enjoy!

Cheers.

Milda: LOL, I manage to blog when my husband is watching football games. I manage to research Islamic subjects by puting away an hour before bed to study after salat ooooor on my commute to work (I bus it instead of driving). I do work full time, plus attend social functions, sew my own clothes (from formal to abayaat), lol, plus am a married woman, so I have little to next to nothing in the way of spare time. INshaAllah I have given my notice at my work and I will start wearing niqab and finding other work at the end of August. LOL, make dua for me I'll manage to still keep busy. I am an attenion deficit kind of person.

Awww, I miss Salam Cafe! They haven't shown it in so long. They used to play it at like 10:30 Wednesday nights and my husband and I would run from wherever we were to watch it hahah. They were so funny!
