I just got an email from the folks at Muxlim.com informing me that they have just selected the Arab in America Trailer to be one of their featured videos!

Yay!

For those of you who don’t know, Muxlim.com is an internet Muslim lifestyle community that tries to bring Muslims from all around the world together in a positive setting promoting Muslim values… The web network, much like a Facebook/Myspace media sharing hub for Muslims, has become one of the fastest social networks on the internet. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend that you do! And while you’re there, leave a comment on the Arab in America Trailer!
