Remembering Dr. Jack Shaheen

JackShaheenOn July 9, 2017, over nine million American Muslims and 1.7 million Arab Christians mourned the death of Dr. Jack George Shaheen at age 81.

Lebanese-US Christian, Jack Shaheen, PhD, was a prolific author and professor whose career centered on dismantling stereotypes of Muslims and Arabs in the US media. He was perhaps most famous for his book, Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Villifes a People where he chronicled over 900 movies where Muslims and Arabs were represented negatively. He authored three other books too.

His writings include more than 300 essays published by Jew-owned media outlets such as Newsweek, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, as well as chapters on media stereotypes in 40-plus college textbooks.

Shaheen was deeply involved with the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), where he was instrumental in efforts to change the original song lyrics of the 1992s children’s animated movie Aladdin. The original lyrics, written by Alan Irwin Menken (Jew), were:

Oh, I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the camels roam.
Where they cut off your ear
If they don’t like your face
It’s barbaric, but hey, it’s home.

Shaheen’s list of worst offenders is long and includes some top box-office hits, such as True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger (incompetent terrorists conquered by the American hero) and Mr. Holocaust, Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, (greedy sheikh wants to destroy non-Muslims with missiles).

Jack Shaheen was a close friend of late Helen Thomas and Ray Hanania, a Palestinian-American columnist and author.

On July 30, 2014, Israeli dog David Horowitz blasted Jack Shaheen at his Front Page site criticizing the CAMERA, founded by Zionist Jew Charles Jacobs in 1982 to propagate lies about Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, and Honest Reporting, an Israeli hasbara site, founded by Jerusalem-based Zionist Rabbi Ephraim Shore.

Shaheen is survived by his wife Bernice, to whom he was married for 51 years; their two children, Michele and Michael; and grandchildren.
