I went to a benefit last night at the American Islamic Congress. A wonderful comedian, Dean Obeidallah, performed (he’s been on Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central). Obeidallah, whose father is Palestinian and mother Italian, was born and raised in New Jersey. He turns his wry wit on current events and the dilemmas of being Muslim in the US. I found this clip on YouTube, but if you can ever see him perform live, he’s hilarious.
