Viewers watching the American Football Conference championship game between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots earlier this month may have seen a Best Buy commercial for a Sharp 60-inch television that seemed ordinary, but in one way was extraordinary.
The ad shows a young, clean-shaven salesman named Mustafa talking about the television, advising customers and relaxing at home watching movies and football with his friends.
“I’m never going to get these guys out of here,” he jokes to his girlfriend at the end. [note the scarf suggesting the girlfriend is a pious Muslim]
While the commercial never identifies Mustafa as a Muslim, many might assume that given his name, a diminutive for Muhammad. For viewers used to seeing negative images of Muslims on television, the commercial was a rare exception.
“He has all the right stuff,” said Timothy de Waal Malefyt, a longtime advertising executive who now teaches at Fordham University in New York. “He has a girlfriend. He has Anglo friends. And he’s watching ‘Despicable Me’ and football. It’s very American.”
Muslims in commercials are still rare, but that could be changing as the acceptance of Muslims accelerates across America.
Is Best Buy being influenced or advised by terror-linked Muslim groups? Keep in mind that Best Buy sponsored Hamas-linked CAIR’s annual banquet. When questioned about it, Best Buy Affirmed its Support for the Hamas front group. The terror-linked group even went so far as to threaten a survey website for hosting a petition against Best Buy but their legal jihad failed when the facts were proven true. One has to wonder if Mustafa supports CAIR, Hamas or other terror groups.

Mustafa is the primary transliteration of the Arabic given name, Arabic: مصطفى, Muṣṭafā. The name is an epithet of Muhammad that means, The Chosen One. It is a very common male given name, throughout the Muslim world.
