i am a dual israeli and us citizen. i am very obviously jewish (beard peyos etc). i would want to fly eithad from del-auh-amm-tlv using aa miles.
will they allow me to enter auh using my american passport, for a full day stop to tour a little?
i will have to be carrying my israeli passport as i am on my way back home.
is there a way to ticket it as del-tlv with stops in auh and amm on aa, or do i have to ticket it del-amm, and a separate ticket amm-tlv?

No problem ticketing to TLV.
They will let you in, no problem.

I was actually in Dubai last week (entered with USA passport) they asked where I live I said Israel they pulled us over to the side and messed around with us for about 20 minutes asked questions... but let us through in the end.

I ordered kosher food in Dubai from Eli's https://www.elliskosherkitchen.com/
Take in mind their milk is NOT cholov yisroel, so we just ordered fish meals which was very good.
They know all about the minyanim ask them.

It could work. Maybe something as follows:
8am- Burj Khalifa
10am- Gold Souk
11am- Drive to Abu Dhabi
1PM- Ferrari World
When you're done at Ferrari World head to the Mosque. It's open til 10pm I believe.
For an optimal Mosque experience, I'd go when you get to Abu Dhabi to see it during daytime hours, and then again before you leave to see it at night.

Check out Google photos and see if you'd rather see it by night, day, or both. It gives a very different impression.
