Publisher Introduces Sick Anti-Muslim 9/11 Coloring Book for Kids

911coloringbook

The Guardian reports on a new coloring book for kids, called We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids Book of Freedom:

One page of the $6.99 book, which has been given a PG rating, shows Bin Laden hiding behind a hijab-wearing woman as he is shot by a Navy SEAL. "Being the elusive character that he was, and after hiding out with his terrorist buddies in Pakistan and Afghanistan, American soldiers finally locate the terrorist leader Osama bin Laden," runs the text accompanying the picture. "Children, the truth is, these terrorist acts were done by freedom-hating radical Islamic Muslim extremists. These crazy people hate the American way of life because we are FREE and our society is FREE."

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has condemned the book as "disgusting", saying that it characterises all Muslims as linked to extremism, terrorism and radicalism, which could lead children reading the book to believe that all Muslims are responsible for 9/11, and that followers of the Islamic faith are their enemies.

Finally, something the entire Teabagger family can enjoy.

Watch the publisher talk about the book, AFTER THE JUMP...

ps - does that frame seem familiar to anyone?

  1. I think this is way too heavy a topic to introduce to children through a coloring book, but this PC historical revisionism has got to stop. It is not "anti-Muslim" to say that on 9/11 we were attacked by Muslim extremists? 19 out of the 19 hijackers were Muslim Extremists. Why does the Left want so badly to ignore this historical fact? Why is it politically incorrect to say that 90-something% of Muslims are decent people, but some are crazy and want you dead?

  2. Just curious, Beto, where do you get your "90-something%"? I think that number is too high.

    From Pew Research, 2006:

    Support for Suicide Bombing and Violence Against Civilians Declines. Violence against civilian targets justified - Often/Sometimes

    Jordan 57%
    Lebanon 39%
    Pakistan 25%
    Indonesia 15%
    Turkey 14%
    Morocco 13%

    Based on Muslim respondents only.

    Note that this is a *decline*.

  3. It's factually incorrect and glorifies violence, but then maybe it's for adult conservatives instead of children? Coloring books are generally for people who can't read, so the whole back story here is going to go over their heads.

  5. @MAX:"Who are we going to pretend hijacked commercial jets into the WTC, then?"

    Um, Al-Qaeda? Oh wait, we don't need to pretend since they admitted it. It's also more succinct and easier to type than "radical muslim extremists."
