So while I was waiting for the AP to run their regularly scheduled sob story about how this 9/11 will be a day like no other for the Muslims (like the story they ran last year, and the year before that,) I caught this story from Gateway Pundit.
It seems a St Louis coloring book publisher has put out a coloring book about 9/11. This coloring book was designed to help children understand 9/11. From the publisher's website:
To the American people and all others who may read this child's coloring book, We Shall Never Forget is designed to be a tool that parents can use to help teach children about the facts surrounding 9/11. This book also describes basic freedoms in America. We suggest parental guidance. As the 9/11 events are shown countless times on national media, this book will help children understand the meaning of these events. The book was created with honesty, integrity, reverence, respect and does not shy away from the truth.In this book you will see what happens to a terrorist who orders others to bomb our peace loving wonderful nation.
The September 11, 2001 attacks on America are now commonly referred to as 9/11. It was a series of coordinated attacks by a radical Islamic Muslim extremist terrorist group who call themselves Al Qaeda. They were self-proclaimed Jihadists; many American people refer to them as homicide bombers. their leader was a Saudi national named Osama Bin Laden. He and his men used hijacked U.S. airplanes as weapons. A total of 3,000+ innocent people from over 70 countries were killed. There were no survivors from any of the airplanes.
So the publishers tried to be respectful and honest and help children truly understand what happened on 9/11. They have succeeded. Would you like to know how I know?
Because CAIR, the Council of American Islamic Relations, is having a hissy fit. From St Louis CBS:
Taking heat from Muslim groups upset with a coloring book about the 9/11 Attacks, a publisher says he’s been in contact with local police and the FBI.
Wayne Bell, the Publisher of Really Big Coloring Books, Inc., says there’s been a negative backlash against the book “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom.”
“These are people from Al-Jazeera that have called in here numerous times, people from Iranian TV, people from Palestinian Hamas TV,” Bell said, “A lot of people from the Islamic community have called in here and said increasingly negative things prior to the book being made and then after we made the book too, about the book itself.”
The book features images of Osama Bin Laden and Islamic terrorists. It also shows American citizens upset by the attacks, including a woman with a cross around her neck. But it shows no Muslim Americans mourning the attacks.
The Council on American Islamic Relations has criticized the book as one-sided, only portraying Muslims as either “extremists” or “terrorists. ”
Alright CAIR. Now explain why all those Muslims were dancing in the streets once they got word of what happened to us (not you, mind you. If you think I'll believe your taqqiya about being patriotic Americans, you've got another guess coming.)
Bell was asked to explain the absence of patriotic Muslim Americans in the book who were also opposed to the attacks.
“Well, I don’t know, I mean this is what our research showed us,” Bell said, “Every time we mention one of the hijackers we call them what they are. And that’s what parents wanted. Radical, Islamic, Muslim Extremists. And every time we mention one of the hijackers like the three guys that drove the plane into the Pentagon, there’s nothing else you can call them. I mean, what do think, they’re having a bad hair day?”
The good news is that despite the Muslim backlash, these books have been selling well. I hope they continue to sell well. CAIR, first you have to find a couple of patriotic 'Muslim Americans' (taqqiya again) and hope they aren't honor-killed before they can express their pro-American feelings. Assuming they have any. In the meantime, CAIR, do us a favor, alright? STICK A FORK IN IT!!! 9/11 is not about you and the liars and thieves you represent! It's about the damage that your cult caused to my country, and if you don't like it, don't let the door hit you on the way out!!!
And with that, I shall resume waiting for the regularly scheduled sob story.
