The St. Louis-based children's publisher Really Big Coloring Books is in hot water this week. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamic supremacist groups are enraged, and Really Big Coloring Books is even receiving threats from enraged Muslims—all because of We Shall Never Forget, a coloring book that dares to portray the Islamic jihadists who attacked us on 9/11 as ... Islamic jihadists.
With no sense of irony whatsoever, CAIR's Dawud Walid thundered: "This publisher is doing a disservice to innocent young minds by showing this type of nonsense. Every single reference to Muslims in [the book] has to do with radical extremists and depictions of people being terrorists."
Well, Walid, maybe if radical, extremist, terrorist Muslims, acting in the name of Islam and motivated by Islamic teaching, hadn't murdered 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001, a coloring book about that terrible day would depict Muslims in a different way. But of course, this is the one truth that Hamas-linked CAIR and its allies and useful idiots would most like to obfuscate, so as to more easily advance their narrative that Muslims are victims and the problem is really "Islamophobia."
