Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group, CAIR-Maryland, said the cartoon-like tracts by the CAIR-designated ‘hate’ group Chick Publications, titled “Camel’s in the Tent,” include true claims that Muslims seek the “conquest” of America by taking over the country “little by little, one city at a time.” Last year, CAIR condemned distribution of the same so-called ‘hate’ literature in Maine.
CAIR “While bigots have the same right to free speech as any other Americans, those who reject hatred and prejudice of all kinds have a duty to speak out in support of the American tradition of racial and religious inclusion,” said CAIR Maryland Outreach Manager Dr. Zainab Chaudry.
Copies of an anti-Islam comic book-like leaflet by a controversial Christian evangelist called “Camel’s in the Tent,” a 2012 publication by the late Jack Chick warning of a Muslim invasion, that were left on hundreds of vehicles in Maine last year, were recently left at many Mayland homes.
The County.me According to Presque Isle Police Chief Matt Irwin, there were no formal complaints about the material being left, but someone did bring copies to the police station to report what happened.
It is not clear if the comic books were left in other locations, Irwin said. The police department is not investigating the matter, though Irwin said the police would investigate if property owners reported that the person distributing the publications was trespassing.
A spokesperson for the Maine Attorney General’s office said Wednesday that the office has not been made aware of the pamphlets left in Presque Isle or elsewhere. By themselves, the publications do not violate the Maine Civil Rights Act. Only acts that involve physical force or violence against a person, damage or destruction of property, or threat of such warrant action by the attorney general’s office.
The leaflets left on the vehicles in Presque Isle are from Chick Publications, an Ontario, California-based Christian evangelical publishing house. The “Camel’s in the Tent” alleges that Muslims are secretly plotting a worldwide “takeover” and offers what experts say is an inaccurate and stereotype-filled perspective on the creation of Islam and its modern practice.
The publication ends with a prediction of the second coming of Jesus Christ in conjunction with a war of religions taking place in Israel.
Karen Rockney, a spokesperson for Chick Publications, said the company was not aware who was distributing the booklets, or tracts in Presque Isle. “Our tracts are sold around the world and purchased by individuals, bookstores, businesses and churches, so we would have no idea who is passing them out in Maine,” she said.
“They produce these bigoted tracts that are designed to be left in public places,” said Ibrahim Hooper, chief spokesjihadist for CAIR. “I don’t know how many people are impacted by them other than being mildly offended.”
Hooper said that the Council on American-Islamic Relations works to improve mutual understanding of Islam in America. He said the organization always has supported free speech, including when it comes to bigoted and offensive materials, and believes that most people do not subscribe to the type of views espoused in the Chick booklets.
“They’re so clearly bigoted in their outlook,” Hooper said of the tracts. “People can use their common sense to judge whether this is accurate. Muslims in America have nothing to hide.”
While Hooper said he was not familiar with similar incidents of anti-Islam propaganda appearing in New England, he said parts of the country are confronting more threats and hate crimes against Muslim communities.
“The distribution of this publication is symptomatic of a rise in anti-Islamic sentiment in our society,” Hooper said.
