Designated terrorist group CAIR’s perpetual whiners demonstrated in Washington and several other U.S. cities against a get-well card they say is offensive to Islam. Officials at Chicago-based Recycled Paper Greetings responded that the card is meant to be funny and, despite two death threats, won’t be pulled from stores.
Washington Post The card’s cover features a veiled woman and the words:
“Rather than confront her morbid fear of germs, Millicent changed her name to Yazmine and moved to Tehran.”
Inside are the lines:
“So, you’re feeling like Shiite. Don’t Mecca big deal out of it.”
“The card perpetuates stereotypical and bigoted sentiments toward Muslims that create a climate of hostility,” said Ibrahim ‘Dougie’ Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Washington. “… It’s like someone issuing a card showing the crematoriums at Dachau with the line, ‘Can’t take the heat? Then get out of the kitchen.’ ” (Muslims would buy up all of those cards)
And you might remember when CAIR got its panties in wad over this card in 2013: “We missed the humor,” said CAIR-Chicago after spotting this troubling greeting card (pictured below) in a local store.
HuffPost The card is produced by NobleWorks Inc. with credit for its design given to “Ron Kanfi” according to the company’s website, http://www.nobleworkcards.com. The motto of the company printed under their logo on the back of the card is “modern cards for modern people.”
Notice that nothing identifies this doll as a terrorist in the minds of the card designers other than that she wears a Hijab. Moreover, she – like many Muslim girl who choose to wear the Hijab – is a smiling, non-threatening normal-looking female wearing a pink Hijab and a flower-patterned dress. The unmistakable message behind the “humor” is that even the most peaceful looking Muslims are synonymous and exchangeable with terrorists.
Ahmed Rehab, CAIR-Chicago executive director, called the card “moronic” according to CBS Chicago and says he’s heard from plenty of people decrying the card as offensive and feeding into negative stereotypes about Muslims.
CAIR was unable to do anything about Jeff Dunham’s ‘Ahmed the Dead Terrorist.’ I wonder if they know that Ahmed has a gay son?
