(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/29/05) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today announced that National Review magazine has apparently removed advertisements for two virulently anti-Muslim books attacking the Prophet Muhammad from its online store. The removal of the promotional materials for “The Life and Religion of Mohammed” and “The Sword of the Prophet” came after hundreds of concerned Muslims contacted the magazine and Boeing Co., one of the magazine’s advertisers, to express their concerns about the slamophobic views in both books. The previous links to each book, which were working as late as this afternoon, state “Record not found for product.”
Yesterday, CAIR issued an action alert calling on Muslims and other people of conscience to urge that Boeing withdraw advertising support from National Review because of its promotion of anti-Muslim hate. Boeing representatives say they were “inundated” with faxes, e-mails and calls.
