National Review Silent on Anti-Muslim Hate

UPDATE: The National Review magazine continues to promote a virulently Islamophobic book attacking the Prophet Muhammad on their Internet store. Last week, CAIR called on the prominent national neoconservative magazine to clarify its policy on anti-Muslim hate following revelations that the publication distributed an Internet
advertisement for the book that, according to the magazine, is a “guide into the dark mind of [the Prophet] Mohammed” and the “world’s most violent religion.”

The National Review’s online promotional materials state: “[The author] explains why Mohammed couldn’t possibly be a true prophet, and reveals the
true sources of his ‘revelations.'” It quotes the author as claiming: “Mohammed posed as the apostle of God&while his life is marked by innumerable marriages; and great licentiousness, deeds of rapine, warfare,
conquests, unmerciful butcheries, all the time invoking God’s holy name to sanction his evil deeds.”

According to the National Review, the book shows how “Mohammed again and again justified his rapine and licentiousness with new ‘divine revelations.'” CAIR said the book “is the literary equivalent of ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.'” (NOTE: In 2002, CAIR called on an
Arab-American publication to apologize for publishing excerpts from “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a 19th century anti-Semitic forgery used to justify the persecution of Jews.)

ACTION REQUESTED: (As always, be POLITE. National Review WILL use any hostile comments to further defame Islam and Muslims.) Contact National Review to respectfully that they reconsider promoting a book that attacks the faith of one-fifth of the world’s population and harms America’s image in the Muslim world.
