As World Reels From Islamic Terror Attacks – CAIR Hands Out Chewing Gum at RNC to Treat ‘Islamophobia’
As the world reels from shocking Islamist terror attacks in the U.S, France, Turkey, Iraq, Belgium, Malaysia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and sex assaults by Muslim ‘rapefugees’ just about everywhere in recent months, the Hamas/ Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is handing out chewing gum at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio that mockingly purports to treat ‘chronic Islamophobia’.
The text on the front of the packaging reads:
Multi-symptom relief for chronic Islamophobia
Maximum Strength Formula Treats
Irrational Fear of Muslims
U.S. Presidential Election Year Scapegoating
Take Two and Call a Muslim in the Morning
WARNING: May result in peaceful coexistence”
CAIR held a press conference in Cleveland Monday morning targeting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the Republican party:
A Muslim civil rights organization kicked off the first day of the Republican National Convention in downtown Cleveland with a news conference Monday morning, criticizing GOP officials and presumptive nominee Donald Trump for what it says are their anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim stances.
“We’re trying to raise awareness about the rising tide of Islamophobia in America, and unfortunately Islamophobia has been flourishing within the GOP platform,” Nihad Awad, national executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a nonprofit group, told NBC News.”
As a prescription, Awad offered Islamophobin, a concept borrowed from Muslims in Sweden who created a similar product. CAIR sells a package of 12 sugar-free pieces for $1.99 on amazon.com.
The package says: “Take two and call a Muslim in the morning.”
But it comes with a warning.
“Those who already believe in religious diversity, tolerance and mutual understanding should not use this product,” the package says.
“Stop taking this product if you begin to develop warm feelings toward Muslims, immigrants or refugees.”
Photos of the gum were posted to Twitter by reporters.
