A new coloring book for kids is out and it’s sort-of an eye-opener. It’s a 9/11 coloring book called We Shall Never Forget 9-11 – The Kids Book of Freedom.
It’s published by Really Big Coloring Books. The owner Wayne Bell recently went on YouTube to talk about it.
On the website:
To the American people and all others who may read this child’s coloring book, We Shall Never Forget is designed to be a tool that parents can use to help teach children about the facts surrounding 9/11. This book also describes basic freedoms in America. We suggest parental guidance. As the 9/11 events are shown countless times on national media, this book will help children understand the meaning of these events. The book was created with honesty, integrity, reverence, respect and does not shy away from the truth.In this book you will see what happens to a terrorist who orders others to bomb our peace loving wonderful nation.
Here is a sample page (click for larger):
The Guardian reports that Muslims are not happy about how Islam is portrayed in the book.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has condemned the book as “disgusting”, saying that it characterises all Muslims as linked to extremism, terrorism and radicalism, which could lead children reading the book to believe that all Muslims are responsible for 9/11, and that followers of the Islamic faith are their enemies.
Wayne Bell disagrees, saying that the book is not about Islam but the “19 terrorist hijackers that came over here under the leadership of a devil worshipper, Osama bin Laden, to murder our people.”
The same publisher also puts out a Tea Party Coloring Book For Kids.
