Contact Boeing about Attack on Holy Prophet

Washington, DC: CAIR is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to contact aerospace giant Boeing Co. about its advertisements in a magazine that is actively promoting virulently anti-Muslim books that attack Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Despite messages of outrage from hundreds of concerned Muslims, National Review magazine continues to promote “The Life and Religion of Mohammed” on its Internet store. The magazine claims the book exposes “the ugly truth about the founder of the world’s most violent religion.”
According to the promotional materials, the book is a “guide into the dark mind of [the Prophet] Mohammed.” The online review states: “[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…Mohammed again and again justified his rapine and licentiousness with new ‘divine revelations.’”
Another book being promoted by National Review, “The Sword of the Prophet,” is described as: “What Muslims, multiculturalists, and the media hope you never find out about Islam.” The magazine’s review claims that the book “gives us the unvarnished, ‘politically incorrect’ truth about Islam -- including the shocking facts about its founder, Mohammed; its rise through bloody conquest; its sanctioning of theft, deceit, lust and murder.”
CONTACT BOEING to request that it reconsider advertising in a magazine that actively promotes anti-Muslim hate and defames the Prophet Muhammad.
