CLAYTON, MO (KMOX) – Taking heat from Muslim groups upset with a coloring book about the 9/11 Attacks, a publisher says he’s been in contact with local police and the FBI.

Wayne Bell, the Publisher of Really Big Coloring Books, Inc., says there’s been a negative backlash against the book “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom.”

“These are people from Al-Jazeera that have called in here numerous times, people from Iranian TV, people from Palestinian Hamas TV,” Bell said, “A lot of people from the Islamic community have called in here and said increasingly negative things prior to the book being made and then after we made the book too, about the book itself.”

The book features images of Osama Bin Laden and Islamic terrorists. It also shows American citizens upset by the attacks, including a woman with a cross around her neck. But it shows no Muslim Americans mourning the attacks.

The Council on American Islamic Relations has criticized the book as one-sided, only portraying Muslims as either “extremists” or “terrorists. ”

Bell was asked to explain the absence of patriotic Muslim Americans in the book who were also opposed to the attacks. Publisher Calls FBI Over Muslim Backlash From 9/11 Coloring Book

“Well, I don’t know, I mean this is what our research showed us,” Bell said, “Every time we mention one of the hijackers we call them what they are. And that’s what parents wanted. Radical, Islamic, Muslim Extremists. And every time we mention one of the hijackers like the three guys that drove the plane into the Pentagon, there’s nothing else you can call them. I mean, what do think, they’re having a bad hair day?”

The book has been selling briskly, so fast that Bell said he had no extra copies for reporters to take with them today. Bell declined to disclose how many copies have sold, except to say “a lot.”

When asked about whether he has had any threats because of the book, Bell stopped short of saying he had.

“That’s our C.O.O., ” Bell said, pointing to a co-worker, “He’s talked to the Clayton police department, a sergeant at the Clayton police department and the FBI, regarding your question. That’s the answer to your question. And so, it’s really good to be aware of your surroundings. We’ll put it that way.

So in other words, it's an accurate representation.

BTW folks, learn the truth about Islam, the stuff they don't want you to know!

But the politicians (both sides) keep telling us how peaceful islam is and that muslims in American are good citizens and want to get along with everybody. BS

Wish there was a way to kick every single muslim out of America.

Because they didn't. They danced and partied in the streets. Why lie to the kids?

All the more reason for them to include a page of that fat "Palestinian" bich swirling around and trilling.

I bet 0 bummer and the wookie were even cheering the events of 9/11. Maybe not outwardly, but that is what those two want - knock down America a notch or two.

Everyone knows that Islam is responsible for the 911 attacks.

CAIR is just proving that they didn’t mourn either! Instead of blaming the 19 scumbags, they find a way to blame ... a coloring book maker! If I were a peaceful Saudi or Muslim living in the U.S. I would be more pissed at the terrorists than anyone. They stained their own people for life.

When the so-called mainstream muzzies start doing something about the radical muzzies, then I might pay attention to their “bad American” chants.

Until then, if you don’t like America then go back to where you came from.

I’d put my money of donkeys descending from space on sombreros the size of the Astro Dome, chewing tobacco and spitting like a llama in hurricane before I would expect a change from the koranimals in our midst.

I would ask CAIR for the names of real Muslims who came out to unequivocally condemn the attacks.

By that I mean no nonsense like:

"Obviously the attacks are a tragedy, but the American policy of intervention brings these things out in the poor Islamic people of the world."

According to the UK Guardian (yesterday):
"... it has sold out of its first print run of 10,000 copies."
That UK rag also posts an image from page 19 of this coloring book . . .which is probably the image (and it's placement in the coloring book) which most irritates these savages threatening the publisher. It depicts Osama cowering behind a hefty bagged female as he is taken out by our fabulous American Navy Seal Team 6 member...ON PAGE 19 (symbolic of the 19 hijackers, perhaps?). Note the curious term used by Dawud in the UK Guardian interview. . . "given the fact that this is a very emotional and sensitive topic..." Their revered jihad warrior depicted as the coward 'it' was in a COLORING BOOK just gnaws at their pious Islamic sensitivities! Good. The truth hurts. And good on the Missouri-based publisher, Really Big Coloring Books, for countering the massive disgusting PR effort to minimize the historical significance of 9/11. Lan Astaslem.

There was a group of Muslims in America that stood up and condemned the 9/11 attacks. I never heard much more about them after a small flurry of news about them.

That is a problem.

The democrats can't run on their record. The last 3 years have been a national disaster. All they have is the race card. It got Oboma elected the first time, and all they can do is try it again and "hope" it works.

There was at least one Muslim who would have mourned the attacks. But he was an Afghan and they murdered him two days earlier. He's featured on my Freeper page.

This man had Osama Bin Laden in our crosshairs before Madeline Albright intervened to save OBL's life. Never forget.

The jihadists will strike the USA again. If they are allowed to. They want us to all go back to Sep 10 of 2001 and pretend it is not coming yet you know their buddies are probing for an opportunity.

Why lie to the kids? Because political correctness is a bundle of rosey lies to make evil lovable and slanders against good to make good into a lie of dreaded evil.

This is how the Muslims who attacked us became the “religion of peace” and Americans became domestic terrorists, targets for ritual sexual molestation at the airports.

This is going to be the first coloring book to top the New York Times Best Sellers List.

Anyone mention those coloring books they sell in Gaza that show Jews baking cookies with the blood of Arab children?

Don’t forget all the mosques throughout the ME blaring out the news over the PA systems informing the koranimals of their successful attack either.

If I recall correctly, it was this admin that said “we could absorb another attack”.

That was a “green light” to any terrorist group listening.
