Publisher Calls FBI Over Muslim Backlash From 9/11 Coloring Book

Kevin Killeen

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.

“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.

    The 911 terrorists were radical, satanic filth, and the peaceful members of their own religion an culture are among their saddest victims. But it’s the terrorists’ fault it all happened, not some coloring book publisher’s. I hope he sells truckloads of them.

    • smashicus

      Is that why Muslims in places like Egypt and Palestine were dancing in the streets celebrating the 911 atttacks right after it happened? These terrorists are basically the “Special Forces” of Islam carrying out missions which the mainstream Islamists can deny involvement in.

        The cbc tried to quash a story about taxi drivers cheering at Toronto’s largest (International) airpport, upon hearing the newsof 9-11. muzzies are sick in the head.

      • njersey

        Muslims in places like Paterson, NJ were also dancing in the streets after 9/11. That’st right – I saw it with my own eyes.

    • Nancy O'Connell

      I am glad to see that this book publisher is calling it the EXACT way it happened
      I am sick and tired of worrying about offending the Islamist.

    • gsw

      not satanic – islamic – different gods. That’s like calling a christian “someone who worships Thor”.

      • Cain

        Actually Islam finds its roots with Christianity and Judaism, all three religions come from Abraham as their fore bearer. Satan in Islamic texts is referred to as Shaitan. Islam is the youngest of the 3 faiths coming about during the 600’s. It is for all intents and purposes a 3rd translation of the same religion. Just a bit of fun information from a veteran United State Marine who is a Islamic studies minor

      • MaxineH20gotohell

        Well you know they follow the antichrist. That is satanic. Muslim’s are waiting for their “savior” who is the Christian antichrist. The Christian Savior is their antichrist. That tells you something.

      I agree totally. I hope he sells a million or more!

      I would appreciate someone providing me with a link to order a few myself. Thanks

    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the ideologue and eventual religio-political leader of Iran, following the retrograde “Islamic revolution” of 1978-79, said the following in this 1942 statement,

    “Those who study jihad will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. All the countries conquered by Islam or to be conquered in the future will be marked for everlasting salvation. For they shall live under Allah’s law (Sharia). … Islam says: “Kill [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter their armies.” Islam says: “Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors (jihadists)!” There are hundreds of other Koranic psalms and hadiths (sayings of the prophet) urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim. … Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless.”

    Khomeini reiterated these views upon assuming power in 1979,

    “The great prophet of Islam [Mohammed himself] carried in one hand the Koran and in the other a sword; the sword for crushing the traitors and the Koran for guidance. … Islam is a religion of blood for the infidels but a religion of guidance for other people. … We shall export our revolution to the whole world. Until the cry “There is no God but God” resounds over the whole world, there will be struggle.”

    9/11’s nineteen hijackers followed Mohammed’s example. They cited the koran for their inspiration/motivation and they used the sword which for them were jet airliners.

    > The Council on American Islamic Relations

    This is “journalism” ??? How about mentioning the fact that CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood Front implicated in terrorist funding, with some of its former leaders now spending prison time for terrorist related activities?

    But you fail to even mention this, not to mention all of the litigation and fraud that has followed in CAIR’s wake.

    Not a very good and unbiased source of comments for this article, now was it?

    > asked to explain the absence of patriotic Muslim Americans in the book who were also opposed to the attacks.

    Lets see, they were dancing in the streets throughout the Muslim world on 9/11. And whenever a Muslim (e.g. CAIR) is interviewed regarding 9/11, all we have EVER heard is whining and crying about supposed “backlash” that there is no record of. (statistics show that the numbers of hate crimes against Muslims has actually declined radically since 9/11 and is virtually non-existent in comparison to anti-semitic hate crimes etc)

    But, have you heard any actual statements by Muslim organizations sympathizing with non-Muslims on 9/11??? I thought not! Instead, any statements from the Muslim community regarding 9/11 always end up blaming the US. CONSISTENTLY!

    And what have any of the organizations done to counter Islamic extremism and terrorism in their own communities? NOTHING.

    Studies of mosques throughout this country have confirmed the testimony of “moderate” Muslims, that the vast majority of Mosques in the US preach intolerance and hatred towards non-Muslims.

    And a recent poll shows that 20% of Muslims SUPPORT suicide bombings.

    Muslims sympathizing with the hated Kafirs/Infidels when other Muslims attack them? Give us a break here. Why would this author depict such a non-reality?

  • george whyte

    Qur’an:4:78 “Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers strong and high! So what is wrong with these people, that they fail to understand these simple words?”

  • Jay, Manchester, United Kingdom

    I salute Wayne Bell for publishing this colouring book.

    Once again, somebody is lambasted (in this case, the publisher) for simply stating fact. How dare anybody point out the elephant in the room in this day and age, when there are so many people waiting to be ‘offended’.

    If the colouring book depicts factual events (which apparently, it does), then what is the problem of introducing this important part of history to our children through this medium?

    Again, well done Wayne Bell. I sincerely hope that others will follow your example.

  • dirt

    I applaud the publisher for producing the book, I’d love to see the Koran in all it’s medieval barbarity made into a coloring book. Religion of peace, spare me the balony.

  • Chicago Nick

    “Bell was asked to explain the absence of patriotic Muslim Americans in the book who were also opposed to the attacks.”

    Because that would be a mythical lie. That’s why. Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. That’s what the children need to be learning. That Muslims will use Taquiyya to stab anyone in the back anytime that’s a non Muslim and that they prey for the destruction of Israel and the US and the west in general 5 times a day.

    That’s what should be portrayed, not some PC Lie that they all love America and Freedom because they don’t. A LIE. They love ISLAM and nothing else. Especially LIFE. They value death and destruction in the name of Allah.

  • Lauren

    Where can I get this coloring book?

  • James G. Needham

    Why do Muslims protest coloring books but remain silent when hundreds of thousands are slaughtered in the name of their faith?

    • gsw

      because pictures – any pictures not just those of Mo – are considered ‘dirty’ in islam.
      Hadith -Bukhari 5:338, Narrated Ibn Abbas: …”Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.”
      Imagine the absolute horror of a kufir making a book of pictures of islamic heroes; and calling them terrorists!

  • kozanne

    Think I’ll buy 10 or so copies. Oh, yes the link does work. I just gave it to about 150 other people on a forum I belong to.

    The shariah whiner community had best be damn careful about who they threaten in this country. We don’t abide by their laws. And there is no way in hell they will EVER get away with murdering another American citizen again and escape OUR justice.

  • Hank Warren

    Forget the sick 9/11 propaganda coloring book. Don’t waste your hard-earned money, instead read a BANNED 9/11 book like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel and the “World’s Most Hated Author”, E.A. Blayre III.

    Nothing’s new…. you would see plenty of text books in Gaza and the Islamic-fascism countries that taught the children on against (even killing) all the infidels and fight to dominating the islam over the world while HAMAS backed CAIR, other islamic organisations and leftists keep silence… even CAIR invited the radical islamic imams etc. etc. to their special function, and received the funds from the islamic countries that don’t support the religion freedom for non-muslims (or the muslims want to leave islam)…. CAIR kept silence on the honour killings by American-muslims. Double standard!!! This colouring book doesn’t say all the muslims, just the radical islamic terrorists.

    I am thrilled by all the people in this comment section who are speaking up about Islam. We must speak up while we still can. It will get harder the longer we wait.
    Islam used to be one of my favorite religions, but that was because I only had studied it as a religion. Then I started to learn about the social/poltical side of Islam. I was shocked.
    The European Court of Human Rights ruled in 2003 that sharia is incompatible with democracy. Those judges are not Tea Party members. They are ultra-liberal Europeans, for pity’s sake. Please tell others.
    Q: Is Islam a religion of peace?
    A: Islam is a religion of domination and control, and it will use every means, ranging from public relations lies to legal battles to war and terrorism to establish totalitarian Islam over all else.
    Many Muslims, probably most Muslims, are nice. That won’t help you if you end up under a Muslim majority, because sharia law will tell them what they have to do to you. They won’t have a choice, because Islam is not a democratic system. You will be a second-class citizen, if you are lucky.
    Listen to Brigitte Gabriel or Ali Sina. They know.
    If you google political islam and religion of peace you can learn more. Look on YouTube and see what is happening in Sweden. Look up videos about Lars Vilks for some real eye-openers.
    Do you want to know the future? Study the past and present. Study what Islam has done and is doing all around the world. Thanks to the Internet you can do that. The more you learn, the more chilling it is.
    Okay, I’ve said my piece. Now I’m ready to be called Islamophobic or racist. I’m willing to put up with that because I am determined to do my part to try to save our country from a totalitarian system hiding behind the disguise of a religion.

    • G.B.

      Thanks for your info. Very enlightening. Please google “Rick Perry and Islam” for another shocker. As the strongest Repub contender, it looks like we have here a pandering compromising one worlder who will probably be soft on the admission of Sharia law in our country. Lots of info here. See what you think.


      • A.J.

    Muslim liars trying to rewrite history. The terrorists were Muslims! Accept the truth.

  • David Christensen

    Interesting it is that a significant number of Muslims went berserk at an amusement park because they were not able to ride on the roller coaster when they refused to remove headwear as required for safety purposes. This happened on the same day two American service members were killed by their brothers and another 10 or so people died when a Muslim extremist suicide-murderer blew himself up in Iraq. And, we are supposed to abide these fools?

  • bargal

    I don’t doubt that there may be some patriotic Muslims living among we Americans but pray tell, where are they. Why are they not in the streets of every town in every state of this great land and protesting the radicals? Are they too so informed of the horror the radicals bring upon those thatr doen’t agree with their agenda, that they are hiding in fear for their lives and the safety of their loved ones here and abroad? Come out Come out whereever you are

  • Rodger Barker

    Too funny. Obama has a book he can read and color at the same time.
