Amazon.com complied last week with a request by the Council on American-Islamic Relations to stop selling doormats featuring Quranic verses, but now the retail giant is receiving complaints about other products, such as toilet-seat covers with Islamic imagery.
The executive director of CAIR’s Washington, D.C., branch, Masih Fouladi, said Amazon’s quick response regarding the doormats “sends a message to manufacturers of such inappropriate and offensive items that they will not profit from Islamophobia or any other form of bigotry.”
But now the Independent newspaper of London reports a variety of what it calls “derogatory” products are still available on the site, including toilet-seat covers.
Jihad Watch’s Christine Douglass-Williams commented: “Rather than calling upon Muslims to assimilate and adopt Western norms, Western society is being forced to assimilate and adapt to Islamic sensibilities.”
“To not do so renders one ‘Islamophobic,’ ‘bigoted’ and ‘anti-Muslim,'” she wrote.
Douglass-Williams noted there are “also Christian toilet sets at Amazon, as well as doormats featuring Bible verses, without accusations of bigotry from Christians and Jews.”
Global developments suggest the complaints might not end unless virtually “anti-Muslim” products are eliminated.
WND has reported on the movement to create a worldwide ban on any criticism of Islam.
In Uganda, Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer recently noted, Muslims are regarding “any public statement of the Christian faith” as an insult to Islam.
