Chicago Tribune: Critics say 9/11 coloring book crosses the line

Amina Sharif, communications director for the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the book depicts the events of 9/11 and the aftermath in a “slanted” manner, painting Muslims in broad strokes and failing to distinguish extremist radicals from the majority of Muslims.

“It’s hateful, inflammatory and completely inappropriate for children or anyone for that matter,” Sharif said.
