CAIR Launches Satirical Ad To Combat Islamophobia

The Council on American Islamic Relations yesterday announced the launch of a satirical social-media public relations campaign to combat Islamophobia.  CAIR is distributing ISLAMOPHOBIN®, a mock-medicine (actually sugar-free gum) designed to "cure" Islamophobia. The colorful package says that the product cures such things as "blind intolerance."  Among the package label warnings is this:
Those who already believe in religious diversity, tolerance and mutual understanding should not use this product. For those who hold bigoted stereotypes of Muslims and subscribe to Islamophobic conspiracy theories, use of this product may result in feelings of remorse and/or guilt.
