Amazon Removes Floor Mats That Offended Muslims After CAIR Complained

Amazon has issued an apology to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a designated Islamic terrorist organization, after the self described “Muslim civil rights” group complained on Thursday to the online retailer about the sale of bathroom and outdoor floor mats that had verses from the Koran written in calligraphy on them.

Within a few days, Amazon caved to CAIR’s requests and removed the mats from their website.

In a statement, CAIR said that they received “complaints about the items, which are offensive to Muslims because the Quranic verses would be stepped on or otherwise disrespected by customers.”

It is worth noting that the products CAIR claimed were offensive were being sold by resellers who are independent agents of Amazon. In other words, CAIR is working to drive independent retailers who sell products Muslims may find offensive out of business, in America.
