A major Muslim advocacy group is handing out packets of pills at the Democratic National Convention that promise to relieve "blind intolerance, unthinking bigotry, irrational fear of Muslims and U.S. presidential election-year scapegoating."
Directions for the so-called "Islamophobin"
pills — which were also distributed at last week's Republican National Convention by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — read: "Take two and call a Muslim in the morning."
They also warn: "Those who already believe in religious diversity, tolerance and mutual understanding should not use this product. Stop taking this product if you begin to develop warm feelings toward Muslims, Immigrants or refugees."
The tablets, actually sugar-free gum, are also being sold on Amazon
and advertised on YouTube
to call attention to anti-Islamic rhetoric in the United States, according to CAIR.
Reviews by Amazon customers humorously praise the faux medicine.
Writes one: "Islamophobin is the best! Works immediately and effectively! Had an emergency the other day, took out my Islamophobin and handed it to the individual and it instantly alleviated the pandemic of Islamophobia.''
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told London's Independent newspaper
the campaign has been a "great success."
