Offensive greeting card stirs controversy among Muslim leaders

A greeting card sold in stores nationwide is stirring controversy among some members of the Muslim community.

The card shows a picture of a doll in traditional Muslim dress, but the writing uses incendiary innuendos that suggest terrorism.

Ahmed Rehab with the Council on American-Islamic Relations said the doll links Muslims and terrorism.

"There's nothing about that doll other than she's a Muslim that caused the makers of the card to think it was funny to put blurbs on the box  saying 'Let me blow you up,' 'Let me love you to death," Rehab said.

The card was made in New Jersey, but the card is available to stores across the nation.

A small campaign has since sprouted to get the card pulled from store shelves.
