On the premise that nothing makes a better gift than a good book, a Muslim civil liberties group is launching a campaign to hand out 100,000 free copies of an expensive Arabic-English copy of the Qur'an to elected officials and influential policy makers.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is planning to announce their campaign at a press conference Tuesday. The group's executive director said the project was inspired after hearing people in his office heard Obama's speech to the Muslim world last month, in which Obama talked about seeking "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world."

Testimonials

An Elected State Official -

"Thank you very much for the copy of The Message of the Quran. It is a beautiful book that will help me and my staff garner a greater understanding of Islam. The Council on American Islamic Relations has come up with an excellent idea to broaden understanding and acceptance. Too many people fear Islam, equating it with terrorism. Your gift provides the opportunity to read first hand what the religion represents...When reading it, I will remember your generosity and the spirit of understanding in which it was offered."
