De gemeenteraad van Oldham liet de raadsvergadering vorige maand voorafgaan door een gebed van een imam. Uitleg staat bij The Muslim Issue:
Dhimmis…. Look at them. They are so ignorant and bend their heads along in prayers that call for their own demise in the most brutal manner imaginable.
The imam is parsing the quote taken from verse 5:32 of the “Holy Koran.” But he is ripping it out of context and perverting its meaning. The full passage in the Koran applies to the “Children of Israel,” not to Muslims. And it’s followed in the Koran by 5:33, which calls for “execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land” for those who “wage war against Allah and his messenger, or spread mischief in the land.”At minute 1:56, the imam cites the daily prayer that curses Jews (those who have angered Allah) and Christians (those who have gone astray).
