Oldham Council Is Being Lied To

In this video, the Mayor of Oldham invites an imam to say Islamic prayers in the Council chamber:


Oldham Council is being lied to. The imam solemnly expresses the OPPOSITE of what the Koran actually says. At 1:19 in the video he says:

"The Koran says whoever kills a body unlawfully or for creating disorder in the land it is as if he has killed the entire of mankind."

What Koran 5:32 says - in a passage addressed to the Jews, NOT to the Muslims - is:

"We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men;"

Note the "UNLESS IT BE... for mischief in the land". This was thoughtfully omitted by the imam.

"Mischief in the land" is an everlastingly extendable category that includes drawing pictures of Mohammed, naming a teddy bear Mohammed, criticising an Ayatollah, and so on and so on.

The very next verse, 5:33 sets out the repercussions:

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned;"

In short, submit, or else.
