Nazis Urge Moslems to Purge the Koran of “jewish Influences”

Download PDF for this date

After having devised a “German Christianity,” divorced from its Jewish roots, the Nazis are now suggesting a similar reform of the Islamic religion.

In an Arabic broadcast from Germany today it was alleged that “various interpretations of the Koran are to be attributed to the Jews who became Moslems to falsify the teachings of the Koran as they falsified those of the New Testament.” The broadcast appealed to Mohammedan theologians to “rectify these misconceptions.”
