Libya: U.S. falsifying Holy Koran

March 15, 2005 at 10:04 AM

TRIPOLI, Libya, March 15 (UPI) -- Libya's Deputy Speaker Ahmed Ibrahim accused the United States Tuesday of distributing forged copies of the Koran to tarnish the image of Islam.

During a lecture to the Libyan Students' Union in Tripoli, Ibrahim said the U.S. administration under orders from President Bush "is forging the Koran and distributing the false copies among Americans in order to tarnish the image of Muslims and Islam."

He also accused the United Nations of being the "center of injustice" and the cause of the oppression of people around the world.

"The Zionists have ruined America's dream in establishing a peaceful and stable world ... If the Americans do not get rid of Zionist influence they will be endangering their interests and future," Ibrahim added.
