OSLO, Norway, April 19 (UPI) -- A book believed to have been written by an Islamic cleric and circulating among Norway's Muslim community refers to Norwegians as the sons of Satan.

The book was published by a group called the All Pakistan Muslim Society, the Aftenposten newspaper reported Tuesday.

A copy of the book, written in the Pakistani language of Urdu, is in the hands of Oslo police.

The unknown author also attacks Norwegian ethics and morality, saying Norwegians don't have legitimate children.

Besides calling Norwegians the "sons of Satan," the author calls Norwegians "barbarians" and "poisonous snakes" who have poisoned humanity.

"These white men have set off a devilish spiral in the whole world ... to plague people," the book says.

Some Muslim politicians in the country condemned the book, the newspaper said.

"I can't accept that this author pretends he's speaking on behalf of all Muslims or Pakistanis," Kamil Azhar of the Labor Party told a local newspaper.
