Swedish Imam to Muslims: "Do Not Befriend the Unbelievers" - One Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Sweden: July 2015

.... On July 1, the Swedish daily Gefle Dagblad revealed that an imam from the northern city of Gävle was the man behind the now-closed website, www.muslim.se, which stated, among other things, that homosexuality is punishable by death. The imam, Abo Raab, is a prominent figure in the Swedish Imam Association, which has received over 400,000 kronor (more than $47,000) from the government to "combat Islamophobia and racism in society."

When its officials applied for the money, the association claimed to want to create a professional website containing "factual and pertinent information about Islam" and "to build bridges between Muslims and non-Muslims." But no bridges were built. The website, which was shut down in January for unknown reasons, listed the following as forbidden for Swedish Muslims:

Being homosexual, punishable by death.
Befriending non-believers and liking them.
Joining the communities of the non-believers, joining their political parties, increasing their numbers, adopting their nationalities (except when absolutely necessary), joining their armies or helping them develop weapons.
Imitating their clothing, appearance, speech etc., because this indicates a love for the person or people imitated. [Gatestone Institute] Read more
