Bungling Muslims promote Koran with signs saying ‘LIES’ – unaware of English translation

ONE of Switzerland’s top police chiefs wants to ban a promotion campaign by an Islamic group to distribute the Koran.

News about the promotional campaign went viral because they promoted it with the word ‘Lies’ which means ‘Read This’ in German – but something else in English.

The radical Muslims were however apparently unaware that the word ‘lies’, which comes from the verb ‘lesen’ meaning to read, has an entirely different meaning in English.
