Who but those evil Jews could crucify someone who never died on the cross?
Ask the man who publishes textbooks he claims are used in at least half the Muslim private schools in New York City, as well as throughout the United States. From What Islam Is All About, a textbook for seventh graders by Yahiya Emerick (International Books & Tapes Supply, 1997):
"After telling the governor lies about Jesus and making him think that Prophet Jesus was starting a rebellion against Rome, the Jews were finally able to get an order for his execution. The Koran states that the Jews did not kill Jesus nor did they crucify him. Allah states, however, that the Jews thought they did it."
So the Jews didn't do it, but they're guilty anyway.
Christians, by the way, do not escape Emerick's religious polemics for gradeschoolers. Elsewhere the book states: "The Christians also worship statues."
