On the viral meme that distorts Quran verses (in relation to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN))
The interpretations of nine verses from the Quran that the meme includes were made by one of the founders of the site, who describes himself as a freelance writer, not a religious scholar. In total, he had offered 36 reinterpretations of verses from the Quran. Several of them have been repeated in online publications since then, illustrating how misinformation persists for years and spreads online.
Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was persecuted, at least in part, for his religious message and had to flee his home in Mecca for the nearby town of Medina. There, he and his followers remained in conflict with the Meccans, and those struggles are referenced in the Quran.

In 1963, the Zip Code began.
Pretty late, I must confess. We only had it that late because we were no united country in the time when this would have been introduced for us. On the other hand, I don't know when these codes were introduced in Germany.
