Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Mohamed Omar, born 1976, Swedish is a critic, essayist and poet of Swedish-Iranian origin. Omar is the author of three collections of poetry. He was also the editor of the Muslim journal Minaret from 2006 to 2008.
In an article in the newspaper Folket i Bild/Kulturfront, on 17 July 2012, he withdrew from his Islamist standpoint and retracted his antisemite statements, saying "I ask for forgiveness for having promoted antisemite ideas".
