The Roots of Islamic Anti-Semitism

Robert Spencer: The Roots of Islamic Anti-Semitism

February 27, 2017
By: Robert Spencer

"Anti-Semitism in Europe is at levels not seen since the heyday of Nazi Germany, and is growing more savage by the moment. Last week, i24News reported that "two French Jewish brothers were briefly abducted and abused by a group of men in a Paris suburb in an incident that ended with the brothers being beaten and attacked with a wood saw." This is the new Europe, the same as the old Europe, because of Muslim immigration: the attackers were "a group of men described as having a Middle Eastern appearance."

A group of men having a Middle Eastern appearance would have every reason, by their own lights, to abduct, beat, and attempt to mutilate two random Jews. The Qur'an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the wellbeing of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); as fabricating things and falsely ascribing them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); claiming that Allah's power is limited (5:64); loving to listen to lies (5:41); disobeying Allah and never observing his commands (5:13); disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah's beloved people (5:18); devouring people's wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more.

The classic Qur'anic commentators not do not mitigate the Qur'an's words against Jews, but only add fuel to the fire. Ibn Kathir explained Qur'an 2:61 ("They were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of Allah") this way: "This Ayah [verse] indicates that the Children of Israel were plagued with humiliation, and that this will continue, meaning that it will never cease. They will continue to suffer humiliation at the hands of all who interact with them, along with the disgrace that they feel inwardly." Another Middle Ages commentator of lingering influence, Abdallah ibn Umar al-Baidawi, explains the same verse this way: "The Jews are mostly humiliated and wretched either of their own accord, or out of coercion of the fear of having their jizya [punitive tax] doubled."

Ibn Kathir notes Islamic traditions that predict that at the end of the world, "the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah), and the Muslims, along with 'Isa [Jesus], son of Mary, will kill the Jews." The idea in Islam that the end times will be marked by Muslims killing Jews comes from the prophet Muhammad himself, who said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'" This is, not unexpectedly, a favorite motif among contemporary jihadists.

Not just contemporary jihadists, but modern-day mainstream Islamic authorities take these passages seriously. The former Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, who was the most respected cleric in the world among Sunni Muslims, called Jews "the enemies of Allah, descendants of apes and pigs." The late Saudi sheikh Abd al-Rahman al-Sudayyis, imam of the principal mosque in the holiest city in Islam, Mecca, said in a sermon that Jews are "the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs."

Another Saudi sheikh, Ba'd bin Abdallah al-Ajameh al-Ghamidi, made the connection explicit: "The current behavior of the brothers of apes and pigs, their treachery, violation of agreements, and defiling of holy places ... is connected with the deeds of their forefathers during the early period of Islam–which proves the great similarity between all the Jews living today and the Jews who lived at the dawn of Islam."

All this shows that leading Muslim authorities approach the Qur'an not as a document rooted in history, but as a blueprint for understanding the world today. Indeed, it is the primary blueprint for such understanding, and yet the one most persistently ignored by authorities. That's why those authorities keep misunderstanding the rising problem of Islamic anti-Semitism, and are woefully ill-equipped to deal with it.

The contradictions start at the very beginning and go on from there, picking up mass and speed like a snowball turning into an avalanche!

Dare to compare the basic, simple geneologies of Jesus, in the Books of Matthew and Luke (just for starters)!

Matthew 1:1-17:

king David

So that's 39 generations (called '28 generations') in Matthew.


Now let's look at Luke 3:23-34: No sign or Aram, Salmon is called "Sala," after David, there's no sign of Solomon, and in stead, we get:

Joseph Judah
Eliezer, Joshua, Er,
Elmadam, Cosam, Neri, 
Shealthiel (Salathiel?)
Maath, Naggui, Esli,
Nahum, Amos, Mattathias,
Joseph, Jannai,
Melchi, Levi, Mathat, Heli
...and Joseph.



To continue, Isaiah contradicts the bit in Genesis about how God loves the smell of Abel's burnt offerings, and claims, instead, that God actually hates the smells, which make him want to vomit, because sacrificing animals in stead of owning up to one's own mistakes was really ever only a primitive form of appeasing dead ancestral ghosts with ghost -meals!

Next up: NORTH AMERICA (much less the infinite potential for extraterrestrial life) is not mentioned in either Bible!

...simply because the Bible (full of alleged "prophets" and flying angels who could, one must presume, see that the earth, which the Bible describes as flat, was actually a sphere, with HEY there - other continents LOL) was actually written by primitive desert-dwelling cave-Jews, who didn't know any such things existed, and so neglected to mention them amidst all their other primitive speculations opinions and bad guesses about metaphysics, human psychology, and reality, which they turned into lies by presenting to the world AS FACTS, either!

Why whites are NOT the most racist people on earth

From here:


In light of recent events, let’s have an honest conversation about racism in the western world--something that I think the mainstream media and modern academia has failed to provide. 
Let’s begin by pointing out something that should be obvious but is difficult for the liberal media and academics to swallow. The most racist and bigoted people on earth are not whites. In fact, the most racist and bigoted countries on earth are in the Middle East and South-East Asia.
A metadata analysis of worldwide surveys asked people simple questions like, “Would you be okay living next to someone of a different race and culture?” According to the surveys, the most racist and bigoted country on earth isn’t America or England or Germany. It was India. More so, not a single western european country made the top twenty-five list of most racist and bigoted countries. The only white majority country to make the list was Russia, at #20.
The top ten most racist and bigoted countries, in descending order, are the following: India, Lebanon, Bahrain, Libya, Egypt, Philippines, Kuwait, Palestine, South Africa, and South Korea. You can see the survey by clicking here.
The left needs to understand when they make the argument that white people are somehow more racist than other people, they’re wrong.
White people are the most tolerant and accepting.
That is confirmed again in a picture provided by the Washington Post. It gives a great visual representation of how tolerant and accepting the Western World is compared to the rest of the planet.
It shows the English speaking world, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Nordic countries and Iberian peninsula are the least racist and bigoted people, yet, if you turn on the television, if you crack open a college sociology textbook, they’ll tell you the exact opposite.
They’ll brainwash you into thinking that whites are racist to demonize and race-bait when facts point the other way.
In 1990, Congress passed the Hate Crime Statistics Act, which required the attorney general to collect data “about crimes which manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.” Ever since the act, the FBI and Criminal Justice Departments have had reliable records on the number of hate crimes and who the offenders are. Reports like THIS show, blacks, on average, disproportionately commit hate crimes.
The liberal media and academia tell us whites are racist--- only whites can commit hate crimes. But when you look at the data, it’s clear that only one group of people have a tendency to commit hate crimes. One group of people are disproportionately, factually, more racist and bigoted in America. Blacks.
I’m not doing this to defend white people. I’m doing this to defend objective reality.
I’m looking at stats, crunching the numbers, and forming an opinion based on the evidence which is clear: Whites and white countries are the least racist and bigoted.
Whites commit less hate crimes, on average. Whites are far more tolerant and accepting than other races, besides maybe latin americans.
Therefore, the liberal media and academia should report the facts, honestly, instead of lying to the world by saying whites are somehow more racist than others. They’re not. They are in fact, less racist.
What breeds hatred, genuine hatred, for a people is misconception. A misunderstanding of reality. If you’re black, and all you get is the information from the mainstream media and academia, you’re most likely going to start hating white people.
Don’t be part of the problem. Arm yourself with knowledge, empirical truth, and expose the truth to people who want to push their agenda of needless hatred and bigotry against whites.
