Islamic Jew-hatred: It’s in the Qur’an

Robert Spencer on JihadWatch writes:

“Ace lawyer David Yerushalmi’s parting words below are worth setting in stone: “A word of advice to government bureaucrats doing the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding: we will sue you and you will lose. Act accordingly.”

The occasion was the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations trying to stop the following Ad (appearing on buses):

“ADFI, why are you so anti-Islam, why do you hate us so?”

We don’t hate you, we hate what you  believe and promote

“We don’t know what you’re on about, you’re just, if we’ve said it thousand times, we’ve said it gazillions of  times, you’re a bunch of Islamophobes.”

On 7 March 2015, the local newspaper (Weekend Post) of my home town published my letter. It was a response to a Muslim cleric who lambasts a Christian Pastor for reminding (informing?) the cleric that Jesus was a Jew, and the Jews were the ones who brought the INJIL (Gospel) to the world. Here is my letter:

Sheikh Shamiel Panday (28 February) excoriates Rev Wilmot (21 February) for his support of “Zionists” (Panday). Rev Wilmot didn’t mention the word “Zionist”, he said “Jew.” My brief here is not Zionism but to show that in Islam the hatred of Zionism and the Jews are two sides of the same coin. The Imam of the Al-Haram mosque in Mecca, Sheikh Abd Al-Rahman Al-Sudayis, said in one of his sermons:

“Read history and you will understand that the Jews of yesterday are the evil forefathers of the even more evil Jews of today: infidels, falsifiers of words, calf worshippers, prophet murderers, deniers of prophecies … the scum of the human race, accursed by Allah, who turned them into apes and pigs … These are the Jews – an ongoing continuum of deceit, obstinacy, licentiousness, evil, and corruption …”

The intense Islamic hatred of the Jew did not originate with the Declaration of the State of Israel in 1948, but with “Allah.” In three places in the uncreated, eternal Qur’an, Allah calls Jews monkeys and/or pigs. For example: Surah 2:65 “And you know well the story of those among you who broke Sabbath. We said to them: “Be apes—despised and hated by all” (Trans. Maududi).”

Ibn Ishaq, an early and reliable biographer of Muhammad, writes that Muhammad called the Medinan Jewish clan, Qurayzah, “brothers of monkeys.” Did Muhammad mean this figuratively? The Iranian Medieval commentator Razi said the appearances of the Jews were changed, but they kept their human minds. Maududi says that in the original Arabic: “The words of the Qur’an … indicate that it was… a physical metamorphosis.” Whether literal or figurative, this does not affect the fact that Muhammad and company hated Jews. Jews thought he was a very confused Gentile; spinning for him bizarre yarns about Abraham and Solomon, which he (Allah?) incorporated into his Qur’an.

The Qur’an says: “Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Surah 9:29).

In sum, the Islamic hatred of the Jew didn’t originate with Zionism but with Allah/Muhammad. To be faithful to the Qur’an, a Muslim must believe and imitate – if not “ape” – every word of it; and, therefore, either kill or subjugate Jews and make them feel subdued – very subdued.

  1. Never mind what the Qur’an says. I refuse to believe that all Muslims are antisemitic. Just as I refuse to believe that all white South Africans brought up during the apartheid era are racists or that all war-time Germans were Nazis. I will not succumb to generalization. Generalization is another word for prejudice. The Muslims of today are the Jews of yesterday.

    There are drivers who obey the rules of the road, and there are those that don’t. Similarly there are Muslims who believe and do what the Qur’an says – you just read specifically what it says; no generalizations there. And there are those that don’t believe and/or don’t do what it says.

    • Granted. But I am wary of the general anti Muslim feeling and I am aware of Muslims being unjustly targeted, certainly in Canada.

      • A Muslim is someone who claims or thinks he follows the Qur’an. The majority – who don’t read Arabic, which Muslim clerics say is essential to understand the Qur’an- don’t know much about the contents of it. Also, there are many that know and don’t like what it says , for example, violence including beating your wife if you think she MIGHT think of being cheeky.

        Your ignorant anti-Muslim types in Canada are found everywhere , as are many other kinds of louts.

        If Islam was made voluntary tomorrow, it would collapse quickly. The penalty I Sharia law for leaving Islam is death.
