AKSARAHIJAU– There is a long and complicated history to the Muslim hatred of Jews. Some people seek to trace the issue back to Abraham’s two sons, Isaac and Ishmael, or Isaac’s two sons, Jacob and Esau. Whatever enmity existed between the two offspring, there was not a command of God to kill the Jews. The immense hatred of the Jews began in the time of Mohammed, by Mohammed, and it is alleged that Allah gave the command for it. The Qur’an, the hadiths, and the events in Mohammed’s life will explain the hatred that began with Mohammed and continued in his followers to this day.
1. The Qur’anic data
Q. 5:60 Say (O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path.”
This quote is in contradiction to the verses quoted below from the Bible about the Jews as God’s chosen people. Did not Allah “remember” what he told Abraham and others? There seems to be a lot of self-serving comments in the Qur’an that reveal Mohammed’s hatred of the Jews in his area rather than the words of Yahweh.
One must understand that the Jewish rejection of the prophethood of Mohammed deeply affected him. Mohammed wanted to be accepted as a prophet and his pride could not stand the rejection.
