Vlad: Just a segment from an excellent Michael Coren episode. I will upload another segment tomorrow.
NOTE: The myth of Jews and Christians living in peace in Arab/Muslim lands gets another airing here, it’s a false meme, no matter times its presented. Yes, at times, certain communities of Muslims were more tolerant of Jews and Christians, but it rested upon the ruler at the time. Depending upon how badly they needed the two minority groups to produce and help Muslim society greatly reflected on the tolerance shown.
Whenever the inevitable push came to reverse the tolerant trend, they succeeded in doing so, based upon traditional and scholastic understandings of Islamic texts. Read Andy Bostom’s Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism. KGS
