Pandemic of Hate in the Middle East
6-7-21, FrontPage* -- Concurrent with Israel’s military response to the latest wave of Islamic terror of rocket and mortar salvos targeting Jewish civilian areas — the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) issued a May 20, 2021 press release chronicling “a dangerous and drastic surge in anti-Jewish hate right here at home,” in the United States. We have people waving Muslim Palestinian flags and then attacking Jewish people. Omitted from ADL’s assessment was any reference to the organization’s own copious global polling data on the disproportionate occurrence of virulently Anti-Semitic attitudes among Muslims.
At least six of eleven Anti-semitic stereotypes are 2- to 4.5-fold more common among Muslims, relative to non-Muslims, worldwide; per the ADL’s 2014-2019 surveys:
Intellectually honest assessments of what animates such intense Muslim Jew-hatred—whether the current pandemic, or regional historical examples dating back to at least the 9th century, demonstrate Islam itself engenders this pervasive phenomenon. From their teachings:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth (Islam) from those who were given the Scripture (Jews/other ‘scriptuaries’) - [fight] until they give the jizya (Koranic poll-tax, in lieu of being slain) willingly while they are humbled (such as the humiliating jizya collection ‘rituals’, blows, mock beheadings, etc.).”
The late Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University reiterated the overarching principle, established across a millennium of uniform commentary on this verse from their book the Koran: Jews (and other “scriptuaries,” or “People of the Book,” Christians) must be fought, subdued and humbled because they constitute a chronic danger to an Islamic, Sharia-based society.
When will non-Muslim religious, political and “intellectual” leaders publicly denounce the ongoing, institutionalized Jew-hatred of Sunni Islam’s pre-eminent teaching institution, Al-Azhar University, and insist upon wrenching reforms of mainstream Islam’s “sacralized,” Jew-hating canon?
