Islam and Anti-Semitism
Numerous well-known Islamic jurists and scholars have affirmed that there is no religious basis of prejudice against Jews.
...Tariq Ramadan says: 'there is nothing in Islam that gives legitimization to Judeophobia, xenophobia and the rejection of any human being because of his religion or group to which he belongs. Anti-Semitism has no justification in Islam, the message of which demands respect for the Jewish religion and spirit, which are considered a noble expression of the People of the Book'
...Historically, we have many precedents of goodwill shown by Muslims to the Jews. Jews thrived for four hundred years in al-Andalus amidst the Muslims during the peak of medieval Islamic civilisation.
...Anti-Semitism is against the basics of Islam. Islam promotes humility and warns against keeping enmity and anger in one's heart. It is a positive sign that many Muslim intellectuals, such as Akbar Ahmed and Tariq Ramadan, are speaking out against anti-Semitism by Muslims. It is also crucial that the Jewish leaders also follow suit and encourage better understanding between Muslims and Jews.
