NoReading this post, do you have an instinctive negative reaction to the J word?
No, many Muslims simply generalise, Jews negatively portrayed in the Quran/hadith also play a part in this.Do you think they are fairly or rationally characterised in conversations between ordinary muslims?
1. Jews and their reference (a negative one) in the Quran
2. Jews (i.e. Israel) and their involvement in oppressing Palestine
Sometimes you will find a Muslim who is actually more concerned about the destruction of Masjid Al Aqsa by Israeli hands, than the murder of masses of Muslim Palestinians by Israeli hands.
Many Muslims will say such and such a Muslim community is being killed by Non Muslims (ironically) because they are Un-Islamic.
In what is termed modern anti semitism it is the actions of Israel which are the causing the problems. I live in a predominately Jewish area and other Jewish areas like say Stamford Hill don't have problems between Muslims and Jews although I believe there might have been one attack during cast lead in Golders Green. It is Israels actions which trigger anti Jewish sentiment not the Quran and Hadith.
The majority of Jews support Israel.
Muslims do not support a country there is no concept of nationalism in Islam. Muslims do not support the notion that one race is superior and that Muslim blood is more precious than anyone elses. Have a look how many Muslims are being killed (including children) not just in Palestine but in all countries where Israel and it's proxies have armies or drones and you will see hundreds of death but that news will not make it to the news and neither will you know their names or see their funerals on TV.
In reference to Quran/Ahadeeth, unless we gain a proper understanding we can pretty much justify anything. From forced marriage, wife beating and anti semitism to takfeerism and terrorism.
3/ you miss the role of the lobbies who influence so called anti terrorism policy both here and in the USA. We are all Palestinians.
I asked you to produce links to reliable, non biased sites showing the majority of Jews support Israel and the mass murders in Palestine.
I'll have a go at using her logic:
The UK government supports Israel therefore the majority of UK nationals do - JL is a UK national, thus, she supports Israel.
Hell's bells, JL is a Zionist.
So far, several blusters but no evidence at all.
Perhaps JL can be helped by visiting this link but I'm unsure it works on the oral version of her problem.
I love arguments.
To be effective, you have to research points made by other posters.
That, in turn, led me to this.
Jolly handy (if you have Android).
