Hi Hebrew Daughter,

I understand your question and I know how you feel. Yes ma'am, I love my brother and sister jews.

My prophet, Muhammad (pbuh), is from among the brethren of the Israelites(Jacob's father was Ishmael's brother) when Moses said, "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." Clearly he was talking about a descendant of Ishamel. Arabs are brethren of Jews. Abraham (pbuh) had two sons: Ishmael and Isaac (pbut). They were brothers. Therefore, I have much love for all the descendants of Abraham(pbuh). As a matter of fact, I love all the people of the world and I view everyone as a brother and sister as we all are the children of Adam(pbuh) who was created by the God of Abraham.

For over 1000 years when the jews were persecuted by every nation except the Muslim nations where the jews were taken in and they lived peacfully and even attended Muslim Universities back in the day. One example would be Maimondes who was one of the most influential jewish philosophers being influenced by renowned Islamic thinkers such as Ibn Rushd and Al-Ghazali. Maimonides acquired most of his secular knowledge, studying at the University of Al Karaouine in Morocco.

Everything was fine until Israel was taken from the Palestinian people of which hundreds of thousands were exiled and killed and there homes taken from them and still have not been allowed to return home. It is a shame that in the last 100 years some Muslims are commiting crimes against our jewish brothers especially since the beginning of Israel. After that I know that many jews left from the Arab countries due to persections although some stayed. Today, many of the last ones are leaving (iraq and turkey for example) and that it seems a shame for us to persecute all the jewish people for what a few people are doing in Israel.

We have to stop our petty differences and sectarian violence because that is the work of the Satan and his evil forces and he wants to keep us all divided so he can pick us all off. Love for God and our fellow man is the key to defeating them and obtaining paradise, God willing.

peace
