An apologist untruth

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Helped Create Israel
in response to reader comment: The only way Israelites can have peace is to live under a Muslim Khilafat

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Mar 28, 2009 at 12:37

If living under Muslim rule was better than under Christian rule, why then did 90 percent of world Jewry prefer to live under Christian rule prior to 1948?

Because the "fact" of Islam's benign rule is as factual as"Palestinian entity from times immemorial", or the Khaliphate being anything but an expression of bloody expansionism serving ruthless empire-building coupled with religiously-inspired terrorism. Jews in Arab lands sought Christian European help against depredations inflicted by intolerant and greedy Muslim rulers, not vice versa.

For evidence please turn to Andrew Bostom's Legacy to Islamic antisemitism, where documentation is irrefutable.
