Second Point

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

Submitted by Randy Williamson (United States), Feb 15, 2005 at 10:11

I some what take issue with your second point "From Christian to Muslim". The Jews may have fled Christendom for Islamdom, but Islam was well on its way to passing Christiandom in killing and persecuting the Jews by the 9th century. I am currently reading Joan Peter's book "From Time Immemorial" and she has done a wonderful job documenting this progression of persecution/oppression/killing of Jews throughout the centuries by Islam. I would say that anti-Semitism was as much a Muslim affair after the 8th-9th centuries as it was Christian.

PS I think you're doing a GREAT job keeping people informed about the rising threat within our country. I read your articles regularly. I recently returned from my 4th trip to Israel and while I was in the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem I came across some of the extreme hatred for the Jews AND America. People in this country need to wake up to the fact that Islam is not a peaceful religion as some are purporting. Anyway, keep up the good work.
