Islamic anti-semitism started with Mohammed

Reader comment on item: Pakistan's Jewish Problem

Submitted by Nafata Bamaguje (Nigeria), Aug 13, 2009 at 08:39

"With only slight modifications, Arabs and Iranians imported intact these two European traditions of grand conspiracy; as a result, the conspiracy theories developed in Russia during the 1890s remain surprisingly potent in today's Middle East" – Middle East fears of conspiracy .

I disagree that Islamic Semitism has anything to do with European traditions of grand conspiracy. Rather it is deeply rooted in "prophet" Mohammed's conflict with Medinan Jews, because the Jews refused to massage Mo's bloated narcissist ego by endorsing his bogus prophethood.

Mo' craved Jewish validation because this business of prophets was hitherto a Jewish tradition, which he hijacked for megalomanic self-glorification. By denying Mo' recognition, the Jews were in effect calling Mo' a fraud, which would have undermined his authority among early Muslims.

Mo' couldn't tolerate that, so he changed the Qiblah (from Jerusalem to Mecca) and gradually ethnically cleansed Jews from Arabia then instructed Muslims to exterminate Jews:

"Allah's Apostle (Mohammed) said, 'You Muslims will fight the Jews till some of them hide behind stones. The stones will betray them saying, "O Abdullah (slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "- Sahih Bukhari 4:5:176, 177
