Harrak , the (handsome) imam wrote:

"I have asked many different students (up to grade 10) from different schools in the west if they know a swearing phrase where the name Jew is included. All those asked this question answered to be familiar with the expression: are you a jew! meaning greedy. I have done a similar research with a different layer of polulation in the west. I targeted old greeks and Italians who are born in their coutries of origin..the result was that in a way or the other, they have some sort of hatred towards America and have a prejudice against the Jewish people. I can not unfold the details of my research as it has not yet patented and for intellectual property rights.

That was actually to inform those who try to explain anti-jewish sentiment as a Muslim or Islamicate phenomenon. My dear friends, No. It is as spread among nationalities as the main Coca Cola..

People should spread the preaching of love not hatred.".

This is impressive. In a few hours your spelling and grammar has improved and you are light years ahead. Now come into the 21century with the same speed. Let the 7th century become a blur.

The very fact that you went around asking these questions from the time you were a little boy shows how anti-semitic you were raised to be. I did not know of anti-semitism when I was a little boy
