“The Prophet” (a person regarded as an inspired teacher or proclaimer of the will of God) is incorrectly used when describing Mohammed, the corrupt individual the Muslims refer to as “The Prophet.” Calling Mohammed, a prophet is incorrect because he referred to Allah who is not God the creator. Also, history shows that Mohammed was a corrupt individual. Among other things, he was a murderer, robber, and pedophile. He taught the Muslims to hate the Jews and anybody else who denounced his hatred.
Omar is a Muslim. She has been taught to not only hate the Jewish people, that makes her Anti-Semitic, but to hate all who are not Muslim. Take the time to read this wonderful article that will give you an insight into why Omar and all Muslims are Anti-Semites and haters of all non-Muslims.
Why do Muslims Hate the Jews?
By Dallas M. Roark, Ph.D.
There is a long and complicated history to the Muslim hatred of Jews. Some people seek to trace the issue back to Abraham’s two sons, Isaac and Ishmael, or Isaac’s two sons, Jacob and Esau. Whatever enmity existed between the two offspring, there was not a command of God to kill the Jews. The immense hatred of the Jews began in the time of Mohammed, by Mohammed, and it is alleged that Allah gave the command for it. The Qur’an, the hadiths, and the events in Mohammed’s life will explain the hatred that began with Mohammed and continued in his followers to this day.
1. The Qur’anic data
Q. 5:60 Say (O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path."
This quote is in contradiction to the verses quoted below from the Bible about the Jews as God’s chosen people. Did not Allah “remember” what he told Abraham and others? There seems to be a lot of self-serving comments in the Qur’an that reveal Mohammed’s hatred of the Jews in his area rather than the words of Yahweh.
One must understand that the Jewish rejection of the prophethood of Mohammed deeply affected him. Mohammed wanted to be accepted as a prophet and his pride could not stand the rejection.
Q. 2:61 “And when ye said: O Moses! We are weary of one kind of food; so call upon thy Lord for us that He bring forth for us of that which the earth groweth - of its herbs and its cucumbers and its corn and its lentils and its onions. He said: Would ye exchange that which is higher for that which is lower? Go down to settled country, thus ye shall get that which ye demand. And humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon them and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved in Allah's revelations and slew the prophets wrongfully. That was for their disobedience and transgression.”
This story involves Moses and the Exodus from Egypt and the grumbling of the people for food. This happened about 2000 years before the time of Mohammed. Judgment did take place on the unbelievers who were not allowed into the Promised Land and who died in the wandering in the wilderness. Why should this story be resurrected and used to accuse the Jews in Mohammed’s time? That is irrational. The Jews in Medina did not believe Mohammed because he did not fit the demands of a prophet. For them to accept a false prophet would have been to reject their own revelation from Yahweh who did perform great miracles in rescuing the people from slavery in Egypt. Remember, Mohammed did no miracles!
Q. 2:65-66 “And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated! And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding generations, and an admonition to the God-fearing.”
How can this be accepted by anyone? Yahweh did not make apes out of Jews. If you read the Old Testament you will discover that Yahweh did punish disobedient people in various ways but he never defiled the image of God that he created in humans (cf. Genesis 1:26-27).
Q. 2:96 And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would be no means remove him from the doom. Allah is Seer of what they do.
This is a strange verse since it reflects on Mohammed as a greedy person. He did not work but had his followers raid caravans, plunder villages for gain, and he was to receive 20 percent of the booty. In contrast, many of the Jews were hard working farmers and orchard people who earned a living by the sweat of their brow.
Q. 5:12-13 “Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel… And because of their breaking their covenant, We have cursed them and made hard their hearts. They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished. Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them.”
Q. 5:7 “We made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We sent unto them messengers. As often as a messenger came unto them with that which their souls desired not (they became rebellious). Some (of them) they denied and some they slew.”
There are lots of Jews who were disobedient throughout the history of Israel. Yahweh judged them. Yet, nowhere is there a command for individual non-Jews to hate the Jews. In reality what the Qur’an says about the Jews is seen more widespread in the Muslims’ reactions to Christians. Hundreds of millions of Christians have died because of the brutality of Muslims through the centuries.
2. This hatred is underscored in the hadiths:
"Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews." -- Sahih Muslim 6985
And in Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177 we read: "Allah's Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say: 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him'."
The intolerance of Mohammed and the Muslim movement toward the Jews and the Christians is seen in the hadith, Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4366, narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib: He heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say, “I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.” Other issues may be seen at this site.
3. The Events in Mohammed’s time and his treatment of the Jews.
Mohammed was incensed that the Jew did not accept him as a prophet. There were different tribes of Jews in the area. Mohammed had a truce with the Banu Qaynuqa tribe. He resolved to deal with them for their rejection of him as a prophet. The Muslims laid siege to them and would have killed them had it not been for the intervention of Abdullah bin Ubayy who was a Muslim. They were allowed to leave with their lives but had to turn over all their property to Mohammed. Can you imagine the gain that the Muslims got from this? And Mohammed accused the Jews of being greedy!
A second tribe, Banu Nadir, was expelled when one of their members planned to kill Mohammed but the Muslims learned of the plot and they marched against the tribe and laid siege to it. After a couple of weeks of the siege they agreed to go into exile. They took what they were able to carry themselves, but the rest became Mohammed’s property.
A third tribe, Banu Qurayza, a Jewish tribe was massacred after the battle of the Trench. The Jews did not fight for Mohammed and after the Meccans withdrew the Jewish tribe was laid siege. After 25 days they surrendered and the men were beheaded and the women and children were taken by the Muslims and sold into slavery. Reports on the number of men beheaded range from 600 to 900.
Shortly after this Mohammed attacked Khaybar which was north of Medina in an area where Jews lived. Many of the men were killed and women taken as wives. One person was tortured by building a fire on his chest to force the Jew to tell where a big treasure was hidden. Following the conquest the fruit of the land was to be shared with Mohammed and his wives; i.e., some of the Jews were allowed to stay and farm the land on shares with Mohammed getting 50 percent of the crop; but later the Jews were banished to Syria. (Cf. Sahih Muslim: Book 010, Number 3759)
4. This hatred has continued from the time of Mohammed to the present. A recent story about a Saudi textbook affirms the tradition.
A twelfth-grade Saudi textbook is teaching hatred of Jews and jihad to liberate Palestine, according to MEMRI. The report illustrates that hatred and violence continue to be themes in Saudi educational materials, putting a black mark on the conservative Islamic kingdom's desire to become a "knowledge society."
"Whoever studies the nature of the conflict between the Muslims and the Jews understands an important fact, [namely that] this is a religious conflict, not a dispute about politics or nationality, or a conflict between races or tribes, or a fight over land or country, as some describe it," states Saudi textbook Studies from the Muslim World.
The book says that the conflict will not end unless one side vanquishes the other, because "throughout Islamic history, the Jews have striven to destroy the [Islamic] religion and spread fitna [chaos] among the Muslims. The book also repeats classic anti-Semitic lies that Jews have taken control of Western media and culture, exploited their home societies, and aligned themselves with Christians to destroy Islam.” (Saudi High School Textbook Preaches Hate, Dec. 8, 2011)
There is a good bit of paranoia in these statements. When did the Jews seek to destroy Islam? The Muslims have persecuted the Jews from the time of Mohammed. They have outnumbered the Jews for centuries. Jews have been forced to depart Muslim countries so that very few are left in those countries.
5. In 2011 a survey was taken of 1010 Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza on the question who agreed with the hadith in the Hamas Charter “about the need to kill Jews hiding behind stones, trees. Seventy-three (73) percent of the 1010 Palestinians agreed with the hadith (*).
6. Following are excerpts from statements made at a rally of the Palestinian Al-Ahrar movement in Gaza, a pro-Hamas group that split from Fatah, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on November 3, 2011 (*):
“Praise be to you, our Lord. You have made our killing of the Jews an act of worship, through which we come closer to you.”
From the time of Mohammed to the present there is hatred for the Jews especially and for non-Muslims generally. How does this come about? This amounts to brain-washing on a massive scale. When a young child can appear on a TV show in the Muslim world and professes hate for the Jews this is quite unnatural. Children do not have hate to begin with in their young lives. The only way hate could occur is if the innocent child has been brainwashed. This child probably never saw a Jew or even knew what one was.
