For anyone who is interested in this - The Jews of Moslem Spain, by Ashtor. Has it been translated into Arabic? Some of what I am reading in Arabic on this subject, 'history' books recently published in the Arab World, is not every enlightened - to say the least. On the other hand, to generalize that the current state of affairs and current negative attitudes towards Jews that is dominate in the Arab and Muslim World today was always the case is historically wrong. History should not be ignored, but neither should the present.
