A false idea that has gained currency is that of animosity between Jews and Muslims. Whatever the rights and wrongs of Israel-Palestine issue, there has never been enmity between the followers of two religions. Never in the history of Islam, has there been any persecution of Jews. During Muslim rule there have never been any pogroms, no ethnic cleansing, no massacres of Jews and no holocausts. In fact Golda Meir famously remarked that Muslim rule in Spain was the golden period for Jews. By portraying the fallout of political conflict of today as Jew-Muslim conflict, a wrong impression is being created that somehow Muslims have the same attitude towards Jews as Europeans Christian have had for centuries.
