'At one time Jews and Muslims got along as others have said here in Palestine; and I might add in other places, even Bombay. They say the European influence through colonialism, etc. poisoned the well.' I think that puts things in a somewhat distorted light. Muslims got along with Jews and Christians all right -- as long as it was clear who was top dog. What is fair to say is that historically, Muslim-dominated societies have been far more tolerant of Jews and Christians than Jewish- and Christian-dominated societies have been of Muslims. Even today, France et al are having obvious problems, and however one wishes to apportion the blame, it's clear the Jews of Israel have not worked out how to successfully coexist with 'Arabs.'
