It's not totally your fault that you are mistaken on this point. Modern historical literature is highly politicized and has an agenda to paint the picture you mentioned. But it is a largely false picture. Simple question: If things were so good under the Muslims, why did Jews leave Arab lands for Europe starting *after* the Muslim conquests of the 7th-9th centuries? Read original travelogues and diaries written by Muslims, Christians and Jews, and you will see that the descriptions of Muslim treatment are not what the toe-the-line history books say today.
