Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism: From Sacred Texts to Solemn History

Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism: From Sacred Texts to Solemn History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive, meticulously documented collection of scholarly articles presents indisputable evidence that a readily discernible, uniquely Islamic antisemitism — specific Muslim hatred of Jews — has been expressed continuously since the advent of Islam.

Review:

"The publication of the present anthology of primary sources and secondary studies on the theme of Muslim antisemitism is a groundbreaking event of major scholarly, cultural, and political significance. Editor Andrew Bostom has mined the relevant literature to produce the fullest record on this subject in existence. After the publication of his work, all the oft-repeated, but erroneous misunderstandings of a tolerant Islam, and of a medieval Jewish-Muslim 'golden age' will need to be permanently retired. Everyone interested in Jewish and Islamic history, as well as current events in the Middle East, should read this book — and soon." Steven T. Katz, Director, Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies, Boston University, and author of Post-Holocaust Dialogues and The Holocaust in Historical Context

Review:

"The antisemitism of the Muslim Middle East that we hear, see, and experience daily — from the racist cartoons to the constant chorus of 'pigs and apes' — is often attributed to European origins, as if the radical Muslim world learned this endemic hatred through the tragedy of imperialism and colonialism. In fact, a deep suspicion and frequent loathing of Jews is deeply rooted in the Middle East, antedating European rule and sometimes evidenced in passages in the Koran and early holy Islamic texts.... Andrew Bostom produces a vast literature of Middle Eastern Islamic antisemitism, and critics may be as surprised at his conclusions as they are unable to refute his carefully compiled corpus of evidence." Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution, Stanford University, author of Carnage and Culture and A War Like No Other

Review:

"The value of Dr. Bostom's book is that it is a vast collection of important documents — what historians have traditionally prioritized — all of which make it clear that enmity for Jews has a firm grounding in Islamic tradition....a welcome contribution." The Washington Times

Review:

"Stimulating and informative: a fascinating and disturbing voyage of historical discovery.... It is magnificent." Martin Gilbert, official biographer of Winston Churchill, author of Never Again: A History of the Holocaust and The Jews of Arab Lands: Their History in Maps
