A highly recommended work for every Muslim by a masterful historian and expert on Islam, clearing the misconception and propaganda that is force-fed into Muslims' minds all over the world by their political and religious leaders.

Tarek Fatah's latest book "The Jew is Not My Enemy" should be required reading for every Muslim and should be translated in Arabic, Urdu, Persian and Turkish so that the hatred against Jews in the Muslim world is challenged. Until I read this book, I had always believed that Prophet Muhammad had massacred 700 Jews in cold blood and this had always bothered me as inconceivable. Thank God for Tarek Fatah to expose this false bravado inserted in Muslim dogma by medieval Arab caliphates.

I was also intrigued by the dedication of this book. I Tarek Fatah does not follow conventional wisdom and dedicate the book to his wife, parents or family. Instead, he brings up a character from the Second World War that the world has largely forgotten: A Muslim Princess from India, Noor Inayat Khan, known in the West as Nora Baker. I had known about this young Muslim woman "who did not have to die, but chose to give her life to defeat the nazis and bring an end to the Holocaust." I did not know Muslims died in Auschwitz. How many Muslims or Jews know this? Almost none.

This work of scholarship should be widely read by both Muslim and Jew. It is breezy read and chapter one, where Fatah documents the attack on a Jewish centre of Mumbai by Pakistani jihadis, reads more like a thriller than history. When the Muslims and Jews finally bury the hatchet, they should both tank this book for triggering that process.

If you have not read Fatah's his first book "Chasing a Mirage: The Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State," I strongly recommend you get yourself a copy as it is almost sold out. The Mirage is a treasure for anyone wishing to understand the difference between a Muslim and an Islamist and why Islam and Islamism are at odds with each other.

"O Allah, Completely Destroy and Shatter the Jews" , As a person(African) who visit mosques regularly I have never been comfortable of listening the above prayer when some imams say. Every Muslim should read this book and understand why Muslims mustn't hate Jews or any other people/group.

The only reason some Muslims hate the Jews is because some religious leaders/imams from middle east has brainwashed them. I had a friend who grew up in Kuwait, and he had some antisemitism feelings. One day I have asked him why he has that feelings towards the Jews, and if they have done anything wrong to him/family or his country or whether there is anything religious abut having anti antisemitism. He took a pause and frankly told me no they haven't done anything wrong to him and he has never seen anything antisemitism in either the Quran or the Hadith(Saying of the prophet, peace be upon him). He stated that his school books in Kuwait were full of hatred toward the Jews.

I just come back from middle east and have seen a lot of hatred towards the Jews, and believe me, all has to do with the conflict between the Israel and the Palestinians/Arabs, and nothing to do with the Muslims and the Jews.

As a Muslim, I really thank the author for putting this to light.

Congratulations! Alhumdulillah! Mazel Tov!This is a wonderful,long-needed exposé of a serious disease within the Islamic community.As a convert to Islam of some 33 years,of Jewish origins myself,I have come up against this anti-Semitism over and over again and it has often hurt my heart.I have,nevertheless,managed to preserve my faith because of the deeper and incontestable truths within the Islamic tradition something that Tarek Fatah appreciates as well.His analysis is well-researched and well thought-out and there is no doubt that Muslims, especially, have every interest in reading it.I hope it is translated into Arabic and Urdu and gets a a full hearing in those countries where there is so much misinformation and conspiracy theorizing on this subjec
I would like to add a couple of caveats however.Firstly,it is unfortunate that Tarek Fatah does not give enough attention to the spiritual wing of Islam-Sufism.It is somewhat ironic that he mentions Noor Inayat Khan and dedicates his book to her but forgets to mention that she is the daughter of Hazrat Inayat Khan who brought Sufism to the West and the sister of Pir Vilayat Khan who did so much work to spread Sufism in the West.I am the product of this tradition and it has been my path to and in Islam.As well,the Sufis have been combatting Islamic extremism well before the West even knew it existed.
Another point that would be very interesting for Muslims to consider is the timing logistics of the Quran-i.e.the Quran is revealed at the beginning of the Islamic tradition,by definition..God has 2500 years of Jewish history to commemt on and about 600 years of Christian hisatory.One can only imagine what He would say about Muslims now after 1500 years of Islamic history!
