Islam’s History of Anti-Semitism

An interesting story by Raymond Ibrahim from the Washington Times:

Is there such a thing as Islamic anti-Semitism?… data is significant: This consists of approximately 700, double-column pages of mostly primary text material, loosely divided into two genres: 1) Islamic law’s stance toward the Jew, as delineated by Muslims (lest the charge of “bias” be made) and 2) historical texts documenting Jewish life under Islamic rule…  animosity toward the Jews has a firm doctrinal base tracing back to Islam’s most authoritative texts…  from day one, Jews and Christians have been systematically treated as second-class citizens, “dhimmis,” in the regions conquered by Islam.
