Muslims don't consider Jews enemies. Muslims believe in their holy book (Torah) and their prophet (Moses; peace be upon him). Muslims consider Jews as "people of the book". There are still many Jews residing and living in many Islamic countries without any discrimination or enmity.

However, Muslims may consider the Israelis as enemies because of the aggression and oppression that they exercise against the Palestinians and because of the massacres that they committed against them to drive them away from their lands in addition to what they doing in the AlAqsa Mosque that may lead to its destruction.

Why did the spanish Jews welcome the Muslin invasions?

Answer 1Possibly because initially, at last, Muslims were more tolerant of Jews than were early Christians, who maintained that the Jews had killed their Saviour.Answer 2Jews assisted Muslims in their conquests throughout the Rise of Islam period. A great example of this was when the Muslims captured the city of Cordoba. They approached the Jewish community, gave them weapons, and asked them to be the stewards of the city until the Conquest of Spain was complete. The Jews sided with the Muslims because pogroms under Muslim rule occurred far less than in Europe. Additionally, as Jews were not Christians, Muslims did not fear any Jewish insurrection whereas they did fear Christian insurrections, making the Muslims more open and trusting of Jews. Because of this Jews and Muslims had minimal confrontation in Islamic Empires.
