Note: I won't change the following answers, but the truth is that the Jews are not against the Muslims. There is nothing in the Jewish religion that teaches us to be against Muslims. If a Jew is against a Muslim, that person acts outside of Judaism.

Answer A - Christian Answer

If there is an explicit biblical explanation for this animosity, it goes all the way back to Abraham. The Jews are descendants of Abraham's son Isaac. The Arabs are descendants of Abraham's son Ishmael. With Ishmael being the son of a slave woman and Isaac being the promised son who would inherit the blessings of Abraham, obviously there would be some animosity between the two sons. As a result of Ishmael's mocking Isaac , Sarah talked Abraham into sending Hagar and Ishmael away. Likely, this caused even more contempt in Ishmael's heart towards Isaac. An angel prophesied to Hagar that Ishmael would "live in hostility toward all his brothers"

Answer B - Muslim Answer

Historically: they were informed in their scriptures that a last prophet will be sent by God. They wished the last prophet to be from Isaac descendants. However, the last prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon him), is from the Ismael (Ishmael), and not Isaac, descendants. Accordingly, they felt that they are losing their influence on the people of the area. consequently, they started fighting and plotting against prophet Muhammad and Muslim followers to the extent that they cooperated with the non believers against him.

Politically: since the establishment of the country of Israel in the Middle East on the lands that originally belonged to the Palestinian people and getting control of the Muslim sacred Mosque in Jerusalem they are trying to maintain military power superiority over Muslims.

Hint on Answer A above:

  • It seems illogical for a great prophet such as Abraham to have illegal son of a servant woman. Prophet Abraham married Hagar, with advice of his first wife Sarah, to bring a child for Abraham. then, by God miracle, Sarah was given birth to Isaac after she felt desperate to have son.
  • It seems illogical for prophets as Ishmael and Isaac, sons of the greatest prophet and father of all prophets, to have animosity between themselves. The animosity and hostility were from the descendants of Isaac against Ishmael and his descendants.

Answer C - Muslim Answer

Jews are against Muslims because they are dependent on the economic system which is based on interest (riba, sood) and now in the world they have fear of Islamic ideology in which the interest / riba is strictly prohibited (Haram) that's why Jews want to remove Islamic ideology. they have done same of this with the Jesus Christ and they are doing it by banking system

The phrasing of the question is to imply that a group of Jews of significant size and percentage in the Jewish community not only has direct animus towards Muslims but is actually trying to sabotage Islam in some way. There is no evidence of this or anything like it. There are certainly conflicts in Israel and Palestine vis-a-vis territorial control, national identity, etc., but no Jewish group aside from marginal groups like Kach Kohane Chai ever manifest Anti-Muslim tendencies. Judaism has had a long history of directly benefiting from a better relationship with Muslims than with Christians and therefore remained loyal to Muslims in places such as the Ottoman Empire long after most of the Christian groups had splintered off into independent nations. Writings by the Rambam, one of Medieval Judaism's most important Rabbi, argued that Islam has a divine role to play in popularizing the worship of the one true God in a way that Judaism cannot. Rambam also argued that given Islam's religious similarities to Judaism, that temporary conversion to Islam to avoid violence was permissible. (However, this latter view is and remains very controversial, while the former has never been seriously challenged.)

In short, Jews are not against Muslims. Israel and Palestine is a particular conflict with particular grievances and if those localized grievances were resolved, no further enmity would between Jews and Muslims, at least as far as Jews are concerned.

As for the Community Answers, it is worth noting that, except for the Note at the top, none of them are written by Jews and the Muslim Answers are claims that Jews have never actually made, but are reinforced by certain Hadiths and claims by early Faqihs (Islamic Jurists) concerning the Jews. The first, raised by Answer B, argues that the Jews were angered that Muhammad, a Non-Jew was the final prophet. This is false as Jews simply did not accept Muhammad's claims to prophecy and conversely Muhammad became increasingly angry with them (rather than the reverse). Answer C makes the claim that Jews are trying to destroy Islam because of Islamic Banking, which would end interest and therefore destroy Judaism. The major failures here are to claim that banking is somehow part and parcel of Jewish identity and that Islamic Banking can actually function well enough to replace interest-generating monetary arrangements.

Jews lived side-by-side with Muslims for many centuries in relative peace. No normal Jew is against Muslims as such. Jews are only against anyone who attacks them, no matter what the religion or ethnicity of the attacker is.

Jews do not intentionally kill Muslims or people from any specific religious group. About 20% of the total population of Israel are Arab citizens. Most of those are Sunni Muslims. The majority identify themselves as Arab or Palestinian by nationality, and Israeli by citizenship. Many have family ties to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, as well as to Palestinians in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Muslim Bedouins in the Negev tend to identify more as Israelis than other Arab citizens of Israel.

All of the above are citizens of Israel, with full voting rights in local and national elections, and several Muslims have been elected and serve in Israel's parliament (the Knesset). Neither the voters nor those elected routinely fear for their lives.

Of course, there have been Palestinians killed by Israelis, just as Israelis have been killed by Palestinians.
