In his important book Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition, the scholar David Nirenberg makes the persuasive case that Islam has faced similar theological challenges to Christianity in assessing its relationship to Judaism. On the one hand, Nirenberg argues, Islam regards the Jews as “enemies” of Muhammad’s prophecy; on the other, Islam realizes only too well that, without the existence of the Jews and their practices to begin with, there would have been no subsequent prophetic tradition and faith to follow. “How to appropriate the prophetic claims of Jewish communities without ‘Judaizing Islam?’” writes Nirenberg, summarizing the core of the Muslim dilemma. “How to contain or exclude them without severing Islam from its Abrahamic foundations?” I’ve mused a great deal on this passage in recent weeks, as I’ve reported on three separate occasions on antisemitic sermons of varying ferocity at three different mosques in the US, all posted on social media platforms and then unearthed by the Middle East Media Research Institute. What these sermons have in common is that they were delivered on Friday, December 8, 2017 — the same week that President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. All of them drew on similar images, themes and quotations. All of them utilized language and sentiments that would be regarded by any rational calculation as unambiguously threatening towards Jews. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 21 NON ISLAMIC COUNTRIES WHO HAVE JIHAD: America, Israel, Africa (continent add 10+ countries to the 21), Spain, Germany, Canada, France, Belgium, Australia, Russia, England, China, Thailand, Philippines, Italy, Malaysia, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway, Austria, India, who else???
