Britain First’s Plot Backfires: Islam and Christianity – Anti Semitism
Britain First’s Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding were trying to cause further divisions between British Jews and British Muslims
Jayda Fransen was trying to frame Islam as being Anti-Semitic yet when put alongside experts in Islam we just see how lacking in intellectual and scholarly fortitude her propaganda piece was.
It takes somebody like Professor Tariq Ramadan, of Oxford University, to blow away their propaganda piece and Dr Timothy Winter, of Cambridge University, to teach us about Christian History and Anti-Semitism.
Britain First claims to be a Christian organisation so I’m not sure why the two most prominent members of Britain First are unaware of Christian Anti-Semitic history.
Britain First Members Getting Punched in the Nose Intellectually
Numerous well-known Islamic jurists and scholars have affirmed that there is no religious basis of prejudice against Jews.
…Tariq Ramadan says: ‘there is nothing in Islam that gives legitimization to Judeophobia, xenophobia and the rejection of any human being because of his religion or group to which he belongs. Anti-Semitism has no justification in Islam, the message of which demands respect for the Jewish religion and spirit, which are considered a noble expression of the People of the Book’
…Historically, we have many precedents of goodwill shown by Muslims to the Jews. Jews thrived for four hundred years in al-Andalus amidst the Muslims during the peak of medieval Islamic civilisation.
…Anti-Semitism is against the basics of Islam. Islam promotes humility and warns against keeping enmity and anger in one’s heart. It is a positive sign that many Muslim intellectuals, such as Akbar Ahmed and Tariq Ramadan, are speaking out against anti-Semitism by Muslims. It is also crucial that the Jewish leaders also follow suit and encourage better understanding between Muslims and Jews.
