yeah compared to europeans, for jews, arab lands or islamic countries were a safe heaven for them, jews were persecuted for two thousand years by the europeans starting from the romans and ending at nazi era, so jews were not hated by the muslims/arabs, as i said, until the issue of israel, there was no grudge against jews by the muslims/arabs1. the tolerance of Muslim states can be overstated. There was a number of anti-Jewish riots in al-Andalus.
2. all of that happened in the Middle Ages. It has no bearing on the situation today.
So, what you're trying to tell me is that the Arabs were willing to tolerate Jews as long as the Arabs remained the masters and the dominant group, but as soon as the Jews wanted a state of their own, they tried to crush them? Besides, what you said is not really true.

i think you should first try to read your own history/ assuming u r from europe, how badly jews were treated in europe before calling muslim protection an ''excuse'' i dont think there is infact any ''excuse'' for the genocides of Israel, especially using ''expulsion excuse'' which i have never heard of, jews were known to have left for israel voluntarily after creation of israel, if arabs did expel them, where they all eventually ended up. calling expulsion as an excuse for massacre is inhumane to say the least, these scenarios can never be compared with each other.People have definitely been badly mistreated on both sides. The expulsion of Jews from many Arab states in modern times cannot in the least be excused by any tolerance shown 1000 years ago.
As I said before, compensation of some kind needs to be given, as needed, to people with genuine grievances arising from bad treatment in this situation. It will cost many billions, but then so does war dragging on for over half a century.
i think that western/european media tries to make muslims or arabs the devil against the jews and present jews as innocent/persecuted people by the muslims/arabs, the western media should bring the history forward how the jews were treated in europe, how jews asked for muslim help when they were butchered in spain and how jews got protected by muslims against your own people, i dont think thats an excuse, thats just plain history and facts mate.
do i need to show you jewish videos how they feel welcomed in muslim lands even today and how they get loathed still in europe?
as i said, the bad blood against jews today is solely because of their actions and their crimes, and not because of inherent hatred against them by muslims like the europeans/christians.
as i stated you can jut watch english/western movies to find the truth, merchant of venice, and The physician for starters, it would elaborate where jews were well treated.
