So why do muslims hate jews? Mohammed taught his followers to hate Jews and claimed Allah as the source of this declaration. The modern Muslim hatred for Jews is just part of a long trickling down from decrees in their religious beliefs made by Mohammed. His goal was to create a unified Arabic religion, but in order to make this religion legitimate in the eyes of the religious world, he had to make a connection back to Abraham, which is essential to the Jewish and Christian religions. Mohammed was enraged by the Jewish people’s rejection of him being a prophet when he tried to make an alliance with the surrounding Jewish tribes. To his followers, Mohammed portrayed himself as a victim to Jewish hatred, and on his death bed, he gave an order to kill any Jew his devoted followers came across. The Jews as a whole were disenfranchised even worse by the Muslims throughout time, who were told by religious leaders that the Jews wished to destroy Islam. This turned into a major principle of Islamic thought: all Jews have to be destroyed for the sake of peace in the world. More extremist Muslims have taken this statement to its literal meaning and have attempted to make war on the Jews and eliminate them as a people.
