What Should A Moslem’s View Of The People Of The Book And Atheist Zionism Be?

Exclamation What Should A Moslem’s View Of The People Of The Book And Atheist Zionism Be?
Moslems' attitude towards Jews should be as ordained by the Quran. God reveals in the Qur'an that Jews, like Christians, are part of the people of the book. Moslems as well as Jews believe in the same God and follow the examples set by the prophets sent by Him with due love and respect. Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, Moses, David and Solomon (peace be upon them all) are as important to Moslems as they are to Jews. Moslems address the Jews and the Christians as follows in the Qur'an: "We believe in what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to you. Our God and your God are one and we submit to Him." (Qur'an, 29:46) All forms of social relations between Moslems and Jews must be within a framework of justice, peace and security, and Moslems' attitude towards Jews must always be reconciliatory, forgiving and tolerant.

At various times in their history, Jews suffered oppression and genocide. The main culprit behind such atrocities is anti-Semitic ideology, which led to many tragic events in the 20th century. The true meaning of the term is hatred of Semites, although it is generally understood to mean hatred of Jews. It expresses a hatred for people of Semite descent or the Semitic race. The underlying reason for this hatred for the Semitic races is the hatred felt for the divine religions revealed to them. In other words, Nazism's and other fascist movements' hostility towards Jews is in reality a hatred of religion. Anti-Semitism is therefore a pagan teaching that cannot be adopted by any Moslem. People who advocate and incite anti-Semitism are often revealed to be people who also advocate a return to idolatrous practices and war, who enjoy merciless bloodshed, and who are uncontrolled and barbaric. Such people oppose the peace, modesty, love and compassion of true religious morality taught by the prophets. Moslems and Jews are on the same side against such tyrants. Islam aims to bring justice to the world and condemns anti-Semitism, as it does all forms of racism.

Moslems support the right of the Jews, like all other people, to live in peace and security. Moslem principles have throughout the course of history guaranteed refuge in Moslem lands to Jews fleeing persecution at various times. Jews exiled from Spain were welcomed by the Ottoman Empire, and thousands of them settled down there. The anti-Semitic sentiments often seen in Christian countries never developed on Moslem soil. Jews and Moslems in Moslem lands have lived side by side in peace and security for centuries. It was Islamic principles that created this secure environment.

A Moslem must always bear these facts in mind in his thinking and behaviour regarding Jews. However, Judaism and atheist Zionism must be distinguished between. The ideology of Godless Zionism is principally responsible for the years of endless conflict and war, bloodshed and tears in Palestine. However, atheist Zionism and its real plans are not well known in the West. Many people in the West have been conditioned to believe that atheist Zionism is an ideology which advocates a homeland for the Jewish people and are therefore sympathetic to this ideology, although the reality is altogether different.

There are two varieties of Zionism today. The first of these is the Zionist conception of the devout Jewish people, who wish to live in peace and security in Israel alongside Muslims, seeking peace and wishing to worship in the lands of their forefathers and engage in business. In that sense, Muslims support Zionism. We would fully back the devout Jewish people living in peace and security in their own lands, remembering God, worshipping in their synagogues and engaging in science and trade in their own land.

The Zionist belief held by a devout Jew and based on the Torah does not in any way conflict with the Qur’an. The Jews’ living in that region is indicated in the Qur’an, in which it is revealed that God has settled the Children of Israel on it:
Remember when Moses said to his people, “My people! Remember God’s blessing to you when He appointed prophets among you and appointed kings for you, and gave you what He had not given to anyone else in all the worlds! My people! Enter the Holy Land which God has ordained for you. Do not turn back in your tracks and so become transformed into losers.” (Surat al-Ma’ida: 20-21)

It is the "irreligious, Godless Zionism" that we as Muslims condemn and regard as a threat. These Godless Zionists, who do not defend the existence and oneness of God, but, on the contrary, encourage a Darwinist, materialist perspective and thus engage in irreligious propaganda, are also a threat to devout Jews. Godless Zionism is today engaged in a struggle against peace, security and moral virtue, and constantly produces strife and chaos and the shedding of blood.

What is Godless Zionism and why does this Harun Yoyo/ Adnan Hoca/Oktar multi-named person use this term to slur a "Darwinist materialist perspective" when this view in general promotes liberal values, rationality and freedom.

I think Yoyo's diatribe has little to do with Jews, and is another weasel worded attack on rational thought.
