This will only come as a surprise to those who are unaware that the Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims.

They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82);
they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181);
they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64);
they love to listen to lies (5:41);
they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13).
They are disputing and quarreling (2:247);
hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78);
staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55);
being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44);
giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87);
wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109);
feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120);
being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18);
devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161);
slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46);
killing the prophets (2:61);
being merciless and heartless (2:74);
never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100);
being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79);
being cowardly (59:13-14);
being miserly (4:53);
being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166);
and more.
They are under Allah’s curse (9:30),
and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“We grew up from childhood hating, cursing Jews,” by Ensaf Haidar, Jerusalem Post, September 12, 2019:

"We were taught in the Arab world that the Holocaust was just a big lie. It was only when we grew up and opened ourselves to the world of ideas and humanity that we discovered Jews are in fact human beings, and good people, too.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Ensaf Haidar. I am the wife of Raif Badawi, a prisoner of conscience who is now serving his seventh year behind dark, cold prison walls in Saudi Arabia.

Two days after the horrific Charlie Hebdo massacre, my husband was dragged from his jail cell in Jeddah, brought to a square in front of Al-Jafali Mosque, and administered the first phase – 50 lashes – of a public flogging.

His crime? His indictment says he was guilty of 'insulting Islam' and 'producing what would disturb public order, religious values and morals.'

His real crime, in fact, can be summarized in one sentence: He believed in his fundamental right to express his opinion.

Freedom of expression is at the heart of Raif’s case.

Also central to his case is Raif’s vision of a different future for his country and region; a future based on our shared humanity; one based on acceptance, respect and mutual understanding; one that aspires for peace in the region.

Central to this vision is an end to the discourse of hatred that we have learned in our childhood, mainstreamed by extremist religious dogmas and cynical governmental exploitation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Central to this vision is an acceptance that we are all equal in dignity and rights regardless of our religion, thoughts, gender, color or social status.

Central to this vision is the recognition that Jews are not our enemies…."
