The fiasco continues.
Islamophobes are fabricating the myth that Islam promotes Jew-hatred by taking out ads on D.C. buses. Take a look at the ad, linked above—does anyone else find it insane that these ignorant people are spending money promoting pictures of Adolf Hitler?
Now, certainly some Muslims are anti-Jewish, as are some Christians, agnostics, atheists—you get the idea. However, nothing in the Qur’an or in Prophet Muhammad’s example supports the myth of “Islamic Jew hatred.”
As I detail in my upcoming book, EXTREMIST, an objective study of Islam demonstrates that the myth of Islamic Jew hatred crumbles like a house of cards.
So let’s dig in.
Those who proclaim Islamic Jew-hatred deliberately misrepresent the Qur’an 7:167—among several more verses. My analysis of 7:167 below—which is equally applicable to any allegedly “anti-Jew” verse—demonstrates without question that nothing here is “anti-Jewish.” But to remain objective, I reference Dr. Philip Jenkins—a prolific non-Muslim academic—who, on the question of Islamic Jew-hatred writes in his book Laying Down the Sword:

we need to teach our children and students to accept and respect the different belief, idea, thought and gender.
If we can do it and start from our home and other. it will make difference. and better. Amen
Are you not Reading The Muslim Times properly? You will find here so many articles on Love for All !!!

Yes, Muslim Ahmadiyah is including in 5 % promoting ==Love for all==keep doing it, it is cool.
95% do not promote ==love for all=
The Holy Quran and the Jews
Often some of the verses of the Holy Quran about the Jews become a public debate.
The fact of the matter is that the Holy Quran wants to make a case of Islam and of prophethood of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may peace be on him, as continuation of the Jewish prophets and Jesus, may peace be on him, who is also regarded by the Quran, as a Jewish prophet.
Incidentally, one of the chapters of the Holy Quran out of the 114 is named after Israelites.
The ‘negative references,’ about the Jews in the Holy Quran, are only pertaining to the negative actions of certain Jews of the time of Muhammad, may peace be on him.
The Holy Quran does not stereotype them in any negative sense.
Let me collect a few positive references about Jews and everyone in general:
