Are the Arabs Innocent?

Elliot A. Green says no. In an article on History News Network, he catalogues the mistreatment of Jews by Arabs throughout history. He focuses on the treatment of Jews in Jerusalem under the Ottoman Empire and during the British Mandate. The status of Jews as second-class citizens is part of the Muslim religion and included restrictions on dress, riding of horses and an annual tribute. Green laments the fact that while this information has been studied and documented, those who influence puplic policy and opinion refuse to believe it. And so the myth of Arab innocence lives on.
