    Testing, testing

    Speaking of facts, the amusing fact is that Jewish historians used to contrast the toleration practiced in the Muslim world favorably with persecution in the Christian world.

    Only after the partition of Palestine did Jewish historians change their tune & start looking for instances of pogroms & persecutions in the distant past of Muslim-Jewish relations.

    In most areas at most times, Jews were at least as well off, if not usually better, under Muslim than Christian rule. Even in the 20th century, that was certainly true, if Nazi Germany may be considered Christian, which it wasn't, so let's say Muslim world vs. Europe.
