Summary Examines the status of the Jews in the Islamic world from the early days of Islam to the present. Challenges accepted stereotypes of the Muslim attitude to non-believers as one of either utopian tolerance and harmony or fanaticism and persecution. Theologically, Islam has never accorded equality to non-believers, but the status of dhimmi, second-class citizens, assures rights established in law. Focuses on the attitude of those in power towards Jews at different times and places, from persecution (which was rare) through humiliation to tolerance
