ONLY CONNECT: Reconsidering Jewish-Muslim History

by Salim Mansur

Salim Mansur is a professor of political science at the University of Western Ontario and a syndicated columnist in Canada and the United Kingdom. A Muslim native to Calcutta, India, and a noted Islamic scholar, Prof. Mansur has written extensively on Islamic extremism and the challenges facing contemporary Islam. In an essay exclusive to Pajamas Media, he discusses one of the most complex and important issues of human history: Jewish-Muslim relations.

“Jewish-Muslim reconciliation is an imperative in and of itself…. It is an imperative as well for global peace, for an end to Muslim terrorism and the war against Muslim terrorism, and for ending a history over-burdened with recriminations, each side denying the other’s capacity to be fully human, with neither recognizing the other as oneself.” (Read the complete essay HERE)
