“VIOLENT JIHAD IS NOT RADICAL! How could it be, when Muhammad himself led armies in battle and ordered the killing of recalcitrant non-Muslims?” When I was doing a doctorate in Islamic history at Ohio State University back in the 1990s, the study of the world’s second-largest religion and the civilization it spawned was still mostly an academic exercise, as it had been for …

Anti-Semitism thrives and is unleashed, among other things, when hate is fostered and allowed to go unchecked.  But anti-Semites rarely need an “excuse” to do so.
