Naseem Rajwaan, Editor-in-chief of the Israeli newspaper ‘Israel haYom’ wrote:
“The Jews had suffered for many centuries in misery, as the hardhearted tyrant kings of Spain knew nothing of pity and compassion. When the Muslims entered Spain, they did not only liberate the Jews from persecution, but they also encouraged them to establish a civilization that parallels in its richness and depth the most famous civilizations of all ages.”
End quote from Ahl al-Kitaab fii’al-Mujtama’ al-Islaamee (p. 49).
The Jewish writer Chaim al-Zafarani says in his book ‘Alf Sanah min Hayaat al-Yahood fi’l-Maghreb’ (A Thousand Years of Jewish Life in the Maghreb) (p. 13):
“The Jews of Andalusia in general knew a life of the greatest ease and security, such as they had never known anywhere else.”
