No, I won't excuse you. Can you name an Islamic state which only allows Muslims to immigrate, or which keeps any religious minority section of their population such as Christians and Jews under military occupation, denies them citizenship, sends planes round to bomb Christians' and Jews' houses if they are suspected of having committed a crime, or forces Christians and Jews from their land and homes to make way for Muslim settlers?
Even if it isn't their government's policy?
Is there a situation where you would be as comfortable calling Israel a Jewish state?
Jews are unwelcome in most Islamic countries - in various degrees, officially and unofficially.
(Note also the several contemporary reasons (other than Zionism
) for Arab antisemitism.)
