Description from the publisher:
To the Reader : This book is in part, a criticism of the account of how "all" the Jews and their "children" are harshly treated by the authors of the Bible. As a Muslim I take Abraham to be the Great Grand-father of both Arabs and Jews. Also I, as a religious monotheist, recognize and deeply believe in both Moses and Jesus as great messengers/prophets of God, as I have pointed out time and again in my book. In my opinion, history points to the merits of many noble Jews. Therefore, I am at a loss repeatedly when I read how the Bible (both The Old and The New Testaments) mentions so many negative remarks describing "all" Jews. Those who wish to criticize me, I invite to read the specific passages of the Bible which I have quoted and the references I have cited, and to judge for themselves whether or not these accounts are reasonable, fair, and just descriptions of the Jewish people, of whom there are many outstanding examples in the history of mankind. I sincerely and strongly believe that Islam is Allah-instituted for all humanity. Hence, I humbly invite everyone to study Islam and its Allah-Perfected Pal therein for the best possible world order. Thus, I wrote this book as an expression of the joy in my heart for Allah and of my com-passion for His creatures. This invitation is especially extended to my Jewish and Christian friends to join me for a better future world order, under One God, Allah.
