I can't count how many times atheists have told me the bible says I am not to eat shellfish, or wear clothing made of two different types of materials, or that the bible not only condones slavery but instructs us at times we should engage in it...... its funny how those who read something wanting it to be evil, will find evil.
Kind of like what so many Americans are now doing with the Koran. Sad really.
A recent long time friend of a few years disconnected from me telling me all Muslims are evil and all want to kill anyone who is a non-believer and that fact I don't believe that makes me stupid and ignorant of the truth.
So today I want to share with you all the following:
THE MUSLIM KING WHO SAVED JEWS
King Mohammed V of Morocco saved his country’s 250,000 Jews from persecution and death at the hands of France's pro-Nazi Vichy regime during the Holocaust.
King Mohammed was determined to preserve Morocco's ancient Jewish community, and he extended his unwavering protection for three long years of Nazi occupation.
Born in 1909, Mohammed ascended to the throne as Sultan in 1927, when he was only 18 years old. Morocco was a French protectorate, so when Germany invaded France in 1940 and installed a collaborationist regime, the North African nation also fell under Nazi rule.
The Nazi regime immediately tried to pass laws in Morocco to ban Jews from various professions, expel them from the best schools, and create a ghetto.
The young king (32 years old) blocked all anti-Jewish legislation. He refused to identify the nation’s Jews. “There are no Jews in Morocco,” he said, “only subjects."
He stood firm against ghettoizing and deporting Moroccan Jews despite constant pressure from the Vichy authorities. In a proud show of defiance, the king invited all the rabbis of Morocco to attend the royal throne celebration in 1941.
In 1948, King Mohammed became troubled by anti-Jewish incitement in the Arab world against the new state of Israel. He issued a stern warning to his subjects not to hurt Jews, reminding them that Jews had always been protected in Morocco.
Mohammed V died in 1961, at age 51.
For his strong stance against Nazi persecution, he was honored posthumously by the Institute for World Jewish Studies with the Reverend King /Rabbi Heschel Award.
The December 2015 awards ceremony in New York was attended by Princess Lalla Hassna, grandaughter of King Mohammed V. She brought a message from her brother, the current monarch King Mohammed VI:
"We are living at a time and in a world in which the collective imagination of our societies is too often impaired, not to say poisoned, by regression and archaism. By capitalizing on the depth and resilience of the legacy left by my revered grandfather His Majesty Mohammed V, we can, together, set out to recover the lost expanses of reason and mutual respect which have vanished from many parts of the world.”
