I have not met a Jew in my entire life,but my father and grandfather have did,there were a Jew in my city some some 60 years ago ,but they have left Iraq to Palestine before I born.
Now there is no single Jew in my country Iraq as far as I know.
Now This is the only synagogue(the bluish green dome) that I have seen also in my entire life in Istanbul ,and for my surprise there is a mosque wall by wall with this synagogue ,they are both built some hundred years ago,Now if both religions have lived together as neighbors in their souls and faiths,I could very easily understand that both Muslims and Jews can live together as neighbors wall by wall by their bodies and flesh.
Surprisingly enough all History books says ,when the Jews have been incriminated by European Inquisition courts,they find refuge and protections in Muslims countries and Poland only .
Now I have started to disbelieve contemporary Politicians .
