One of the greatest distortions of historical perspective is the claim that the Muslim world was "tolerant." Although life for Jews was almost always better in the medieval Muslim world than in the Christian world, a high price had to be paid. Jews were defined as "dhimmi" ("protected people"), which in effect turned them into permament second class citizens. We will explore the role of "dhimmi" in Muslim theology, and its implications for Jews even to the present day.
