In an article titled “Are the Jews Truly the Descendants of Apes and Pigs?” in his regular column on the liberal website elaph.com, Kurdish-Iraqi writer Mehdi Majid ‘Abdallah urged the Arabs and Muslims to stop referring to Jews as ‘the descendants of apes and pigs,’ because this term is based on a false story in Islamic tradition. ‘Abdallah added that the Arabs invent stories slandering the Jews in order to compensate for their inability to compete with them and surpass them.
The Jews Should Be Called ‘The Descendants Of The Prophets’ Instead Of ‘The Descendants Of Apes And Pigs’
“People who draw inferences from the past to the present and future, and therefore describe the Jews as the descendants of apes and pigs, should call themselves ‘the descendants of homosexuals’ and ‘the descendants of red flag women’ (in the pre-Islamic era, prostitutes in the Arabian Peninsula would fly red flags to signal that they were available for sexual pleasure). [That’s what they should do] if they apply to themselves the same standard they apply to others.
“The terrible tragedy is that, when Jews are angry at those who describe them in this way, and refuse to communicate with them or befriend them, they are accused of being racist and arrogant and of holding others in contempt. The Jews are [apparently] expected to agree to be apes and pigs, and to smile at those who call them by this name, and hug and kiss them.
“In sum, the time has come for Arabs and Muslims to [discard] the epithet ‘descendants of apes and pigs’ when describing the Jews, and replace it with the epithet ‘descendants of the prophet Jacob, the prophet Joseph and the prophet Moses.’ This would be a most respectful, peace-loving and dignified thing to do… Are there any ears receptive [to my call]?”
