It a lie - which is all muslims do when it comes to their “scriptures” and their “history”.
The Jews were slaughtered - mostly beheaded. History repeats, but hopefully the present day Jews are wise to this lie and are not suckered to slaughter again.
“Its a lie - which is all muslims do when it comes to their scriptures and their history.”
The official interpretation is ultimately based on the whims, or strategy, of the currently reigning despot. In different places and times (sometimes for centuries) Jews have been accepted within Islamically ruled countries (such as the Ottoman Empire). There is a lot of historical precedent for such an interpretation.
It seems clear that the Saudis have shifted the Party line to the new truth already. The most outspoken hardline preachers of the old Party line are in jail facing potential death penalties, and the Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca recently took the pulpit for Friday prayers, and listed instances of Muhammad getting along with Jews.
Saudi citizens who want to keep their heads attached, are accustomed to keeping a finger in the wind, to stay on the right side of whatever the official position is.
The whole Saudi-funded International missionary infrastructure will turn to any new Party line, in short order.
