Isaac and Ishmael: Jews and Muslims Then and Now

Jews and Muslims have had a complicated relationship from the very beginning. Today it is marked by fear, hatred and misunderstanding; but it was not always so. Centuries of coexistence
have been hidden by decades of conflict. What is the true history of Jewish life under Islam? Why is the situation so dire today, and what does the future hold?
