Sudan Anti-Semitism: Macaque Monkeys Come From Jews

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                       

When adults call other adults derogatory names, they are acting like foolish children.  Don't they know the old saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me?"  Mus'ab Al-Mosharraf of Sudan is a blogger on the Elaph website that has topped all silliness.                                   
Pigs are not to be eaten by Jews.  

Macaque Monkey-not eaten by Jews
Mosharraf, a Muslim in Sudan,  is busy calling us Jews names that he has heard many times before.   "Mosharraf goes on to site a famous passage in the Koran stating that Jewish people are "the offspring of apes and pigs," an oft used trope designed to denigrate Jewish people. 

 According to MEMRI, the term "offspring of apes and pigs" originates in the Koran in Verse 65 of Surat Al-Baqara, in Verse 60 of Surat Al-Maida, and in Verses 163-169 of Surat Al-A'raf. The parables describe Allah punishing the "Sabbath peoples" for violating his instruction. 

First of all, it is laughable to me that anyone not Jewish would accuse the people who were first to be taught about Sabbath to be accused for violating someone else's instructions.  We were taught that Moses's directions were the word of G-d and not to follow false prophets even though there would be others saying they were to be followed.  Jews were not under Mohammad's jurisdiction and were not obeying anything but the law of Arabia and their own laws.  
Apes today are threatened by mankind and their loss of land.  
Mohammad was born in 570 and died in 632.  Even in those days, Jews knew they were not descended from apes and pigs, but in G-d's image, and they knew who their ancestors were as these Jews kept an account of their family genealogy.  Genealogy was part and parcel of the Torah.  So anyone saying such things, even way back then before science, looked stupid!  
Angry man of Sudan-maybe angry because he's getting a rotten education.  
It looks like Sudan should have a re-haul of its education for someone to think that people could come from animals or that animals could come from people!

 Mosharraf's twist to this old anti-Semitic slur is that macaque monkeys come from Jews!  I guess he has a thing against these poor monkeys, natives of Indonesia among other places.  " 

These monkeys range from Japan to Afghanistan and, in the case of the barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus), to North Africa and Southern Europe.   About the only humans that could fall for such nonsense would be 2 year olds.  
Here a South Sudanese man is holding a HKG3 in their Civil War.  Too much fighting and not enough thinking is happening here.  

" By virtue of its proximity to Egypt, the Sudan participated in the wider history of the Near East inasmuch as it was Christianized by the 6th century, and Islamized in the 7th."  It was the ancient home of the kingdom of Kush mentioned in the Bible.  
Jewish faces, and proud of it!  
Sudanese wouldn't have had the opportunity to know any Jews very well.  Jews had visited the Sudan from remote times.  The constant wars keep tourists away.  In 1885, the Mahdi forced all Jews and Christians to convert to Islam.  The community dated from the end of the 19th century, but few Jews live there today.  So, you know what this means.  Chances are good that some high ranking Muslims might have Jewish ancestors!   

PS:  This accusation is the same that the Ayatollah and Ahmadinejad of Iran have said about Jews.  It's really immature to be people to say such things. It shows the level of social intelligence.
