Thanks, I did not know about the existence of that page. I will update the question once more :-)

comment Is there any Jewish-Muslim dialogue that has come to an agreement on anti-Jewish Hadith?
@IsaacMoses Whoops, wrote my answer before I saw that it was being closed. In my opinion it was a question that only asked for factual information and the OP's intent was not to distribute false information on Islam regarding Jews.

I have studied Islam for over a decade (since I was 15), it will take me some time to get all my sources together, but I will write an answer for you here. Oh, I am not a Jew so I hope I can be a little impartial in this case. I will try to only write from Islamic sources so you can judge for yourself. I will write the answer only if you'd like such an answer (i.e. from Islamic sources). If that's not what you want, then please let me know.

comment Most original form of the Hebrew Bible/Tenach
Actually I have seen chabad.org style translation in most other English translations except Christian ones--who mistranslate it for obvious reasons. If you're looking for a translation that agrees with what you want it to say, then stick with what you already have.

comment Who is Moshiach Ben Joseph and what does/did he do?
@msh210 I live in Buenos Aires where in 1994 Muslim terrorists attacked a Jewish Community Center (the AMIA bombing) and the Israeli Embassy. Since then, all Jewish places have security, including synagogues, and before you can enter a place or ask someone where you can find a rabbi, they ask you, "Are you from the community?" Their way of asking if you're Jewish and when I say, "No." I get a very polite, "you can't enter" answer. Anyway, I will check out the websites mentioned in the post you linked to. Oh, the answer below is awesome, by the way.

Thank you for your answer. This is exactly what I was looking for. Because of your references (Talmud), I can now do a self-study too. Thanks again for taking the time to write this detailed answer.

comment Who is Moshiach Ben Joseph and what does/did he do?
@avi I am hoping I can find a real answer. I sent some emails around to see if somebody can send me a reply and explanation as to where this idea of Moshiach ben Joseph comes from. Not being from the Jewish community stinks because I can't just approach a rabbi and ask him what's up!

comment Who is Moshiach Ben Joseph and what does/did he do?
I am looking this up on the rest of the internet as well but I prefer to ask here because the internet is fraught with anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and I would much rather get the answer from the Jewish community rather than some hate-filled moron trying to mislead people. Anyway, I will post the answer here if I get it from a trust-worthy source. Meanwhile, I would really appreciate an answer from a Jewish person here.

comment Who is Moshiach Ben Joseph and what does/did he do?
Sorry, I should clarify. I just read the post you referred to above today when I joined this site. So I became curious as to who Moshiach Ben Joseph is. I have been interested in Judaism for a long time and have tried to study things here and there about it but never did I read anything about Moshiach Ben Joseph. Thought people here could help me out with that :-)
