comment Is there any Jewish-Muslim dialogue that has come to an agreement on anti-Jewish Hadith?
Regardless of that fact...both of you together are free to make your arguments using the texts that I provided. Again...just because you THINK its biased doesn't mean a thing. Be constructive or stop wasting people's time here.

To both Ahmadi and TofeeqAhmad, if you think the answer is biased then please prove so using the sources that I provided. Just saying that an answer is biased doesn't make it go away. Either put up or don't say anything at all. As for Sunni Muslims, they make up over 85% of the Muslim world. Even if they were 'only' 80% as you claim, that is still a huge number. Notice that in my answer I did say that it is Muslim communities that use these verses to say that Jews are descended from pigs etc. The Quran doesn't specifically make that claim.

comment Most original form of the Hebrew Bible/Tenach
@Shredder I should add to the above that the Jews that I have come across have all said that they prefer the Hebrew Tanakh over any translation.

@Shredder As a Christian who talks to Jews on a regular basis, I haven't come across any Jews who don't agree with one Jewish translation of the Tanakh and disagree with another. Of course there are Jewish translations of the Tanakh that are written from different perspectives (literal, meaning-for-meaning, etc) but singling out Jews in that is, quite frankly, silly. Christians have a billion and one translations too, what shall we say about us? As for your Dan 9:25, I am aware of the verse and I'm saying this again, you should be looking at Christian translations to get what you want to see.

comment Should you greet a non-jew after washing netilat yadayim?
@user1208 I was on askmoses.com trying to ask a rabbi about this but all he said to the question was "yes", meaning you can greet a gentile. However, I am not sure about this hesek-interruption part and the rabbi didn't say anything other than yes, that's why I am commenting instead of answering. Oh, I did read on the internet that you are not supposed to ask a Gentile to help you with washing, other than that, not a lot of references regarding Gentiles when it comes to netilat yadayim. Being a Gentile, I had to even look up the term itself. :-)

comment Who are these “aliens” in Isaiah 56?
Thanks, I will check it out. I don't speak Hebrew, unfortunately, so I have to resort to English interpretations.

Do you have any quotes from the Talmud or any reference that I can maybe read? Your answer helps, that's why I accepted it but I would appreciate something from the Talmud if you knew of anything related to this. Thanks for the answer.

@jake Oh, sorry. That's as much as I could dig up with my extremely limited knowledge on the topic.

comment Difference between the Mishnah, Gemara and the Talmud
@avi, oh really? I never knew that. See, that to me counts as proof for the Mishna being older than just its written history. There are a lot of cultures still present today with very strong Oral traditions and they're traditions that are passed down from generation to generation more or less preserved.

@msh210 I can put the EDIT part of my question below the original question, if that helps.

Hacham Gabriel, thanks for the edit. I just copy-pasted the information from the meta link and assumed it was correct.

@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.

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.
