    When Sultan Beyazid II welcomed in the Sephardim, he said “Spain’s lose will be my gain.” The Sephardim had a 100% monopoly in the medical profession in the Ottoman Empire, because they revitalized the teachings of Hippocrates in Al-Andalus.

  4. More Jews should remember that Muslims were not always archenemies and instead Christians were. They still are.

  6. This sounds all very good but they were still dhimmis in Muslim land. I will research this but I do not believe this is the whole truth. About the Christians yes it is historical but Jews in Muslim lands are never safe. The Golden age of Al-Andalou was also a myth. Read Bath Yeor's book on that. She is a great historian.
