Muslims controlled trade routes and port cities in between Europe and Asia therefore, Islamic merchants served as a middleman for trade
The use of camels, caravans and Berber traders increased contact with Muslims.This route connected West Africa with the Muslim world and beyond; the interaction of people from various areas allowed the spread of Buddhism and Christianity
Where are the JEWS?!
Arabs, Persians, and other groups unified politically and culturally as Muslims
Jews were ostracized in European communities and often forced to live in independent communities (ghettos)
You have to live here.
Jews living in Europe were often persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church and communities of Jews in Europe were attacked as part of the crusades
Throughout the Asian world(specifically in Southwest Asia) the monotheistic faiths were somewhat tolerant of Islam and were tolerant of “each other” provided they paid the jizya(tax on non-believers)
