Drawing from an both wide variety of sources-sermons, polemical texts, theological treatises, hagiographical and devotional works, and histories-the quantity demonstrates the emergence of a profoundly unfavorable snapshot of the Jews that confirmed a few of the stereotypes of vintage Christian anti-Semitism. the quantity, particularly, argues that the fundamental turning aspect in kin among Christians and Jews happened within the 11th century, specially the early 11th century while the 1st wave of persecutions of the Jews came about.

For it was proper, although ultimately to their confusion, that some of them should survive for the future to serve as witnesses of their own perfidy, or testimony to the blood of Christ which they had shed. That is why, we believe, thanks to the disposition of divine providence, the fury of the Christian people against them cooled. 5 Now where does one begin to demythologize the accounts of these two chroniclers? 7 Whatever the case, there is little likelihood that he acted in response to warnings from Jews in western Europe.

Thus, it appears highly unlikely that the Fatimid caliph could have had any realistic fears of European invasion as early as 1009. Nor does it appear to have been the case that our French chroniclers perceived the Jews of their region as natural allies of the Muslims.
