Saudi cleric Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan Al-Fawzan said that even though a Muslim might possess "some of the despicable and nasty traits of the Jews," one must not taunt or curse them for this. Describing these traits, Al-Fawzan said that the Jews are "the most envious of people and the most likely to use sorcery" and are known "for arrogance and for sowing corruption upon the land." His statements aired on the Kuwaiti Al-Resala TV channel on February 23.

Interviewer: "[A viewer says:] 'Sometimes I tell my brothers that they have traits like those of the Jews.' I think we have already dealt with this in the past..."

Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan Al-Fawzan: "In any case, one must not say such a thing, especially to a family member, a neighbor, or to a friend – even if they actually do have Jewish traits. Sometimes a Muslim possesses some of the despicable and nasty traits of the Jews.  

[…]

"It is known that Jews are envious by nature. They are the most envious of people and the most likely to use sorcery. They are known for arrogance and for sowing corruption upon the land. Unfortunately, some Muslims may possess some of these despicable and nasty traits. Even if a Muslim possesses some of the traits of the Jews, of the hypocrites, or of pre-Islamic [pagans], you must not taunt him or curse him in this manner."
