Moses Maimonides (1135—1204), original name Moses Ben Maimon, was a Jewish theologian, jurist, philosopher, and physician, described as the foremost intellectual figure of medieval Judaism.

Maimonides formulated the "13 principles of faith", which have become widely held and are considered to be the cardinal principals of faith for Orthodox Jews. Notably, that the entire Torah (both the written and oral law) are of divine origin and were dictated to Moses by God on Mount Sinai and will not be replaced or changed.

Critics have accused him of being a Gentile-hater and racist.[1]

Politically correct source such as Wikipedia state nothing on this.
