I already stated it's the Oral Law and discussions and commentaries of both the Oral and Written Torahs.

GeraldtheGnome: Show me specific examples then and then show me the earliest known information that goes against it. I understand in a sense why you don’t like them lying about what are the earliest known words about it. I can see that I’ll have to look up the word Talmud anyway.

THE CLAIM:
“A Jew must not salute a christian.” – Gittin (62a)

THE TALMUD TEXT:
The Mishna teaches that one may extend greetings to gentiles on account of the ways of peace. The Gemara asks: Now that it is taught that one may assist them, is it necessary to say that one may extend greetings to them? Rav Yeiva said: This halacha is necessary only on THEIR holidays, as it is taught in a baraita: A person may not enter the home of a gentile on HIS holiday and extend greetings to him, as it appears that he is blessing him in honor of his holiday. If he encounters him in the market, he may greet him in an undertone and in a solemn manner, so that he does not appear to be rejoicing with him.

THE SUMMARY:
The claim infers that Jews should never even acknowledge christians. Not even greet them. This is false. First it uses the term GENTILES which does not exclusively point to “christians.” Secondly, it’s in regard to greeting them during THEIR holidays or festivals of which Jews are forbidden to participate in. If a Jew were to enter the home of a non-Jew during a non-Jewish holiday celebration, the appearance could be that the Jew is celebrating WITH them. It goes on to say it’s fine to greet non-Jews outside of their homes during non-Jewish holidays as in the market but to greet them quietly with respect so as not to appear to be part of the non-Jewish holiday festivities.

It’s ridiculous to make the claim that Jews are forbidden to greet christians. Jews and christians as well as other non-Jews have always interacted with each other throughout history. The passage simply states that Jews are forbidden to participate or even to appear to participate in non-Jewish holiday celebrations. Jews greet christians with mutual respect on a daily basis. The claim is a lie.
