It can be argued that the Ottoman Empire was the standard carrier for all things muslim, Islam back in the day! Even their leader of the most influential muslim authority agreed with the British that the Jews had a right to exist and had a right to a homeland in Palestine! But, as usual nothing's clear and exact when it comes to the Middle East. Their support fell to the wayside relatively soon after the decision was made by the global community to support Jewish settlements in Palestine, in the Middle East. As it's explained now, the very document that encouraged the acceptance of the Jewish settlements in Palestine by the Ottoman top brass was alleged to have been forged. And so the story continues.
In short, there appeared to be a tacit Recognition of a Jewish Nation, a home in Palestine by the muslims, the Ottoman empire at least.
This acceptance appeared to be in agreement with the Balfour Declaration. Following is some of that discussion...
"In a meeting in Istanbul on August 12, 1918, Grand Vizier Talaat Pasha gave Leopold Perlmutter, a German Jewish businessman and a personal acquaintance, an official statement on behalf of the Ottoman government. Formulated during a month-long negotiation with a 16-member Jewish delegation, headed by Perlmutter and comprising Zionists and non-Zionists from Germany, Austria and the Ottoman Empire, the statement acknowledged the Jewish right to national and religious revival in Palestine. "I am happy to be able to tell you that my negotiations with delegates of several Jewish organizations some time ago have led to a real result," Talaat wrote. The statement continued:
The Council of Ministers has just decided, following my statements to the Jewish delegation, to lift all restrictive measures on Jewish immigration and settlement in Palestine. Strict orders have been given to the relevant authorities to ensure a benevolent treatment of the Jewish nation in Palestine based on complete equality with the other elements of the population.
Regarding my invitation to several Jewish organizations, I declare once again, as I already did to the Jewish delegation, my sympathies for the establishment of a religious and national Jewish center in Palestine by well-organized immigration and settlement, for I am convinced of the importance and benefits of the settlement of Jews in Palestine for the Ottoman Empire. I am willing to put this work under the high protection of the Ottoman Empire, and to promote it by all means that are compatible with the sovereign rights of the Ottoman Empire and do not affect the rights of the non-Jewish population. It is my solid conviction that the special commission, which will be appointed to lay out a detailed project for this work, shall shortly complete its work. I will be happy to see the delegation here again thereafter to continue the conversations.
"We feel that the Arabs and Jes are cousins in race, suffering similar opperssion at the hands of powers stronger than themselves, and by a happy coincidence have been able to take the first step toward the attainment of their national ideals together. We Arabs, especially the educated among us, look with deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement... We will do our best, in so far as we are concerned, to help them through; we will wish the Jews a most hearty welcome home." 
Unfortunately over time greed, hatred, anger, intolerance directed towards the Jewish community throughout the globe prevailed over practicality, acceptance, and decency. Today we have the continued shared angst and contempt that the cult of islam has directed and continues to direct against our Jewish friends and us, the Christians and other faiths of the world, or so it seems.
It is obvious, from what I've read and witnessed that there was a time when someone from the muslim community was close to being tolerant of our Jewish friends. But historically it appears they've digressed, and became blatantly intolerant of others decades ago. They also appear to be content with their intolerance.
There's more interesting information to be found on Wikipedia , in Jewish records and elsewhere regarding the Balfour Declaration, the alleged forgeries and tampering that occurred.
In short, the Ottomans, the Arabs denied the authenticity of the agreement and pushed for removal of their jewish neighbors from Palestine but global powers at the time ensured the Jewish communities in the Middle East stayed in place, in their homeland, Palestine.
