These Are the Facts

Israel became a nation around 1450 B.C., some 2,000 years before the rise of Islam.

Jewish people have lived in the land continuously since the days of Joshua—some 3,000 years.

The Jewish people were the main population in the land from 1000 B.C. to A.D. 637—a period of 1,637 years.

Even if the Arabs had become the main population in the land from 637 to the present—which they did not—they would have to remain the main population for 268 more years merely to equal the time the Jewish people were the main population prior to A.D. 637. They would have to live there even longer to account for the years of Jewish residency after 637.

The Muslims controlled the land from 637 to 1099—462 years. Jewish people still lived there.

The Crusaders took the land from 1099 to 1291. Jewish people there joined the Muslims against the Crusaders, who tortured and killed Jews in their quest for ascendancy.

The Muslims retook the land from 1291 to 1917—a total of 626 years. However, by 1880 the Jews again were the main population in Jerusalem, as they had been in Safed and Tiberias.

The British captured the Holy Land from the Muslim Ottoman Turks in 1917.
