Palestinians are not all Muslims. Palestinians are consisting of Palestinian christian and Palestinian Muslims but the percentage of Palestinian Christian has greatly diminished since the Israeli occupation especially during the Deir Yassin Massacre of 1948. As the stories of Palestinian Christian is not widely told, many people seem to forget their existence and take for granted that all Palestinian are Muslims and their plight has been forgotten.

The Muslims and Jews both claim that Palestine is their land at that they have been living there for thousands of years. The Muslims do not have any proof of their claim, but the Jews do.

The Muslims had control over Palestine, where Jesus lived and died (especially Jerusalem, which is located in Palestine). The Crusades were an attempt to put Christians back in control of Palestine. The Crusades were for the most part a failed military disaster, and finally the Christians and the Muslims came to an agreement: The Muslims would continue to control Palestine, and the Christians were allowed to visit there and make pilgrimages to Holy Sites in Palestine.

Jews first fought for Palestine in the Biblical Period (around 1000 BCE). Muslims first fought for Palestine in 634 CE. If the question means to ask when they first fought each other for Palestine, there were pogroms and violent outbursts between Jews of the Yishuv and Settled Arabs of Palestine as early as the later 1920s.

Caliph Omar of the Rightly-Guided Caliphate conquered Palestine from the Byzantine Empire. While it is true that Jerusalem was entered without bloodshed, the conquest of Palestine was actually quite violent. The critical battle was the Battle of Ajnadayn (in Beit Guvrin, Israel today) in 634 C.E., but others included the Battle of Dathin (in Gaza) in 634 C.E. and the Battle of Pella (in Jordan) in 635 C.E. The Muslims lost Palestine while there were the Crusader Kingdoms (1099-1291). The Muslims regained Palestine afterwards by the Ayyubid Caliphate, led by Saladdin. The Muslims lost Palestine again in 1919 when the British took over Mandatory control. The Muslims have regained power over Palestine only in certain areas, such as the Gaza Strip and the West Bank Zone A.

Muslims and Jews have been fighting over Palestine for thousands of years. Both religions claim that the land is holy and was given to them by God, and both religiously are right.

Palestine is very important to Muslims. Palestine is the home to many Musims, including my own parents. I am Arab American and just as important my American pride is, so is my Palestine pride. Everyone has a natural love and respect for their homeland. It is also said that Day of Judgment will happen, once Musims are freed of this occupation, in regards of Isreal's hold on Paalestine.

Answer 1The Muslims first conquered Jerusalem and entered Palestine during the second Rightful Caliph Hazrat Omar (RAU) without bloodshed. It happened in 7th Century CE.Answer 2The first Muslims came to Palestine when the territory was conquered by Caliph Omar in the 630s CE. However, Non-Muslims (both Jews and Christians) remained the second-class majority in Palestine until the mid-1700s. Muslims then became the majority population, primarily through conversion. The Muslim population grew much more quickly in the 19th century, especially after Egypt was colonized and the first Zionist pioneers came to Ottoman Palestine, but this time due to birth and migration. (This is because the Europeans' agricultural and sanitary improvements greatly increased the carrying capacity of Palestine, allowing lower rates of infant mortality as well as jobs.)

Palestine belongs to the Muslims. However, it used to be a sacred land where most of the Prophets (May peace be upon them all) were born. The Muslims believe in all the Prophets of Almighty Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) being the last Prophet. The land is considered sacred by the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims.

Muslims live all over the world & in all countries less then 15% of Muslims are Arab majority are from south asia but the prophet of Islam, Muhammad pbuh is from Saudi Arabia, just like Abraham. Jesus was from palestine and moses split the sea between yemen and Egypt and brought the Jews to palestine.

Jews call their nation Israel, and the region Palestine. Those immediately outsideand adjacent to Israel also call the region Palestine, and will presumably give theirnation the same name if and when it gets off the ground.

They call it the illegally occupied part of Palestine stolen by the Jewsby force and dirty tricks during the Nakba, or simply "Palestine".

Palestine was first conquered by Muslims led by General Khalid al-Waleed under the banner of Caliph Omar in 634 C.E. With the exception of about a century of the Crusader Kingdoms, Palestine was under Islamic control until 1919 C.E. when it came under British control. Once Palestine was controlled by Muslims, who used discriminatory practices to promote Islam, large sections of the population converted.

Muslims do not attack anyoneMuslims are defending themselves, their honor, their land, their children and their wives. God's not like injustice in any form. Now, this is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan and occupied Palestine.

The dominant conflict in Palestine is between Israelis (who are predominantly Jewish) and Palestinians (who are predominantly Muslim), but the conflict is a political one, not a religious one.

Jews and Muslims disagree over whether there should be a Jewish State, an Arab State, or both in the region of the British Mandate of Palestine.

User Avatar

They didn't exactly 'attack Palestine'. The mission of the Christian Crusaders was torescue the Holy Land from the hands of whoever was there and was not Christian.They generally slaughtered any Muslims and Jews they met on the way.
