Did Muslims and Christians and Jews live in peace in Palestine before World War 2?
NO. It is very unfortunate that this myth is widely
believed and circulated.
The idea that there was peace specifically in Palestine prior to World War II is fallacious. Palestine had been the site of numerous militias and violent activities perpetrated by both Arab Jihadists and Zionist Settlers during the Interwar period. From 1936-1939 there was even an Arab Revolt against both British authorities and the Zionist Jewish Yishuv. Prior to World War I, there were violent attacks by Muslims under the protection of the Ottoman Banner on Jews and Christians in the territory to recover extra funds for the government. The idea that the British Mandate of Palestine was peaceful actually runs counter to historical evidence. The Pogroms in Safed and Hebron in the 19th century are further evidence of the inequality and problems between the Arab Muslims, who considered themselves to have a superior legal and political position and the Non-Muslims, namely, Jews, Christians, Druze, and Baha'i.
It was Palestine, a small country mainly populated by Arabs, with some Jews and Christians. It was run by the British as part of the British Empire. They called it The Palestine Mandate.
Muslims - 23% of the world population Christians - 31% of the world population
This is actually incorrect. There are roughly 2.1 billion Christians and 1.6 billion Muslims. As a result, there are more Christians than Muslims.
Yes, there are more Christians than Muslims in the world. Both religions are the largest population religions in the world. Muslims account for around one fourth of World population while Christians account for around one third of world population.
Statistically, Christians are more over the world. Muslims account for around one fourth of World population while Christians account for around one third of world population.
yes, there are more Christians than Muslims in the world. However, number of Muslims is growing faster than Christians. Both religions are the largest population religions in the world. Muslims account for around one fourth of World population while Christians account for around one third of world population.
Why do Muslims say they do not hate Christians when they kill them all over the world and then celebrate it?
You are referring to two different groups of people. Some Muslims hate Christians. They kill them all over the world and then celebrate it. Other Muslims would never dream of killing anyone. Those are the Muslims who say they do not hate Christians - because they don't.
The Quran does not teach Muslims to reject all Christians, in fact the Quran in chapter 5 mentioned that the closest to the Muslims in faith are the Christians, because amongst the Christians one will find people who are devoted to learning, who have rejected the world and they are not arrogant. Unfortunately they are some people who like to pit Muslims against Christians to serve their own agenda...the Quran addresses the Christians with great… Read More
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.
Because for Jews, christians, and Muslims it is a holy city that they can come to, to bring peace and harmony among all people Because for Jews, christians, and Muslims it is a holy city that they can come to, to bring peace and harmony among all people that makes no sense because not everyone in the world are Christians, Muslims, or Jews.
No Followers of Islam are less in number than followers of Christianity. There are more Christians than Muslims in the world. However, number of Muslims is growing faster than Christians. Both religions are the largest population religions in the world. Muslims account for around one fourth of World population while Christians account for around one third of world population.
Arab people most of them are Muslims & some are Christians.
Most Arabs are Sunni Muslims, but a significant minority are Shiite Muslims, Baha'i, Alawites, Christians, and Jews. It is worth noting, though, that most Christians and Jews in the Arab World do not identify as Arabs.
Christians started earlier than Islam. Islam was started in AD. Christian also started AD But I only think is 1 AD because Jesus Christ is not born on BC times or years... There will be more Christians than Muslims on the World.
It depends entirely on the Christian. However, most Christians in the United States support Israel over Palestinian and most Christians in the Islamic World support Palestine over Israel.
They fight in the Middle East, but, get along elsewhere in the world.
Muslims are known through times to be the most open and tolerant religion. During the persecution of Jews by Christians at med evil times. Jews only sanctuary was amongst Muslims in Islamic nations. That is one of the reasons that there are so many "Arab Jews" in the world.
The Quran gives people their ranking in the world. It does give their identity though if they are Muslims (really great ones) Non-Muslims (Christians, Hindus, etc;) or Muslims who say they are but don't act as if they are...(worst of the worst)
christians, Muslims, Jews
The christians are more in number then the Muslims.
Only Christians and Muslims believe in Jesus pbuh and in his return to the world before the End of this world. In that repect Christanity and Islam are very close religions. Judism doesn not give any respect to Jesus or Mary.
Well Golly. Christians today call it Israel. Christians before 1948 called it Palestine. Christians before the first world war called it the Ottoman Empire. Christians who lived between 1187 and 1291 called it the Ayyubid dynasty. Before Saladin defeated the crusaders in 1187, Christians called it the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Before 1099 it was called part of the Fatimid Caliphate. Before 969 it was part of the Rashidun, Umayyad and Abbasid Caliphates. Before 638 it… Read More

They were fighting over Jerusalem to be specific. And it was simply for control over the religious capitol of the world, as Jews, Muslims, and Christians, the three core religions of that region , all congregated there. And the Muslims and Christians battled for control over this land, as they wished to appease their God by controlling that area.
Answer 1 Hate is a very strong word. Presumably some Orthodox Christians hate Muslims, but undoubtedly very many do not. Answer 2 Orthodox Christians do not hate Muslims as an article of faith or belief, but enmities exist on a national or regional basis since many of the states of the Orthodox Christian World have been on the border and at war with the States of the Islamic World, especially the Ottoman Empire. This creates… Read More
Muhammad and Jesus are not similar. But the the Christan God and Muhammad are similar because Christians and Muslims believe in the same god.

Jesus and Muhammed not so much. Christians believe God created the… Read More

The Zionist had their eyes on Palestine.before world war 1 Jews population in Palestine consisted of… Read More
Christians and Jews are referred to as Ahl El Kitab or people of the book aka ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS... Muslims see Christians as believers of God, but that they also wrongly attribute Jesus as a deity.

The Christians gave up on life they thought it was the end of the world while on the other hand the Muslims thought it was a blessing for their sins. _______________________________________________________________ Both Christians and Muslims are human and worship same God. They both prayed God to forgive them and save them.
Internal conflict between Latin Christians and Greek Orthodox Christians prevented a prolonged unified fight against the Muslims. The majority of the Muslims were Sunni so they didn't have a similar issue. Also, the Holy Land was located within the Islamic World, giving the Muslims the advantage. Finally, the Western Europeans were dealing with a continuous line of barbarian attacks from the north. This disallowed them from fully focusing on the Crusades.
Christianity developed out of Judaism, originating in Palestine in 33 CE. Today, it is estimated that there are approximately 2.18 billion Christians throughout the world.
Before the start of Islam, the dominant religion in the Arabian peninsula was paganism, although there were significant minorities of Christians and Jews. The dominant religion in Palestine, Syria, Turkey and North Africa was Christianity. There was a small minority of Jews. The dominant religion in the Persian Empire, consisting mainly of Iran and Iraq, was Zoroastrianism, although there were significant minorities of Christians and Jews.
A: There were nine crusades against the Muslims in Palestine, and during this time the crusaders committed all kinds of atrocities, but history does not generally highlight the manner in which captives were killed. In 1099, the First Crusade took Jerusalem and massacred the entire population - Muslims, Christians and Jews indiscriminately. Mary B. Cunningham says (A World History of Christianity, edited by Adrian Hastings) the crusades were murderous, intolerant and deeply destructive in large… Read More

The same way as the Christians and the Jews say it was made as they are all based on the old testament.
In West Bank and Gaza: 50,000 (fifty thousand Palestinian Christians) "less than 2% of the population", the majority is in Bethlehem (about 30,000), unfortunately christians are immigrating and seeking for better opportunities because of the political situation and economy in The Holy Land. In Israel: 150,000 (One hundred fifty thousand originally palestinian christians) "2% of the population". In the Diaspora: 1,500,000 (One million and five hundred thousand).

Following the end of the First World War, the British classified the 800,000 inhabitants of Palestine according to religion: 650,000 Muslims; 80,000 Christians; 60,000 Jews. Thus, Christians represented approximately ten per cent of the entire population. In the period leading up to the Israeli declaration of independence, most of the non-Jewish population had been driven out of what is now Israel, to provide land for the incoming Jews. Christians, who were classified by the Israelis… Read More

The largest religion in the world is Christianity with 2 billion followers; Islam is the second largest with 1.6 billion followers.
You can make any religion your choice no matter where you live. Muslims, Christians, Jews, and others are found all over the world.
That is impossible to tell, and is completely a matter of opinion. There are more Christians in the world than Muslims so i guess you could take that as your answer. You could also note that Christians have been responsible for the development of more technologies, ideologies, countries, empires, and sources of international exchange than have Muslims.
