Jerusalem and the Jewish people are so intertwined that telling the history of one is telling the history of the other. For more than 3,000 years, Jerusalem has played a central role in the history of the Jews
It is also important to state, that the Arab countries have expelled over a million Jews from their countries, Jews who have lived there for over 1800 years, the Arabs confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and Real Estate 5-6 times the size of Israel - 46,000 sq. miles - 120,000 sq. km. Many of the expelled Jews died due to hardship and starvation and about three quarters of them were re-settled in Greater Israel. Talking about travesty, this is the ultimate travesty; you kick the Jewish people out of their homes for 1800 years, the resettle in Israel and now you want to kick them out again in their own ancestral land.
