The ottoman Empire was ruled by one family from 1299 CE to 1923 CE
The Ottoman Turks began as small warrior bands that raided villiages on the Byzantine frontier
The Ottoman Turks were very wealthy and gained it from taxation and trade, Mostly because they heavily taxed their people especially the Christans and Jews and they controlled most of the sea trade with their Navy
They eventually developed into one of the largest and longest standing Empires in the world
The ottoman turks were known for there relentless pursuit of land
During World War 1 Great Britain relized they need t protect there connection to India
Hello Arabians Britains got a deal for you, If you help us defeat the Ottomans we will give you your own state
Greetings Jews we have a deal for you if you help us Britain fight the Otomans in this war and we will give you your own state
I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE YOU PEOPLE AS MY NEIGHBORS!
DID THE EUROPEANS EVEN CARE WHO THEY SEPARATED AND WHO THEY PUT TOGETHER!!!!
As the Europeans divided the Land they drew and divided borders that were not based on ethnic and religious groups which caused problems for the people that are still happening to this day
I CAN SAY THE SAME THING TO YOU!!
JUST SHUT UP I'M TIRED OF ALL THIS COMPLAINING!!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK!!!!!
As the Jewish numbers increased so did the tension between the Arabs and Jews
The Arabs felt betrayed that they were not given the area they were promised especially because they made up most of the population there
Under British occupation the number Jewish settlers had increased, In 1920 There would be 1 Jew to every 10 Arabs but since 1947 there has been 1 Jew to every 2 Arabs which made the Arabs feel like they were loosing control of their land
What the?! Britain lied to Us!!
What gives why are there so many Jews here?
Why are you here?, Britain promised us this land?!
The Jews argue that they did not leave their land voluntairly but were forced out by Romans so they believe they have the right to come back and claim their land back
The Jewish connection to this land did not begin with Zionism but actually started 4,000 years ago
Finally were back at our rightful home after centuries
According to Christian and Jewish sacred text God commanded Abraham to leave his land of Mesopotamia and go to the land that is present day Israel
