There are two competing myths, each with its own implications for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. One sees the current conflict as just the latest stage in Arabs' and Muslims' persistent persecution of Jews throughout their history. The other blames Zionism and the State of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians for having destroyed the blissful coexistence that had always reigned between Jews and Arabs/Muslims. By studying Ottoman primary sources concerning Jerusalem, let's challenge these myths.
