I don't think it's possible to discuss the enmity between Jews and Muslims without discussing religion.
At the bottom of it all, to simplify it- it's sibling rivalry. As per the bible, they shared a father. And it all went downhill from there.
Jews, especially in Israel, are still pretty ticked off that they are not allow to explore and study the area where they believe the central area of
the last Temple was: The Dome of the Rock now stands on top, and no excavation is allowed. Each faith claims this as a holy area, and neither is
willing to compromise. To take that further, they both claim the entire area of land they both live on as theirs and theirs alone. Oddly enough, I
have a micro version of that happening here. My husband and his brother were both left this house. Neither is willing to move, and neither wants to
live with the other. It's a constant war here.
