Israelis and Palestinians: The Struggle to Share the Holy Land

In the Middle East, Israel and Palestine share the land west of the Jordan River. Israel is the predominantly Jewish State, while Gaza and the West Bank are Palestinian — mostly Muslim and Arab. The Muslims and Jews who call this region home share a family tree that goes back nearly 4,000 years. And today, most Arabs here are Muslim — a religion that arrived much later with their prophet, Mohammad, in the seventh century. Today, the combined population of Israel and Palestine is about 12 million — roughly half Jews and half Arabs.
