  1. Main religions, similarities between the religions • Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Druze • 76.2% are Jews, and of the non-Jewish population, 68% are Muslims, 9% are Christians and 7% are Druze. • believe in one God (monotheistic), believe that we are the children of Abraham

  2. What should be done about Jerusalem? Controllers of the sectors • Jerusalem should stay open to both countries because it’s known as the religious city, so if only Israel citizens can access Jerusalem, then the Palestine citizens would probably be pretty mad about it. The Palestine citizens wouldn’t be able to worship as much as they can right now if Jerusalem was blocked from them. • The Jordanians control the Jewish quarter, the Israeli government controls the Muslim quarter, Palestine controls the Armenian quarter, and Jerusalem controls the Christian quarter.

  3. What religious claims can each side make towards the land of Israel? What religious obstacles are standing in the way of a peace settlement? • Christianity says that it’s in the bible that Israel is their land. Judaism says that they have too many historical sites for it not to be their land. Islam says the same thing as Judaism. All of this means that Israel couldn’t be the land to Palestine because there are too many sites that are owned by the religions in Israel. • Jerusalem is that main place for Palestinian Islam. The Palestinian Muslims wouldn’t be able to get to their worship place if there was a peace settlement. Palestinian Muslims already have to go through a very tough time to get to Jerusalem to worship. The Jewish settlers form communities of 400,000 people on the border of Palestine and Israel and they are all Israeli citizens, but some call themselves Palestinian Jews. If there was a peace settlement, these Jewish settlers wouldn’t be able to go to whatever state they needed to at the time.
