History of Judaism...

Judaism was established between Abraham and God in 1812 BC during the Bronze Age where the Middle East is now. Many Jews were slaughtered during the Christian Crusades along with many Muslims. Jews were also an object of hatred during the Holocaust. In 1947 the Jews were given the State of Israel that was once Palestine. From there, the Jews have had many ongoing battles, both political and military, between the Arabs.
