Pictures Of The Holy Land From 1800’s and 1900s’

We often hear the claim, that Jews are colonizers that came from Europe to occupy Arab Palestinian land. They claim as well that Palestine was a thriving country with a huge population and Jews stole their houses. There are thousands pictures that show a different picture, pictures that usually are ignored. I could not bring you all of them, but I did some. Enjoy 🙂

Please notice the way they are dressed, we see many pictures with caption that say here Palestinian Muslims in the land hundreds years ago. However, many Jews that lived around the Middle East as well as in the Holy land, dressed as same as Muslims. The best way to prove it the pictures below in the western wall prayers.

As you go ahead with the picture you will see that surprisingly, after more Jews immigrated back to their homeland, new buildings are seen and more people. As well, the area is better kept more trees and paved ways.
