From my current studies, I’m under the impression that the Muslim forces took Jerusalem in 637AD.
It would appear that between 637-1060 (Before the introduction of the Seljuk Turks) the area was relatively peaceful-the Muslims, Jews and Christians freely traded.
Why did this change after 400 years? And-it would also appear that the Muslims were still neutral to the Jews even up to the First Crusaders taking back Jarusalem. Why the animosity towards Christians but not Jews?
If someone can help clear up some of this history and controversal questions I’d much appreciate it.
