There never has been peace for long in that area. Those who have rulled it for a time have done so by force. These include Egypt, Babalon, Persians, Sea People ( whoever they were), Greeks, Romans, Christians, Ottomans, British, French, and many others besides the Jews. Christians, Jews and Muslems claim the same ground for their Holly Land. The Jews can win a thousand battles with the Arabs and nothing much will change. But if they lose one, everything will change for them as they will again be forced out again.
