Response to Here’s What Palestine Looked Like In 1896:
Let’s not forget that Palestine in 1896 also included what is now called Jordan so that population of 500,000 included the east bank as well as the west bank areas. If you take the population proportions of the whole of Israel, PA territories and Jordan in 2010 it reads: Muslim 58%, Jewish 38%, Christian 4%. As this film points out, the Jewish community in Jerusalem even in 1896 was the biggest religious group in the city.
