    See http://www.mideastweb.org/palpop.htmnain Dove, the facts are against you. This is a table from the above website. You can check the quality of the website yourself. Table 10 - Population of Jerusalem until 1945 Year Total Muslim Jewish Christian % Jews 1844 1 15,510 5,000 7,120 3,390 45.9 1876 2 25,030 7,560 12,000 5,470 47.9 1896 2 45,420 8,560 28,112 8,748 61.9 1922 3 52,081 13,411 33,971 4,699 65.2 1931 3 90,451 19,894 51,222 19,335 56.6 1945 4 164,330 33,680 99,320 31,330 60.4 1. This figure is quoted widely on the Web and is apparently the Ottoman census figure. It is given for example here. 2. John Oesterreicher and Anne Sinai, eds., Jerusalem, (NY: John Day, 1974), p. 1 3. British Mandate Census of 1922 and 1931 4. Anglo American Survey, 1945 There are many Jews who are perfectly happy to leave the Temple Mount to Palastinains, but claiming the Jewish connection to Jerusalem is a trumped up is just perverse and dumb.
