In 1948, Jordan destroyed over 50 synagogues in the old city, of which the Hurva was but one. Why were there so many synagogues? Because there were more Jews in Jerusalem even in 1900 (before the large wave of immigration) than any other ethnic group. The Jews were the plurality in Jerusalem, among Muslims, Christians and Jews, but the Arabs then "ethnically cleansed" the Old City when they captured it in 1948, and destroyed all the synagogues. Even today they vandalize the excavations at the Temple Mount and throw priceless Jewish antiquities in the garbage, hoping to destroy evidence of the longstanding Jewish presence in Jerusalem.
