The Tomb of the Patriarchs is divided so that it is impossible for everyone to visit every grave. Other Jewish holy sites in the West Bank are inaccessible to Jews as were all of them when Jordan controlled the region from 1948-1967. Jews were banned from Jerusalem in 135CE but were able to return some yeare later. This pattern was repeated frequently for over a millenium with Muslims or Christians suffering the same treatment depending on the ruler. Since the earliest census in the 19th century, Jews were always the majority in Jerusalem.
