    all the inhabitants of Roman Palestine or Judea and Samaria have left because of persecution. none have tried to get along and become on the religion of their persecutor. Actually history favors the latter. Jews are actually killing Jews in Gaza and the west bank. Because those people are Jewish converts to Islam and Christianity, or at least a large number of them. When you look at the faces of the Palestinians they do not resemble those of Saudi Arabia or the Peninsula.Arabs. those are Levant people. The people that lived there for thousands of years. The Arab Moslem Invaders did not come in large numbers and settle the land and change the composition of the population. and the proof to that that Palestine and Syria did not have more that 15%-35% Moslems for more than a 1000 years of Islamic rule. Slowly the conversion took place during the Ottoman period. Really the Arabs did not encourage conversion to Islam because they wanted the people to pay the none Moslem Tax. But that ended with the Ottomans. they encouraged conversion to Islam. Actually when the Jews came to Palestine They destroyed the way of life that was continuing since before Christianity. Little agricultural villages that dotted the land. That was the best witness to how the jews and others lived on that land since maybe the Canaanites. They took on a different religion or religions but the way of life continued.
