Why has there been constant war and strife for the land of Jerusalem and Israel since the dawn of civilization and mankind?
Answer deleted by Quora.
The first Hebrew was Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac from Sarah and Ishmael from Hagar. From Ishmael came a portion of the Arabs. Abraham through Keturah begat other children descendants of whom are to be found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and elsewhere. The Promised blessing went to Isaac. Isaac through Rebekah begat twins Esau and Jacob. Esau is also known as Edom. Jacob was renamed Israel. Esau was the firstborn but Jacob replaced him (Genesis 27:36). Esau hated Jacob and plotted to kill him.
Genesis (NKJV) 27:
41 So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob.
Many ruling elites of other nations are descended from either Esau or Jacob or both. Esau is constantly attempting to replace Jacob. That is why the Christians believe in Replacement Theology. They are dominated by Edom. This also explains white racists and anti-Jewish movements throughout the world. That is also why there is a struggle for Jerusalem. In addition descendants of Ishmael are also jealous of Jacob. Jerusalem represents the promise to Jacob. The descendants of Edom and Ishmael therefore want to gain control of it. That gave rise to the present situation and the history of conflict over the Holy City.
