Alot lead to their immigration in fact their are many ruins that lye within Israel in fact they where conquered by : assyrians, babylonians, egyptians, romans, greeks & last the muslims. Ever since the Jews went away and sinned in front of god by worshipping idols to destroting their Jewish beliefs. The Jews became isolated from one another. Some Jews in fact started Christianity lead by st.peter also known as simon st.peters goal was to influence the population of Israel about christianity and he almost succeeded. In fact because of his failure he demanded to be crucified upside down because of it. The Jews mainly expanded westward in about 150:a.d but other interpretations differ. When the muslims took israel in 780 a.d many Jews where persecuted much more. Soon all of the ancient world would blame the Jews even the christians. by the crusades the conquering of Jerusalem in 1099 A.D many Jews where let back into Jerusalem by a secret order of christians whom did not persecute Jews these weren't the knights templar this where mainly pilgrims whom wanted peace in Israel basically they united all the faiths in a certain manner. At the end of the crusades many muslims lead by Salladinn destroyed this religion of peace and conquered Jerusalem. The pilgrims where executed, but some where given a chance convert or die. Many Jews where forced into exile many fled to europe and actually blended into society, during the reanaissance Jews where given rights and where less persecuted as knowledge grew in europe many Jewish writers where proclaimed in europe some gained even citizenship and had bussinesses including merchentry (sold things) so immigration of the jews is quite mysterious, but in the book of daniel states:

When my people will return their land will never be taken away ever again!

The various efforts for peace between Israelis and Palestinians have overlooked an important factor concerning the Arab - Israeli Conflict. The displacement of 850.000 Jews from Arab countries, the loss of all their assets and property, and the hardships accompanying their migration and emigration to Israel, constitute an aspect of the Middle East refugee problem which has been neglected. To be able to reach a peaceful solution to the Conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, this neglected part of history should be amply researched and duly addressed.  The uprooted Jews from Arab countries in Israel feel that although the displacement of Palestinians is well documented and relatively well known, their own forced migration from Arab countries has been overlooked and this fact makes them rather intransigent toward a possible solution of the conflict that does not include their own heritage and history. Taking into account the forced migration of the Jews from the Arab countries as part of the tragedies incurred during this long and painful conflict, would give a better chance to peace.  Starting in 1948, 856.000 Jewish refugees were uprooted in their hundreds of thousands from the lands of their birth in which they had dwelled for centuries prior to the Muslim conquest, that is, before the Arabs came from the Arabian desert to these regions in the 7th century A.D. Until the 10th century A.D., 90 percent of world Jewry lived in regions now known as the Arab countries.In 1948 there were over 856.,000 Jews living in the Arab countries of the Middle East and North Africa. By 1976, most of the Jewish communities in these countries had disappeared, leaving behind a few thousand Jews, scattered over a number of cities in the region. These historic facts could be used to advance the Peace Process in the Middle East today, if they are presented and used in a positive way.This sad and relatively abrupt end to some of the oldest Jewish settlements in the world, is in great part due to a chain of intolerance, discrimination, degrading civil codes and often cruel persecutions which were meted out to members of the Jewish faith by their host countries, after the rise of the State of Israel in 1948. However, there were times when Jews enjoyed well-being and  a degree of tolerance and protection under the law and in some instances even rose to prominence under Arab rule.
