Oh, No! It's O Jerusalem

The book is now a film.

At their site, they have a timeline.

It starts when?

70 AD when Jerusalem is destroyed (which allows the Arabs to still claim they were here before the Jews 1500 years previously because they, now don't laugh, were the original Jebusites.


The Jebusite Arabs founded the City, according to current available archaeological artifacts some 5,000 years ago, during the bronze age, and named it Uru Salem – the City of Peace.

The next is 636 when Calif Omar conquers Jerusalem and the Muslim occupation begins.

Okay, two points for using the term "conquest" and "occupation" in an Arab context but what happened to Bar Kochba in 132-135? What about the Mishna and Gemara 250-500? What, we Jews weren't here at all?
