1. In  the late 7th century BCE, the kingdom of Judah was a client state of  the powerful Assyrian empire. In the last decades of the century Assyria  was overthrown by Babylon, an Assyrian province with a history of  former glory in its own right. Egypt, fearing the sudden rise of the  Neo-Babylonian empire, seized control of Assyrian territory up to the  Euphrates river in Syria, but Babylon counter-attacked and in the  process Josiah, the king of Judah, was killed, although the  circumstances are obscure (609 BCE). Judah became a Babylonian client,  but in the following years two parties formed at the court in Jerusalem:  one pro-Egyptian and the other pro-Babylonian.
The  conflict, which started as a political and nationalist conflict over  competing territorial ambitions following the collapse of the Ottoman  Empire, has shifted over the years from the large scale regional  Arab–Israeli conflict to a more local Israeli–Palestinian conflict,  though the Arab world and Israel generally remain at odds with each  other over specific territory. BUT A MOSQUE IN THE 7TH CENTURY !!!!!!!!!
