Today in Religion – Water Shortage

Today in Religion – Water Shortage

In 1521, Arabs attributed a shortage of water in Jerusalem to Jews making wine.

For as long as I can remember conflict between Arabs and Jews had happened for many reasons. Today that conflict stems around land boundaries. It looks like in 1521 Arabs blamed Jews making wine for a water shortage.

Does the conflict between these two groups exist for deeper reasons? Maybe they were once related. Myths attribute Arabs as descendants of Ishmael while saying Jews descended of Isaac, both sons of Abraham. Do you think their conflicts could be some form of sibling rivalry?

Honestly, I want to know if the Jews were really making so much wine in 1521 to cause a water shortage and why they needed to make so much?
