Seriously, I don't get why Jews are so disliked by either of those groups when in reality if it weren't for Judaism neither would exist.
I believe that part of it stems from the fact that they all claimed that Jerusalem was the birthplace of their religion, and, rather than sharing it, they all wanted it for themselves. Also, by nature, humans distrust those who are different from them.

And there's not just divisions between the separate monotheistic religions. Christians have fought a lot against other Christians. There have been a number of bloody conflicts just between Roman Catholics and Protestants.

Just my two cents. P=
