They emigrated from Spain and Portugal when 200,000 were expelled during the Spanish Inquisition after the Alahambra decree in 1492.
They severely restrict Jewish immigration and the land purchase. At the time Israel was created, an attempt was being made to convert these registered or leased land to private ownership as long as users could prove that they paid taxes. Although the Jews produced double the tax revenues, by 1948, the assumption is that they had purchased less than 8% (6-10%) of the land of Palestine, while the Arabs "owned" about 45% and the rest was government land.
Christianity became the official religion with the Edict of Milan (313). So the Arab nations are probably descended from these children mixed with the seven nations who were driven out. When the question of distribution occurred, the land was designated as either Jewish or non-Jewish.
After this the Jews were under oppressive laws that restricted their growth. The Roman and Parthian empires are exhausted from war and the Muslim Arabs take over. Christian Europe attempts to take the Holy Land from Muslims and attacks Jews in the process.

The first revolt ended 3.5 years later in 73 AD when the fortress of Masada was destroyed by the Romans who took the 10,000 soldiers of the tenth legion to build a huge siege ramp just to destroy 900 rebellious Jewish zealots. Each man killed his family, then one killed the rest before killing himself. Hundreds of thousands were killed in the Jewish communities of Cyprus, Cyrene (Libya), Aegipta (Egypt) and Mesopotamia (Syria and Iraq) at war. So that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them as long as the heavens remain above the earth. Abraham bought this land as a burial site (Genesis 23: 15-20). The cave was used as a burying site (Genesis 23: 1-4, 9; 25:8-10; ; 50:4-13). Under Ottoman rule and previous Arab empires, the land belonged to the state.
Pagan temples and the tomb of Pompey were destroyed. The city of Jerusalem was destroyed after the second major revolt (132-135 AD). Judea was renamed Palestine and the land was completely ploughed under. In 306, the capital was moved to Byzantium (Constantinople). After 500 years the Jews rule Jerusalem and Judea for the next 80 years. (Deuteronomy 11: 21) So if there are still heavens above the earth, Israel owns the land no matter how many times God evicts them for disobedience. Abraham sent all his other children to live east of the land of Israel. Only a very small percentage of land was privately owned, while the rest was registered for private use if taxes (tithe) were paid and if it did not lay fallow for three years.
