Christians mounted a number of crusades against the Muslims between 1095 and 1289 to gain control of Palestine. Palestine was the ancient homeland of the Jews and place where Jesus Christ had lived. The spiritual heart of Palestine is the city of Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike.
Palestine had fallen under the control of a rising Muslim power, the Seljuk Turks which alarmed the Byzantine emperor in Constantinople. In response, Pope Urban II, called for a religious war to turn back the Seljuk Turks and win back the Holy Land, thus began the long lasting Crusades.
Jerusalem was a sacred city to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. It was the spiritual capitol to the Jews and home to the great temple. For Christians, it was the places where Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead. For Muslims, it was the place where Muhammad rose to heaven during his night journey.
Jerusalem had come under Muslims rule in the 7th century. They built a shrine called the Dome of the Rock to mark the place where they believed Muhammad rose to heaven. For the most part Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived at peace there. Once the Seljuks took control political turmoil made it unsafe to travel for a time. Christians feared they would no longer be able to visit Jerusalem or other holy sites.

The Ottoman Empire was an imperial state that was founded in 1299 after growing out of the break-down of several Turkish tribes. The empire then grew to include many areas in what is now present-day Europe. It eventually became one of the largest, most powerful and longest-lasting empires in the history of the world.
At its peak the Ottoman Empire included the areas of Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Hungary, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and parts of the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa. It had a maximum area of 7.6 million square miles in 1595.
The Ottoman Empire began to decline power in the 18th century but a portion of its land became what is Turkey today. In the late 1800s there were several rebellions and the Ottoman Empire continued to lose territory and political and social instability in the 1890s created international negativity toward the empire.
The Balkan Wars of 1912-1913 and uprisings by Turkish nationalists further reduced the empire's territory and increased instability. Following the end of World War I, the Ottoman Empire officially came to an end with the Treaty of Sevres.

The Safavid Dynasty was one of the most significant ruling dynasties of Persia after the fall of the Sasanian Empire, following the Muslim conquest of Persia in the 7th century AD, and "is often considered the beginning of modern Persian history". As one of the powerful "gunpowder empires" of the age, the Safavids re-established Persia's place as a key player in history. It ruled over the western reaches of the Silk Road, before it was supplanted by ocean-going trading vessels.
At its height, the Safavid Dynasty controlled not only all of Iran, Armenia, and Azerbaijan, but also most of Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia, and the Caucasus, and parts of Turkmenistan, Turkey, Pakistan, and Tajikistan. In 1726, an Afghan group destroyed the ruling dynasty. After the conquest a division of powers was agreed between the new Afghan Shahs and the Shi'a ulama.
The Afghan Shahs controlled the state and foreign policy, and could levy taxes and make secular laws. The ulama retained control of religious practice; and enforced the Sharia (Qur'anic law) in personal and family matters. The problems of this division of spiritual and political authority is something that Iran is still working out today.
