Akko (Acre) is a towns in northern Israel, which borders in its south with the northern shores of Akko's Bay and to the West - the Mediterranean.
Akko is one of the oldest port towns in the world, its history documentation begins in the Early Bronze Age.
For many years, the town was the key to the occupation of Israel by foreign forces.
Its location on the broad coastal strip makes it possible for convenient access through it and into the Galilee inland.
Akko had its ups and downs during history and changed hands many times.
Akko reached its peak when served as the capital of the Crusaders Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 13th century and much later under the rule the Ottoman leader Ahmed al-Jazzar in the late 18th century.
Since the 19th century the town's importance diminished relative to Haifa, which became the main port city of the north.

IN 2001 Old Akko was declared a WORLD HERITAGE Site by UNESCO. Seven years later, in 2008, UNESCO declared the BAHA'I WORLD CENTERS in HAIFA and AKKO Another WORLD HERITAGE SITE, which some of them, including the most holy place of Bahai religion - Al Bahg'h, located in Akko. The towm is the only site in Israel appears in two different announcements on the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO



THE JEWS IN AKKO

At the end of the Second Jewish Temple period (1st century BCE until 70 CE) many Jews were already living in the town.

After the outbreak of the Great Jewish Revolt in 66 CE against the Romans, Gessius Florus carried out a terrible massacre the Jews of Akko, while he was aided by the Hellenist Syrians who lived in the town.

Akko port was used by the Roman troops during the Great Revolt, to which Vespasian and his army arrived, and then organized for the occupation of the Galilee.
In the period following the destruction of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and the end of Jewish self-government of Israel (70 CE), Jews kept settling in the Akko, and it is mentioned several times in the Talmud. (google...)

During the Crusaders’ rule in the 12th and 13th centuries CE, an important Jewish community developed in the town.

Must skip about 6 centuries since it will be too long...
After the Ottomans rule and as the result of the British victory over the Ottomans/Turks in WW1, and after 30 years of the British Mandate over Israel, and according to the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine of Nov. 29. 1947, Akko was to be included in the Arab state that was to be established.
Since Arab leaders in Israel rejected totally the partition plan and started the war on the Jewish community with the help of troops from neighboring Arab countries, the war of Independence broke out and as a result of it, Akko was captured by the Israeli forces.

Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the town is one of the Israeli towns where Jews and Arabs live together in coexistence.
