Safe Mode: On
Everyone talks about Palestinian refugees, what about the Jewish refugees of the Arab world?

The nightmare of dispossession that was destined to afflict some 870,000 Jews across the Arab world - forced out or expelled with just the shirts on their backs.
Not only have few Jewish refugees ever received compensation, but their plight has never been internationally recognized. Yet, between 1948 and 1972, more Jews in the region became refugees than Palestinians (who numbered 711,000 ), and they lost some 50 percent more in assets.
But when all's said and done, if Israel were to concede an independent Palestinian state, and if agreement were reached on borders, settlements and even Jerusalem, peace negotiations would still founder on the immovable rock of the Palestinian "right of return." Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reaffirmed the "right of return" in a Jordanian newspaper interview in September 2011. Even Fatah "moderates" will not give up their "right" to Arabi

  • Since the early 40's hateful expressions and acts towards Jews in the Arab world became stronger and stronger. The peak was right after the creation of Israel, What caused Hundreds of thousands of Jews to leave, living all their property behind.
    While the Jews forgot about their past and started a fresh new start in a new country, the Palestinian refugees (and their next generations) are strill stuck 65 years in the past,wishing that one day,using some sort of magical time machine, they will get More..

      Wake up Aydeo...Arab Muslims have been killing Jews for centuries.
      You forgot the 1929 Hebron massacre?
      This isnt about {Palestinian rights or land.....its only about Islams inability to coexist and its inbred hatred of anything un-islamic.

      I get what you say about the palestinians living in the past and they should get over it.
      But they probably taking an example from jews themselves, that it may take 3000 years to get their land back.

  • Let us not forget all the torched and destroyed temples. Hell even Iran destroyed some 1000+ year old ones after their nutcase revolution in '79. On personal orders from the Ayatollah.

  • i agree something needs to be done for the jewish refugees and they need to be reimbursed. but that doesnt give israel the right to do what it does to the palestinians and their land. it doesnt mean israel can do the same. israel is supposed to be the only democracy in the middle east yet it acts like its arab neighbors and they compare themselves to the arab neighbors when it comes to a lot of things including refugees. so is israel on the same par as its arab neighbors.

      Nothing should be done for the Jewish refugees, in contrast with the Palestinians they stopped see themselves as refugees about 50 years ago...

      This item is talking only about the refugees issue, considering the fact that there is already a mutual understanding regarding the 2 state solution- what the item says is that the Palestinian refugees should be absorbed in the Arab states, just like the Jewish refugees did in Israel 50 years ago.

  • While I often disagree with Jewish propaganda, I do agree that there is insufficient media coverage of Jewish, as well as Christian, refugees from Arab countries.

  • The stats are totally dubious. They've been created by Jewish propagandists to support the Zionist State.

    More revealing is that any Muslim discomfort with Jewish citizens only occurred after the expulsion of the Palestinians.

    To see lots of Jews in a Muslim State go to Iran where the Jews are protected by the State and enjoy their life with their Islamic and Christian friends.

      We are talking here about Egypt,Syria,Lybia of the 40's,50's,60's, not about Iran of today..

      The family of my father came to Israel from Tunisia in 1967, and there was quite a good dam reason why they left their homes and everything else they knew....and no,it wasn't Zionism, it was mainly the fear they felt.

      And if we take your claims it is all lies and propanda, then we should also consider most of what the Arabs are telling about 1948 as fake and propaganda.

      Or is it you want t More..

      When were Palestinains Expelled?

      When did Jews mass migrate to Israel?

      There's a big causative discrepancy in your story.

      Of course Jews only mass migrated to Israel after 1948- Because ONLY THEN there WAS a state... They couldn't migrated before 1948 becuase....there was no state...duh...

      But main hateful acts towards Jews started since the early 40's, and of course it got to a peak during and after 1948.

      You are trying to justify the situation in the Arab world becuase of the situation of the Palestinians- it is like justifying the situation of the Palestinians becuase of the Jewish refugees in E More..
