Jews From Arab Lands Seek Justice


When Israel was established in 1948, Arab regimes expelled many of their indigenous Jewish populations that had been living there for centuries. Of course not a popular topic, I mean Jews get kicked out of places all the time right? So the Jews lost property, valuables, and businesses. Well now, they want justice, legally of course.

An international conference promoting the rights of Jews from Arab lands, held in London, is intended to be the springboard for a worldwide campaign to highlight their plight.

The conference, held last Sunday and Monday, was attended by Jews from 14 nations across the globe.

Organised by the World Organization for Jews from Arab Countries and Justice for Jews from Arab Countries, Jewish representatives from 14 nations met to create the steering committee for the International Campaign for Rights and Redress.

The conference was hosted by the Board of Deputies, the umbrella group of British Jewry.

The Jews from Arab lands were expelled or fled when Israel was created. They came from all Arab lands, eg Libya, Egypt, Syria, Morrocco, Algeria, Lebanon.

  3. I don’t really understand that last comment, can you help me get an idea of what you mean?

  4. It was meant as a dual comment-one, that the chances of Jews getting any kind of reconciliation from the injustices done in Arab lands seems slim given an apethetic/anti-Semitic International community towards Jewish concerns. Second, in that light, they would have better chances of regaining their financial losses investing in something crazy like private road construction as posted by the spammer. It had no bearing on the effort to regain a sense of acknowledgement and respect in the International community or their efforts to document the injustices as proof of their exile. There was no harm meant by the comment, only a criticism of both the scams of spammers and those injustices in Arab lands.

  5. It’s just one of the hazards of hosing a blog on Blogger.com. Spammers are able to automatically post their ads on other people’s blogs, and the only recourse is for the blogger to remove it themselves. Blogger.com doesn’t care to put anything in place to make sure comments are legit, or at least, hand typed.

    It’s like someone walking down the street with advertisements sticking them on a school, a shul, a car, a person…
