A new hard-hitting video has been produced to highlight the plight of Jews driven from Arab and Muslim countries.
The video is billed as ‘The compelling story of how almost a million people lost everything when Israel declared independence.’
Made by the Israel Project, the video says that the declaration triggered a massive Jewish refugee crisis, their homes lost, their communities destroyed.
More controversially, Iran, Turkey and Pakistan are among the countries whose Jewish communities are listed as having been expelled.
