Jews from Arab countries demand UN recognition

Seventy years after the exodus and expulsion of some 850,000 Jews
from Arab states and Iran, the heads of communities of Jews from Arab
countries are demanding the United Nations officially recognize the
suffering they were forced to endure. Arieh Kahana writes in Israel Hayom (with thanks: Lily)

In a letter to U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres, community
leaders, among them Dr. Shimon Ohayon, director of Bar-Ilan University’s
Dahan Center and chairman of the Alliance of Moroccan Immigrants wrote,
“While the U.N. organizes events to mark the departure of 450,000
Palestinians from Israel upon the establishment of the state, following a
war imposed on Israel, we do not see recognition of the expulsion of
Jews from Arab countries.”

They said, “We believe the U.N. strives for justice for all refugees
around the world, including Jewish refugees who were expelled from Arab
lands. We therefore seek to establish a memorial day for the Jews’
expulsion from Arab lands.”

  • Why would mizrahim waste their time with such a hostile organization when they could be doing something more productive? At best, that pile of sh*t would actually recognize their suffering but then twist it into something more sinister.
