Ethnic Cleansing of Jews from Arab/Muslim countries

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Let's face reality. To those who voted for Barack Obama because he was a friend of Israel — YOU LOST!

History ignored is disaster invited

In my opinion, here's why. Dear Leader said he didn't remember any of the anti- American, anti-Semitic rants Reverend Wright spewed during the twenty years he went to services at Wright's Trinity Church . Things like AmeriKKK and referencing the cause of 3,000 American innocents murdered on 9/11/01 as "America's chickens — have come home to ROOST!"(from America's long support of Israel ) . Seems Obama might just have remembered a few of these now famous screeds, being a Hahvad educated lawyer, and all.

"Jerusalem isn't a settlement. It is our capital." Benjamin Netanyahu

The President's clear disdain for and insulting treatment of Israel's leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, led me to believe he may have slept through a few history classes as well. Seemingly, he didn't understand enough about the Holocaust to know it has nothing to do with the plight of the Palestinians and that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish country of Israel for about 3,250 years.

I had a friend email this link a couple of weeks ago. I pondered its importance to the current conundrum of the Israeli/Palestinian "Peace Process."

To my knowledge, the vastly Jewish-populated Hollywood has yet to produce a single flick about these hidden Jewish expulsions. Movies concerning the Nazi Holocaust, like Exodus, Schindler's List, The Diary of Anne Frank and Sophie's Choice abound. Last year's contributions alone included Defiance and Inglourious Basterds.

It seems okay to bash Nazis, long after their defeat.

The void of reporting crimes of mass murder, theft and expulsion of Jews from Arab/Muslim countries may be as bad as saying the Holocaust never took place.

Below is the trail of tears; of whole Arabic Jewish communities since around 1940:

  • Algeria-140,000 Jews in 1948, less than 100 today.

  • Yemen-55,000 Jews in 1948, less than 200 today.

  • Egypt-80,000 Jews in 1948, less than 100 today. Twenty-five thousand Jews allowed to keep one suitcase each and forced to sign declaration "donating" their property to Egypt .

  • Iran-100,000 Jews in 1948, 25,000 today.

  • Libya-30,000 Jews before 1945, -0- today. In 1945, 140 Jews were murdered in Tripoli .

  • Iraq-150,000 Jews in 1948, less than 40 today. In 1941, 180 Jews were murdered in Baghdad pogrom.

  • Lebanon-30,000 Jews in 1948, less than 30 today.

  • Morocco-500,000 Jews in 1948, less than 700 today.

  • Syria-30,000 Jews in 1948, less than 100 today. Two-hundred homes shops and synagogues destroyed in 1947 in Aleppo .

  • Tunisia-105,000 Jews in 1948, less than 1,500 today.

Jews had vibrant communities in many of these countries 2,000 years before Islam was born.

Israel absorbed almost all of these homeless Jewish/Arab refugees. Currently, they and their descendents comprise over 50% of Israel 's population.

The value of Jewish property stolen by the above Arab/Muslim countries is $80 billion in today's worth.

Jewish-owned land stolen by Arab/Muslim countries consists of 38,625 square miles. Israel 's total area is 7,992 square miles.

Yet the UN provides no compensation for these Arab/Jewish refugees and does compensate Palestinians.

If Obama wants Israel to stop building homes for Jews in Jerusalem , maybe its time Israel demanded the return of the present wealth of property stolen from Jews in Arab/Muslim countries as a part of any "peace."

Lest you think this is just a Jewish problem, read the plight of the Christians in Lebanon via Brigitte Gabriel's touching book, Because They Hate. This tome tells the story of her and other Arab/Christian families' decimation at the hands of the Lebanese Muslim majority.

It's emblematic of what's happening to Christians in Muslim-controlled areas around the world. According to multiple news sources, just last month 500 Christians were murdered in Nigeria , most cut down with machetes — by Muslims.

"We will wipe Israel from the map" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

In the meantime, Israel must be dedicated to its survival. Sadly, the one country the USA could always count on may have to go it alone or, G-d forbid, look to the East for help.

Yesterday the CIA confirmed what everyone has predicted.

The Iranian nuclear time bomb is ticking.
