|Jewish Refugees from Arab Lands~1950|
For some time I have been interested in the Jews who originated from Arab countries. There are many stories and opinions. What there has not been in the past, is the recognition of these Jews whose numbers are estimated as being close to one million. They were brutally attacked, many murdered and almost the entire population run out of the countries in which they had lived for centuries. The fled with little more than the shirts on their backs. Many came to Israel where they faced a new set of problems, and many were dispersed to westernized countries around the world. What has not been said, is that they did not claim to be "perpetual refugees". They bore their hardships, suffered the indignities and worked hard to integrate and begin new lives.
One of my favorite sites for information is a blog called Point of No Return. There are stories, pictures, videos and much more. I urge you to visit the site and learn the truth!
