It is estimated that almost 900,000 Jews were forced
from their homes in Arab and Muslim countries in the course of the 20th
century. Even the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has
twice affirmed that Jews who fled the persecution of Arab countries were indeed
refugees in every legal sense of the word.
It is estimated that Jews were robbed of more than
$100 billion in personal and communal assets by Arab and Muslim governments.
The Israeli governments ignored and refuse to use those facts to neutralize
fictitious claims of the Arab propaganda war machine against Israel. As a result, unfortunately, the world only knows
about so-called Arab refugees and their well-advertised fictitious claim on Jewish
population poll information at the time (conducted by Ottoman empire and British later - not Arab anti-Israel
propaganda) around 460,000 Arabs left currently controlled land by Israel, during the
war of Independence in 1948. They
were ordered to leave by Arab political and religious leaders. The plan was to
expose Jews, who were facing the might of Arab armies, to complete their
annihilation. It would make it easier to kill every Jew, without bothering
about identification of Arabs. Another genocide of
Jewish people was planned!
When Israel won the War
of Independence, the number of so-called Arab refugees almost doubled over
night by the end of 1948, after the UN announced that they are entitled to
refugee status and international assistance! For several more years after the
war, the world was still betting that the tiny Jewish state would disappear.
International anti-Semites were hoping that Arabs would finish what they
started in Europe!
Since then the
Arab Palestinians have been ‘milking’ the international community for almost 60
years. This is the longest running UN ‘humanitarian’ program, designed to
perpetuate Middle East conflict and
keep the international anti-Semitic flame running. It has been assisting the
mob of professional refugees in their 3rd or even 4th
in Europe created
almost 50 million refugees. Many of them received assistance and/or had been
resettled. Now they and their children are living productive and independent
lives in their own countries or somewhere else! This approach has never been
applied to Arabs who left Jewish land. They are still not absorbed by the Arab
countries, from where most of them had originally come since 1880’s. The United
Nations has never respected the state of Israel as
an independent and equal state, not according to the record of the adopted
resolutions, nor by attitude. The need of Jewish people to live in peace in
their independent state, on the land of their ancestors is completely ignored!
Jews must realise this international hypocrisy, and start to be creators of
their own destiny!
