EXPULSION of the JEWS and CHRISTIANS from ARAB COUNTRIES
COMMEMORATING THE EXPULSION OF THE JEWS FROM ARAB COUNTRIES Israel's Foreign Affairs Min. 2014 (19.01)
The Knesset has designated November 30th by law as a day of commemoration of the expulsion of the Jews from Arab lands. The narratives of the departure of the Jews from Arab lands differ in detail by country , and from one family to another, but in the substance the stories are similar. Jews lived in the Arab lands for thousands of years, and many of their communities preceded the advent of Islam. The Jewish communities of Iraq had existed for more than 2,500 years and were a cultural center of Judaism where the Babylonian Talmud was written and compiled. This ancient community came under attack from the Iraqi government in the wake of the establishment of Israel, and was expelled, after being physically attacked with many fatalities, and their property and assets confiscated. In this film, Aharon Abudi, tells the story of his upbringing in Iraq, and the story of his family, through the Farhud pogrom and expulsion, their absorption in Israel and a life rebuilt from the ruins.
PALESTINIAN REFUGEES and the THE EXPUILSION OF JEWS FROM ARAB COUNTRIES
On June 20th, the world marks 'World Refugee Day', commemorating the strength, courage and perseverance of of refugees. On this day, we remember the 20th-century expulsion of Jews from Arab and Muslim countries. Jewish communities in Arab countries formed a significant part of the Jewish diaspora. From 1920 onward, some 850,000 Jews were expelled from their homes – from Tripoi to Cairo, from Damascus to Baghdad.

ETHNIC CLEANSING OF JEWS IN ARAB COUNTRIES EnEvighet7 2010 (10.10)
Up to one million Jews have been forced to flee from Arab countries and hundreds of Jewish communities have been ethnically cleansed throughout this century. Most of these refugees now live in Israel and their old homes are no more. In fact, Jews who immigrated to Israel from Arab and Muslim lands and their descendants constitute about 50% of Jewish Israelis.
In the history of the Arab-Israel conflict, the United Nations have made 687 resolution about the conflict. 101 of these resolutions dealt with the issue of refugees. It is astonishing to know that NOT ONE SINGLE resolution deals with the issue of Jewish refugees from Arab countries. All 101 resolutions are about Palestinian refugees only. This is the hypocrisy of the United Nations.

A film about the mass exodus of up to one million Jews from Arab countries
In 1945, up to one million Jews lived in the Middle East outside of the Palestine Mandate and in North Africa. Within a few years, only a few thousand remained.
This is the story of the thousands who fled their homes, who endured in refugee camps, and who today quietly carry the memory of a destroyed civilization.
The Forgotten Refugees explores the history and destruction of Middle Eastern Jewish communities, some of which had existed for over 2,500 years.
Featuring testimony from Jews who fled Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Yemen, these personal stories of refugees are interspersed with dramatic archival footage, including rescue missions of Yemenite and Iraqi Jews.

SILENT EXODUS Pierre Rehov 2015 (58.39)
They were more than a million Jews. Between 1946 and 1974, this million is the number of forgotten fugitives, expelled from the Arab world, and whom history would like to forget, while the victims themselves have hidden their fate under a veil of modesty. The Jews have been living in Arabic lands for thousands of years and seemed to accept their fate forever, some even considering their survival as a miracle.
But 1948, the beginning of their exodus, was also the birth of the State of Israel.
And, while the Arab armies were preparing to invade the young refugee-country, while the survivors of the Shoah were piling up in dangerous boats to fulfill at last the return to the land of their dreams and their prayers, a few hundred thousand Arabs from Palestine were getting ready to flee their home, convinced that they would return as winners and conquerors.
They were soon going to fill up the refugee camps built on their brothers’ land, and – because of their refusal to integrate – pass on their refugee status to the next generations.
The Jews did not get any special status. They had just returned to the Land of their fathers
And if they came from Aden, Yemen, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Morocco, Tunisia or Libya, if they had lost everything and sometimes even relatives, memories and cemeteries, it is in Israel and the west that they were ready to rebuild their lives. Without ever asking for any compensation, any right to return, or even wishing that their story be told…
JEWISH NAKBA-THE JEWISH FORCED EXILE FROM ARAB COUNTRIES etai993 2010 (4.06) The Jewish exodus from Arab and Muslim lands refers to the 20th century mass departure of Jews, primarily of Sephardi and Mizrahi background, from Arab and Islamic countries. The migration started in the late 19th century, but accelerated after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Between 800,000-1,000,000 Jews left their homes in Arab countries due to persecution and anti-Semitism. Lebanon was the only Arab country to see an increase in its Jewish population after 1948.
