SILENT EXODUS ( UPDATED 2015 ) Pierre Rehov (www.MiddleEastStudio.com)
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.

OPERATION MAGIC CARPET 1949 + THE ONGOING RESCUE OF THE JEWS OF YEMEN Shalom Israel 2016 (9.36) This historical video documents the dramatic and clandestine rescue of over 48,000 Jews from Yemen. Since that exodus, small numbers of Yemenite Jews have continued to return (or make Aliyah) to Israel. This video shows the emotional regathering of long separated family members - seeing each other for the first time in over 40 years.
The Bible prophesied over 2000 years ago that although the Jewish people would be scattered to all the nations of the earth, God Himself would regather them to their promised land.
Today in 2016, there remain 50 Jews in Yemen facing an uncertain future.
