SILENT EXODUS - THE JEWISH NAKBAH 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.

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.
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.
