Justice for Jews in Arab Countries (JJAC)

A hat tip to Gail at her blog at Crossing the Rubicon2 for linking this article which describes that decades after the disappearance of most Jewish communities from the Arab world, a resolution seeking justice for Jews and other minorities who were persecuted, expelled or forced to flee the lands of their birth is being introduced into the US Senate Thursday.

“The resolution is an attempt to rectify what we call a historical injustice, that is, the cynical neglect of the international community to the plight of more than 850,000 Jewish refugees,” said Stanley Urman, executive director of Justice for Jews in Arab Countries (JJAC), an organization founded last year by a coalition of Jewish groups and dedicated to securing justice for the forgotten refugees of the Arab-Israeli conflict.”
