The Great Refugee Scam


The story of the Arabs who left the coastal areas of Palestine in the spring of 1948 encapsulates one of the great international frauds of the 20th century. The Arabs are the only declared “refugees” who became refugees by the initiative of their own leaders. The concoction of the monstrous charge that it was the Jews who had driven out the Arabs of Palestine was a strategic decision made by the leaders of the Arab League months after the Arabs’ flight. The Arab “refugees” were not driven out by anyone. The vast majority left at the order or exhortation of

Acknowledging the Plight of Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries


From Acknowledging the Plight of Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries: This week, before an audience of peers and MPs, an 80-year-old Jewish refugee named Sarah told the story of her traumatic departure from Egypt in 1956 in the wake of the Suez crisis.

First Time: UN Hears from Jewish Refugees of Arab Lands


UN Watch Testifies Before UN Human Rights Council on Forgotten Refugees The history of Palestinian refugees deserves international attention.

Restoring truth to the Middle East narrative


Jews have lived since Biblical times in what are now Arab countries. After Jews were conquered by Rome, Jews had to disperse, mostly to North Africa and the Middle East. Many Jews migrated to the Iberian peninsula – Spain and Portugal. They were expelled from those countries at the end of the 15th century.

The world is greatly concerned about the Arabs who fled the state of Israel in 1948, but no mention is ever made
