Antisemitism against Jews in Arab countries has a long and rich history. In remembrance of the day of recognition for Jewish refugees form Arab countries, we are remembering the historical persecution of Jews in Arab countries in the coming days. This is the plight of Iraqi Jews:
Jews in Arab countries faced persecution, violence, land confiscation, fines based on antisemitism, isolation, and other forms of persecution. November 30, we remember the plight of the 850,000+ Jewish refugees from Arab countries from 1948-1978.
Jerusalem stabbing victim recounts being attacked this morning while waiting for the bus.
"There were not many people around, I had headphones in and was listening to music. He came near me, a young guy, and he put a knife or something in me. He ran away and I couldn't find anyone to help me. I went to the other side of the street where a bus driver helped me and called the police and an ambulance."
We are wishing her a speedy recovery and wishing that incitement and violence will end! #StopIncitement
On this day in 1947, the UN officially recognized a Jewish state in the British Mandate for Palestine. The Jews said yes, the Arabs said no. Sadly, this tradition of rejection from the Palestinian leadership continues today.
For 67 years, Israel has defended itself against enemies who seek to destroy it.
1947: Nov. 29, UN votes to recognize a Jewish state and an Arab state in their Mandate for Palestine. The Jews accepted - despite the fact their state was much smaller and comprised of mostly desert. The Arabs rejected peace and launched a war.
1977: UN deliberately chooses November 29, as "International Day of Solidarity with Palestinians" despite the continued rejection of peace and over 20 terrorist attacks just that year. Months after, Israel saw the most deadly Palestinian terror attack of its time with the Coatal Road Massacre.
2015: Nov 29, Palestinians stab two Israelis on the streets of Jerusalem during wave of terror that has seen hundreds of terror attacks against Israeli civilians, while the UN holds "solidarity events" with Palestinians.
Rewarding "bad behavior" doesn't help anyone - including Palestinians. Shame on the UN.
