Expelled Jews hold property deeds on Arab lands

The issue of Jews expelled from the Arab nations is one that evades the memory of those in the Islamic world. It's a kind of selective amnesia. They desire a right of return for the "Palestinians", who left at the request of the Arab leaders, after they had decided to finish Hitler's job and wipe out those who escaped the holocaust, but at the same time deny any compensation to the decedents of some 850,000 Jews expelled from their property in the Arab nations, whose lost assets are now valued at more than $300 billion.

Heskel M. Haddad, president of the World Organization of Jews from Arab Countries is taking Israel's critics to task on the issue and adding that his organization has in it's possession, decades-old property deeds of Jews from Arab countries on a total area of 100,000 - which is five times the size of the State of Israel.

I'm glad to see that somebody has stepped up and decided not to allow this double standard "right of return" demand to continue without demanding that the other side to this story, the story of Jews expelled from Arab countries and their property taken from them, be told to the world as well.

Original story from the Jerusalem Post.
