Six-minute-video: 820,000 Jewish refugees

By Ambassador (ret) Yoram Ettinger 
This week’s document is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Irving Moskowitz, a modern day Maccabee, a giant path-breaking builder, a tree with deep roots and solid trunk, a no-nonsense, Mentsch, Zionist, philanthropist, physician and businessman, an American patriot and a second-to-none proud/concerned Jew and family-man, whose legacy is sustained by his right-hand Woman-of-Valor, Cherna, and eight children, who – like the late Irving – never get off a bucking horse.

6-minute-video : The 820,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands 
Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger, “Second Thought: a US-Israel Initiative”
YouTube 6-minute-video on-line seminar on US-Israel and the Mideast

# 15: ; the entire video-seminar:

1. Unlike the 1948 320,000 Arab refugees, the Jewish refugees did not terrorize their host countries; did not join invading military forces; and did not collaborate with Nazi Germany.

2.  The persecution and expulsion of 820,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands exceeded the scope of the Palestinian Arab refugees, and occurred before, during and following the 1948-49 Arab war on Israel.

3. On November 14, 1947, before the war, Egypt’s UN representative, Heykal Pasha warned: “The partitioning of Palestine shall endanger a million Jews in Moslem countries…”

4. On March 1, 1944, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the top Palestinian Arab leader, incited in an Arabic broadcast from Nazi Germany: “Killing the Jews would please God, history and religion.” 

5. The persecution of Jews in Arab lands has persisted since the rise of Muhammad who, in 626 AD, beheaded, enslaved and expelled the three leading Jewish tribes of Arabia.

6. The Nazi “Yellow Patch” originated in Arab lands, where Jews – and other “infidels” - were forced to wear a “Yellow Badge of Shame.”
