Muslim World forced 900.000 Jews to become refugees

Close to one million Jews were forced to leave Muslim nations after the first Arab war on Israel.

Danny Ayalon reminds the World that both Arabs and Jews became refugees in the years 1948-1961.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon is one of 900.000 Jews that had to flee Islamic oppression after the state of Israel was reborn.

This is what he wrote in Jerusalem Post last week:

My father, his parents and family were just a few of the almost one million Jews who were expelled or forced out of Arab lands.

My father and his family were Algerian, from a Jewish community thousands of years old that predated the Arab conquest of North Africa and even Islam.

Upon receiving independence, Algeria allowed only Muslims to become citizens and drove the indigenous Jewish community and the rest of my family out.

While those Arabs who fled or left Mandatory Palestine and Israel numbered roughly 750,000, there were roughly 900,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands. Before the State of Israel was reestablished in 1948, there were almost one million Jews in Arab lands, today there are around 5,000.

Financial economists have estimated that, in today’s figures, the total amount of assets lost by the Jewish refugees from Arab lands is almost twice that of the assets lost by the Palestinian refugees.

Normally the definition of a refugee only applies to the person that fled and sought refuge, while a Palestinian refugee is the person that fled and all of their descendants for all time.

So, according to the UNRWA definition of conferring refugee status on descendants, I would be a refugee.

My comment:

Since the state of Israel took good care of its “refugee problem”, this is the forgotten part of our modern history.

Many Jews that searched for a new home in Zion, lost all their properties in Muslim nations of their origin. They were forced to leave, rejected citizenship.

The Arabs who left “Palestine” in 1947-1948 were not forced to leave. The first Jewish Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion appealed to them, to stay and help the Jewish people build a free and democratic statehood.

The Arabs who left to fight with Islamic forces to destroy the Jewish state at birth, has no moral right to call them selves “refugees”. There are two million Israel Arabs who chose to stay behind. They are Muslims who enjoy their freedom inside the state of Israel.

My comment:

If Israel give up more Jewish land, the Jews in diaspora will have no place to seek refuge in the last days. If the secular Israeli Government gives Judea and Samaria over to Islamic occupation, the Jewish nation will have another 500.000 Jewish refugee to handle.

The way Israel handled 8.000 the Israeli leadership forced to leave Gaza, is a proof that giving up land is wrong.

It is wrong, because the Bible says it is wrong.  Zion belongs to the scattered Jews who have returned home to Eretz Israel.

  1. Thank you

    Israel needs to be louder with the truth, than the Islamist with the lies.

      Also America will betray Israel. The Jewish people will have no other option than to turn to their God. When they lift their head and cry out for the Messiah, He will return. Amen.

  2. Zionism and the problems it has created, gosh. What a shame there are ‘Christians’
    who take their hearts away from the chore of saving souls and sinfully pre-occupy themselves with a Promised Land/Promised People doctrine for these latter days.

    1. Matt,

      You can be a Christian believe in Jesus Christ, preach His Word, and still believe in the promise God has for Israel. It is written in his Word, that those against Israel will be destroyed.

      What you cannot be is a Christian and hate Israel, because that would brand you a hypocrite.

      Zechariah 12
      Jerusalem’s Enemies to Be Destroyed
      1 A prophecy: The word of the LORD concerning Israel.
      The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: 2 “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4 On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the LORD. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5 Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the LORD Almighty is their God.’

    2. Dear Matt.


      It is purely by grace, that you have not been spammed on this blog. I think I did spam you once up on a time, but gave you a second chance. Zionism is not evil. Zionism is a result of agape love towards the Jewish people from a merciful and faithful God.
