Excellent Article...

Liberals throughout the world want to blame the existence of Israel for all the Muslim terrorism in the world. But the attacks and persecution of Jews in Muslim countries has been happening since islam was first conjured up.

This is an excellent summary of the various pogroms that targeted Jews in muslim lands dating back long before there was even a possibility of a Jewish state. I encourage you to read it. You can learn much about the present from the past...

Here is a short excerpt, and then the link.

Close to a million Jews lived in Arab countries at the time of the establishment of the State of Israel. Just a few live there today. Most left because they suffered from pogroms and the threat to their lives. It was a crueler expulsion than the one suffered by the Arabs of Palestine, who paid the price for the declarations of war and annihilation made by their leaders. Even the Jewish property that was confiscated or abandoned as a result of the expulsion is more valuable than the Arab property that remained in Israel.

Various investigators have tried to estimate the value of the confiscated Jewish property following the forced departure of the Jews from Arab countries, compared with the Arab property left in Israel following the forced departure of the Arabs. Economist Sidney Zabludoff, an international expert in the field, estimates that the value of the Arab property is $3.9 billion, compared with the value of the Jewish property which is $6 billion (at 2007 values).
