The truth about refugees in the Middle East

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Watch this admirably short and factual film about the origins of refugees in the Middle East and the cynicism that has perpetuated a human tragedy for 63 long years.

Danny Ayalon, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs in Israel, explains why there still are Arab refugees from the 1948 pan-Arab onslaught against the Jewish state.

He explains why there are no Jewish refugees from that same conflict although far greater numbers Jews were expelled from their homes in the Arab world in the Islamic wave of ethnic cleansing.

Danny Ayalon explains also how it is that there are 1 million Arabs living in the Jewish state of Israel, but that Muslim Arab states such as Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Yemen, among others, are either totally judenrein or virtually so, despite having had large, flourishing communities of Jews living in the region for the past couple of millennia. Their ethnic cleansing took place just 63 years ago – accompanied by deafening silence from the UN.

Double standards

TIP (The Israel Project) has put together the following brief, admirably objective and startlingly stark analysis of terrorism’s perpetrators.

When Israel deals with arch-terrorists who have a documented track record of mass-murder, there is loud indignation from politicians and organisations around the world. But when other nations deal with equally vicious terrorists guilty of equally heinous crimes, these nations are instead applauded by the very same politicians and organisations.

Double standards indeed.
