Youre like anti-truth. Everything that is wrong, if anycares to find a wrong opinion. Just read your posts.
There are Jews living "peacefully" in Muslim lands? Please read a book for once in your life. You might actually learn something.
There are pretty much no Jews left in the middle east aside from a very small 5,000 person community in morocco - down from some 300,000 50 years ago
and an even smaller community of 500 or so people in Yemen.
Why did they all leave? well, given they didnt leave till after the formation of the state of Israel; it wasnt zionism. They left because the abuse
became too great to handle. They were forced out; and when they left, they took nothing that was theirs. The splendidly just Arab governments wouldnt
dream in a million years of compensating their dhimmis or "Yahud Kalabs" for property they left in an an Arab/Muslim state. In their minds; they
should consider themsleves thankful that theyre even being allowed to leave. Look up operation magic carpet for instance. The sadistic yemenite
government wouldnt let the jews of yemen - who have been there even longer then Islam has existed - to leave, thus Israel had to hash up some massive
evacuation mission to take all those who wanted out.
Look at Iraq in the 1960s and 70s with its public hangings of Jews - sometimes very wealthy and prominent Jews
800,000 Jews left the middle east to seek haven in Israel; their sole state, while others went to France and America. This btw is what refugees do.
They find a new place to live, and go on with their lives.
The only community youre trying to point out is the one in Iran. What you DONT know, obviously in your profound and glaring ignorance, is that about
half of those Jews have been there since the Judean exile 2600 years ago; WAY WAY before the time of Islam. Some 1000 years before it infact. Read the
book of Esther for information on it. So, such Jews who stay in Iran have a profound pride in maintaining that ancient community, even though the
state of Israel has been reestablished and they would be much wiser to leave Iran and move there. The other half of Iranian Jews are from Iraq; when
in the 60s and 70s when abuse - both financial and physical - became too bad to tolerate, many Iraqi Jews snuck into Iran.
The Iran they were sneaking into wasnt the post 1979 Islamic republic but that of the Shah. An officially secular state where Jews lived with greater
security and ease then they do now. Although since the revolution, attacks on Jews have been rare, that sentiment does not exist today. Some of the
worse and most virulent anti-semites are persians. I would know, because my sister is best friends with a Persian girl whos boyfriend, and his group
of friends - all persians - hate without a shred of sensibility, Israel, Zionists and Jews in general.
You have to be a complete idiot to think it is safe for Jews to stay in Iran. If war ever breaks out; those Jews will experience what the Jews of
Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Iraq etc experienced after the 1948 war. This is typically how muslim react. (and in fact, this is how human beings react.
After WWII Czechoslovakia and Poland ousted some 11 million - yes, quite an enormous number - ethnic Germans. Compare this event to the 700,000
Palestinians the Arabs told to leave Israel before they attacked Israel. )
