The Jewish property that was seized by Muslims in Tunisia and Libya alone is estimated to be valued at $50 billion, so $250 billion total is a low figure. Nearly a million Jews were expelled from Muslim countries when the State of Israel declared its independence in 1948. That “refugee crisis” is one we never hear about, although we are regularly inundated with stories about the so-called “Palestinian” “refugees,” most of whom left Israel at the behest of Muslim leaders, thinking they would soon be back after Israel was destroyed. Instead, they became permanent refugees, subsidized by the UN, to be a permanent rebuke to Israel, passing on their refugee status to their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Absurd.
“Israel said set to seek $250b compensation for Jews forced out of Arab countries,” Times of Israel, January 5, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
Israel is preparing to demand compensation totaling a reported $250 billion from seven Arab countries and Iran for property and assets left behind by Jews who were forced to flee those countries following the establishment of the State of Israel.
“The time has come to correct the historic injustice of the pogroms (against Jews) in seven Arab countries and Iran, and to restore, to hundreds of thousands of Jews who lost their property, what is rightfully theirs,” Israel’s Minister for Social Equality, Gila Gamliel, who is coordinating the Israeli government’s handling of the issue, said Saturday.
According to figures cited Saturday night by Israel’s Hadashot TV news, compensation demands are now being finalized with regards to the first two of the eight countries involved, with Israel set to seek $35 billion dollars in compensation for lost Jewish assets from Tunisia, and $15 billion dollars from Libya.
In total, the TV report said Israel will seek over $250 billion from those two countries plus Morocco, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Iran….
