At one time Cairo was home to over 80,000 Jews. Today there are 5. The mainstream (fake) media will rarely if ever discuss how Jews were ethnically cleansed from Arab lands before and after the formation of Israel. Instead, these vicious anti-Semites obsess over the fake and generational Palestinian refugees.
The cleansing of Jews living in Arab lands was an atrocity, and one of the worst cases of human rights abuse of the 20th century. Thankfully Israel absorbed the Jewish refugees of the North Africa and the Middle East. However, only two of the the massive and established Arab country’s were willing to provide a refuge to the Palestinians, who left Israel on their own volition after their leaders rejected statehood.
The story of the close to 1 million Jews who were cleansed from Arab lands must be told.
Only 5 Jews left in Cairo following death of Jewish community president.
“The Jewish Community in Cairo (JCC) has regretfully lost Marcelle Haroun, one of its pillars who will be sorely missed,” read the statement announcing her death.
By March Oyster, Jerusalem Post, July 9, 2019:
Marcelle Haroun, mother of the current president of Cairo’s Jewish community, has died at the age of 93.
Her death, announced on Saturday, leaves five Jews known to be living in Cairo, Watani International reported. The five remaining are her daughter, Magda, who heads the minuscule community, and four granddaughters. The AFP news service reported in March 2017 that there were also 12 Jews living in the coastal city of Alexandria.
Haroun was married to lawyer and politician Shehata Haroun, known as a Jewish anti-Zionist who was a member of the Communist Party of Egypt, according to the report. Her daughter told Tablet in 2013 that Marcelle was her father’s “comrade.”
Egypt was home to some 80,000 Jews when Israel was founded in 1948. Thousands began leaving in the ensuring years, and many more in two waves, in 1956 and 1967. The Harouns remained, considering themselves Egyptian first, according to Watani.
