in response to reader comment: Why do we tolerate this?

I agree that most Arab countries are racist and apartheid; fact: it is dangerous or even deadly for Jews to live in or visit the majority of Mustlim countries. Prior to the establishment of Israel in 1948, there were substantial Jewish populations in various Arab countries, totalling approximately 800,000, but we (I'm a Jew whose family originally came from an Arab country) were either forced, coerced or frightened out of those countries by hostile Arab populations, some of us fleeing with only the clothes on our backs. Most of us fled to Israel and our numbers exceed those Palestinians who say they were displaced by the establishment of Israel - hence my belief that Palestinians have no right to any kind of reparations as it's more than a total wash.
