Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs
in response to reader comment: they dont get the culture so they pick on language

The plight of the Mizrahis is a forgotten element in the discussion about Middle East refugees. Further, more examination of the experience of Jews in Rachid Ali's Iraq and the Maghreb under Vichy and German occupation needs to be exposed to the public.

While the role of Middle Eastern Christian communities in the ongoing surrender to militant Islam is far from exemplary, they are also under a great deal of pressure, and the world needs to speak up--especially in Arabic!
