49. Yes
Any Jewish person wanting to return to their ancestral homeland should be permitted to do so.

For the most part, Jews were not expelled from Arab countries post 1948. There were expulsions from Egypt following the 1956 war. Several Arab countries (Iraq and Morocco) attempted to prevent their Jewish populations from leaving. Iran has a similar policy today. Morocco is currently trying to encourage Jews to return there, without much success.

For the most part, Jews left because of unrest caused by violence, bombings of synagogues and so forth. It is still disputed whether some of these bombings were conducted by Zionists in order to prompt the migration of these Jews to Israel.
