66. "For the most part, Jews left because of unrest caused by violence, bombings of synagogues"
I made the above statement, you posted a large amount of guff essentially confirming it, and then claimed that my post was incorrect. What part of the sentence above did you not understand?

I reiterate: officially sanctioned *expulsions* of Jews from Arab lands post 1948 was the exception, rather than the rule. Iraq and Morocco initially instituted policies aimed at *preventing* Jewish emigration. In the case of Morocco, only substantial pressure from the Israelis convinced the king to eventually allow Jewish emigration to Israel.

To suggest that this was a Zionist "plot" is beyond ridiculous. Go read over on the 9/11 board, with the rest of the conspiracy nuts.

So Professor Norman Stillman, chair of Judaic History at the University of Oklahoma, is a conspiracy nut? (His position is that the jury is still out on whether *some* of the synagogue bombings could be attributed to Zionists).

Go away. Read. Get a clue. Then come back.
