    You're comparing apples and oranges. The analog to ousted Jews is the hundreds of thousands of Pal refugees forced out of Israel and not allowed to return like all other war refugees since the 19th century. Does Israel commemorate them? No way. It stole their property and gave it to its own people. The Zionists are the ones that started ousting of people by race in the M.E., as shown by the fact that so many Jews lived in arab countries until the Naqba. Had the arabs started the process, it would have started before 1950. Had arabs treated Jews like Jews treat Pals, the Jews would have left of their own accord. The only reason the Zionists let a few token Pals stay in Israel was the strenuous objection of the Western Democracies (mainly Britain and the US) to the ongoing ethnic cleansing circa 1948. Had the Zionists refused, Britain, the US and the UN would probably not have recognized Israel and it would not exist today.
