nothing is perfect, but jews living in arab countries were teated on the average far better than the israelis have treated the palestinian under control or even the israeli arabs. the old mantra about jews being expelled from the arab countries an dlosing everything is a gross misconception. the arab jews who came to israel wanted to live in israel, how can they claim they were expelled? many sephardim hate the arabs because they feel insecure and second class citizens in an ashkenazi dominated state, and in order to feel better about themselves they develope an hatred toward those they feel are even more despised and downthrodden.
