    why did the jewish agency need to send so many agents to arab countries to convict arab jews to move to the new state of israel if the jews ther were so pesecuted? why did some stay and why have so many arab jews told me over the years that they have made a great mistake leaving their native countries? the issue of how arab jews wer treated in their home countries is much more complicated than israeli propaganda would have you believe. just like the hostility against us muslims after 9/11, there was an increase in hostility against jews following the independene war and the plight of the palestinians, but nothing resembling the stories of pogroms and mass looting and muder against jews. the israeli right wing has always used myths, lies and half truths to perrpetuate the sphardim hostility toward arabs and their hostility toward labor, who are considered too "soft" on arabs. they also used it as excuse of why they shouldn't return territories and deal with the refugee problem-after all, arab jews were also refugees but we settled them, why can't the arab countries do the same? except of course that by and large, the jewish arab refugee issue is a myth.
