All those who blame the US for the final disappearance of the Jews from Iraq don't know anything about history. The beginning of the end of the Jewish community began already in the "Farhud" massacre of Jews in 1941 under the Rashid Ali pro-Nazi regime. Things deteriorated after that. Most of the Jews came to Israel in 1950. Saddam Hussein organized a public hanging of a number of Jews in 1970 and most of the rest got the message to leave. A typical example of "Muslim/Arab" tolerance!
