To: Yaakov Sullivan. Yes, in some times and places Jews the situation for Jews in Arab lands was dire while in other times and places they fared better, just as in European lands. What is disingenous is your assertion that the situation for Jews in Arab lands was "better." With the exception of the Shoah and the Chmielnicki massacres, the overall situation for Jews under either culture was quite similar. The real difference between the fate of Jews in Arab lands and those in European lands, is that Jews in Arab lands had a free Jewish State where they could seek refuge, unlike those exterminated in Europe who were barred by the British at Arab insistence from what was supposed to be a land of safety. And the figure of 1 million Jewish refugees is quite correct, though only about 70% of that figure went to Israel, the rest choosing either France or America as a land of refuge from Arab persecution.
