    Dear mr Cummings: the filght of ca 1 million Jews from arab countries was a direct result of governmental policies in those countries in response to the situation in palestine and in solidarity with Palestinian arabs. the Palestinian leadership did not speak out against it, far from it ! additionally the Palestinian leadership from the mid 30's to the mid 50's was in the hands of a nazi collaborator and Israel can demand compensation for the damages from the actions of the Arab Higher Committee and its chairman Amin al-Husseini. Also for his involvememnt in progroms against Jews in Iraq. After all, in civil suits, the standard is "more likely than not" and that should be easy to prove with regards to the damages to Jews from all these entities. let's not forget the Arab League ! They too have liability exposure !! Guess what , brother C. ! The law cuts both ways. Arabs , including the Palestinians have been avoiding the bill for over 60 years !!
