To Angela: I believe the book you are referring to is by Naeim Giladi on the Jews of Iraq. There certainly is evidence that zionists agents provocateurs caused incitement to urge the Jews to leave. This idea that Jews all during there history in North Africa, Yemen, Iraq were cowering in their homes, and warding off attacks from ravenous Arabs thirsty for Jewish blood is alot of nonsense drummed up by zionist propagandists to further their agenda. Jews were certainly a minority but their history in the Arab world is far brighter than in Europe.
