Many of the Jews from arab countries left willingly due to their zionist aspirations. To equate the injustices experienced by Palestinian refugees to that of Jewish refugees leaving arab countries is a sick and false recount of history. For a jew, leaving an arab country for Israel was a national aspiration, a dream shared by his/her forefather, a dream that came true. For a Palestinian kicked out of Palestine, the result was completely different, it was a national tragedy, a nightmare, a humiliation, there was no where else to go to. Not all Jews from arab countries had their assets nationalized, many of them sold their assets or smuggled them to Israel. Palestinians on the other hand were ALL forced to leave with none of their assets or possessions.
