To M. Weinstein: You are getting your historic facts all tangled up. The Arabs had nothing to do with the Nazis..Jews of the Middle East and North Africa were not "shipped" to the concentration camps. Some Arab politicians explored the idea of working with "powerful" Nazi Germany, before the start of WWII..Their reasons were: "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." The enemy being colonial powers UK and France... As for the slaves you mention, Partly true (servants of all colors are not treated in a civilized way throughout the Middle east). Having said that, They are not treated in a better fashion by the Israelis.
