    There is no easy answer to this question. But as odd as it may seem, both Anti-Semites and Zionists took part in this Dirty War, which Caused Jews to Leave their Countries of Origin. In 1951 the Hagana launched an "Operation" in Baghdad. It involved using Anti-Jewish Terror in order to Scare Jews to Leave Iraq and Emigrate to Israel. The Operation was so secret that the State of Israel Archives still Refuses to release a paragraph from David Ben Gurion's memoirs on the Operation, written in 10 October 1960. It is believed that HAGANA operators Shlomo Hillel, Yoseph Basri, and Mordechai Ben Porat cooperated launching terror acts. . . On 14 January 1951 an explosion rocked the court of Masouda Shem-Tov Synagogue. 4 Jews were killed and dozens wounded. Israeli Sociology Professor Yehuda Shenhav maintains that a statistically significant Correlation exists between the increase of Anti-Semitic acts and the increase in Emigration of Rich and Intellectual Jews to Israel. As to Shlomo Hillel: he was rewarded by Israel for his role in the Operation by becoming nominated Speaker of the Knesset. Yoseph Basri was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court which found him guilty of Anti-Jewish terror, intended to encourage Jews to leave Iraq for Israel. Basri received - posthumously - an IDF officer's rank, and was honored by an Israeli postal stamp. Hillel said that Basri's last words were "Long Live Israel".
