Comptroller Blasts State for Neglecting Restitution of Jewish Property in Arab States

Even if peace broke out tomorrow, Israel couldn’t file a claim because it hasn’t done its homework on the assets left behind when Jews immigrated from Iran and Arab world after 1948.

State Comptroller Joseph Shapira issued on Wednesday afternoon a scathing report on the state’s failure to take action toward the restoration of property that was lost when hundreds of thousands of Jews living in Iran and the Arab states came to Israel in the years after independence in 1948.
