Jewish naqba[edit]

No mention of the jews expelled from Arab lands i.e., Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon and the loss of their possessions makes this expulsion a Jewish naqba. These unfortunates sought asylum with israel, France and North American countries. Jews from all countries facing persecution are able to find a homeland in israel. During the entebee hijacking it was the Israelis who rescued jews who were forcibly separated from non Jewish passengers on an Air France. The captain and crew members did not desert these passengers an event noted as during world war 2 the French collaborated with german occupiers and handed over women and children of Jewish descent despite the fact that the germans only asked for all Jewish males.

This is mentioned though perhaps needs expanding. Note that Israeli state hagiagraphy, as well as the views of many if not most of said immigrants, sees arriving in Israelnas an act of salvation, a 2000 year dream come true. So this is not quite viewed as a naqba, or disaster. So while a similar amount of Jews (to arabs leaving Israel) were expelled from the muslim world, without them being a military or subversive threat... The view of Israel and the expelled place this in a different conrext.Icewhiz (talk) 12:10, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Edit Requests by under-privileged editors[edit]

Near the end of the fourth paragraph is "among the most educated countries in the world with one of the highest percentage of its citizens holding a tertiary education degree". That should be "percentages" (plural). Login54321 (talk) 21:26, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

 Done, thanks. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:33, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
