After the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, 850,000 Jews living for generations in Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen were forced to leave their homes and their property to flee persecution.
While the plight of the original 711,000 Palestinian refugees has been given special status by the international community, Jewish refugees have been ignored and forgotten.
We, the undersigned, call upon the UK government to ensure that the public understand the full history of the Middle East and designate 30 November as a national day of awareness where we remember and commemorate the plight of Jewish refugees.
