With thanks: Nelly and Sussex Friends of Israel
A rare mention of Jewish refugees from Arab countries was made today in the British House of Commons.
Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow, spoke at a debate about Israel settlements. Three minutes into this clip, he says:
“Not mentioned this far are the Jewish refugees forced out from Arab countries. There are 2.3 million of them. These people are never mentioned…Clearly there should be a home for them. When housing developments are put up for refugees from Arab countries we should not condemn them, we should congratulate them.”
