Refugees, Palestinian and Jewish Refugees


An American congressman is calling for Congressional hearings on the issue of Jewish refugees, urging colleagues to recall that many Jews fled Arab nations when Israel was established.

"It is critical that future peace negotiations and discussions, specifically on the rights of refugees, address both sides of the issue,  Arab and Jewish," Rep. Frank Pallone said on Wednesday, noting that Congress and the general public are much better versed in the Palestinian refugee problem.

Pallone, a New Jersey Democrat, said that approximately 1 million Jews fled Arab lands following Israel's establishment and have never seen justice.

"The fact that Israel chose to absorb and assimilate the refugees from Arab nations does not lessen the fact that they were all expelled or otherwise compelled to leave their homelands," he said.
