The Forgotten Refugees

One of the biggest barriers to Arab-Israeli reconciliation is the unresolved issue of compensation for Jewish refugees who fled Arab countries in the 1940s and ’50s. A new study explores how the compensation demand arose, then fell into obscurity.

If anyone was “entitled to be compensated for losing on the bargain,” said the document, it was Israel. In fact, there would be “nothing illogical or farfetched” in a claim to Iraqi public property, which might be “raised even as a bargaining point or for mere emphasis.”
