Über diesen Titel


For more than half a century the history of the Middle East has been one of violence and strife -- an ever increasing cycle of bloodshed which presents a constant threat to world peace. The dispute is commonly seen as one between Arab and Jew over the same stretch of territory; in fact the issues involved in the conflict which has deprived the Palestinian people of their homeland are far more complex. What is not generally known is the vital, if unwilling, role played by Jewish communities in the Arab countries. There is increasing awareness of the suffering endured by the dispossessed Palestinians in their refugee camps; yet the story of how and why the Jews were made to leave the Arab lands in which they had lived for many hundreds of years has never been told. Now, in this carefully researched and documented work, Marion Woolfson, a journalist who for a number of years has specialized in writing on Asia and the Middle East, reveals the poignant and dramatic history of Jews in the Arab world from the time when they were 'prophets in Babylon' until the present day; and in the course of her account she throws new light on many events which have been distorted by propaganda. She shows how the unfortunate Jews of the Arab countries were used as pawns in the struggle to establish and maintain a Jewish state in Palestine. And in telling their story, she also raises important questions about the future safety and well-being of other Jewish communities throughout the world.
