Tuesday 27 November, 6 – 7 pm, Westminster. Henry Jackson Society. Lyn Julius author of Uprooted: How 3,000 years of Jewish Civilisation in the Arab World Vanished Overnight.
What are the root causes of the exodus of Jews from Arab lands and how do they still afflict the Arab and Muslim world today? The issue of the Jewish refugees foreshadowed the flight of other non-Muslim minorities from the region. Does this point to a dysfunction in Arab society and an inability to tolerate the ‘other’? Jewish refugees and their descendants now form over half the Jews of Israel. What implications has this important factor hold for a future peace settlement with the Palestinians?
