Trying to make sense of a meshuga planet

Yemen is being cleansed of its 2,500-year-old Jewish community

A territorial conflict?

The plight of The Forgotten Refugees continues, while the world is preoccupied with pushing for Judenrein Judea and the 22nd Arab state.

Mere Rhetoric writes:

You think that the Yemenite Jews who are fleeing their homes of 2,500 years – do you think they’re taking their keys with them, to be passed on from father to son for the next 60 years while the UN supplies them with room and board? And if so, do you think the AP will publish surreal agitprop to criticize Yemen for this clear cut human rights atrocity, the way they demonize Israel for an Arab dislocation that is at best historically murky? I’m thinking probably not:

Yemen is in danger of losing what’s left of its Jewish community, which has called the country home for more than 2,500 years and provided its kings for a century. Growing intimidation and violence are pushing the 300 Jews left in the Arabian Peninsula country to flee to Israel or the U.S. Four months ago, a Muslim extremist gunned down Jewish-studies teacher Moshe Yaish Nahari, a father of nine, in the town of Raida, north of the capital of Sana’a.
