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.

Good news: apparently, it’s OK to be a Jew in Bahrain. The king even appointed a Jewish woman to be an ambassador to the US and Jewish leaders to the Parliament. Not too bad in comparison with other Arab countries, especially considering that the total number of Jews in Bahrain is 36.
Bad news: according to the head of the Bahrain Human Rights Society:
“We always believe here that control of America is governed by the Zionist lobby. The media and the money are all in the hands of the Jews. We believe if we have a Jewish ambassador and Jews in the Shura Council, this is a positive indicator for the country.”
The emphasis is mine. A weird combination of ZOG conspiracy theory and practicality.
