Claims of Jews from Arab Countries

To: Dr Zvi Shtauber

Foreign Policy Advisor to the Prime Minister's Office


It was a pleasure meeting you at the meeting with the Prime Minister, and I enclose herewith a copy of my Journal The Scribe, which you may find of interest.

I am glad you took on board the remarks I made at that meeting about the claims of Jews from Arab countries. Not only the personal assets of those who were forced to leave, but the complete rights of our community, which constituted nearly a third of Baghdad's population and was predominant in the economy and finance of Iraq. While the Palestinians clamour to return to their homes in Israel, we cannot now go back to Iraq, but there is no reason why our full rights are not taken into account in the context of a comprehensive settlement in the Middle East.
