No. 63 - March 1995
Many Iraqi Arabs are now saying that the sufferings
of the country and its people are due to the hoba
(guilt) for having badly treated the Jews. This is
the superstitious way of looking at it.
There is another explanation. The Jews of Iraq who,
at one time formed over a quarter of the capital's
population, were well introduced in all branches of
national life. We would never have let the country's
leaders plunge into the adventures which have resulted
in Iraq's present impasse.
