Cudos to Canwest reporter Steven Edwards who picked up on a report by Justice For Jews From Arab Countries which discovered documents that point to an Arab inter-state "collusion" to persecute Jews in Arab countries after Israel’s creation.
The new assessment comes ahead of the peace conference in Annapolis, Md., "where the rights of millions of descendants of up to 600,000 Palestinian refugees of the Arab-Israeli conflict will be discussed — but not the rights of Jews squeezed from Arab countries.?"
"Today comprising 22 countries, the Arab League had seven members in 1947, the year documents say its political committee drafted a Text of Law concerning Jews. They were Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen.
The draft law calls for registering all Jewish citizens of Arab countries, and freezing their bank accounts to use the money to help fund "resistance to Zionist ambitions in Palestine." This would happen even to those Jews prepared to join an Arab army. A Jew considered an "active Zionist" would be interned as a political prisoner. Such Jews would see their money confiscated.
Brackets written into the draft law suggest it was intended as a template: "Beginning with (date), all Jewish citizens of (name of country) will be considered as members of the Jewish minority State of Palestine," it begins."
