Exile of the Last Jews

Going, going...gone

Israeli sources recently confirmed Yemeni media reports that the overwhelming majority of the final remnant of Yemen's ancient Jewish community, numbering some 250 people, are looking to leave the country due to persecution and violence.

Back in June, Barack Obama said in his Cairo speech that "
Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance." Meanwhile, this is the reality, and it should not surprise anyone except for that empty-headed buffoon in the White House.

Why shouldn't it be surprising? Because:

a) Islamic texts and teachings foment hatred against unbelievers, and particularly Jews.

b) Jews in Yemen have long been known to be suffering at the hands of the Muslim population there.

c) There are historical precedents for this, not only when it comes to the relatively recent diminution of Jewish populations in the Muslim world as a whole, but also in the thousands of Jews who fled to the USA to escape from the wretched conditions they faced in the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century.

d) Just ask Middle Eastern Christians.
