    It is obvious that there are many divisions, many issues that stem from religious intolerance. Perhaps if we paid a little more attention to the ones who successfully overcome the preset boundaries there would be more appreciation for the necessary differences.

    One amazing example:

    There are Arabian Jews and that is not a commonly known fact:


    Jews In The Arab World​


    Before 1948 an estimated 900,000 Jews lived in what we now know as the Arab states. Since then, the vast majority have left, forcibly in many cases, bringing the total down to fewer than 8,000. The conflict with Israel has undoubtedly been a major factor in this.

    The history of Jewish communities in the Arab world is not widely known and tends to be denied or played down by Arabs, often for political reasons.

    The aim of this page is to cast a little more light on the subject through links to relevant websites (but please note that we are not responsible for their content). Recognising that this is a sensitive topic, we have tried to include a balanced range of sources. Readers are invited to contact us with suggestions for additional links or other improvements.

    Although Jewish-Arab and Jewish-Muslim relations are often viewed in terms of conflict, the historical reality is a lot more complex, as some of the links on this page show. Some writers argue that conflict is by no means inevitable and that, in broad historical terms, Jews have been less ill-treated in the Arab world than elsewhere.
