Israel Moves at U.N. to Recognize Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries

Israel is preparing a list of Iranian violations of the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and the West. The list will be presented at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council scheduled to take place on December 19, 2019. Israeli foreign minister Yisrael Katz issued a statement, saying, “We welcome the letter presented by France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, which states that Iran is developing missiles capable of carrying a nuclear payload while violating UN Security Council resolutions. This confirms what Israel has been claiming all along. Only an effective military threat posed against Iran will deter and curb its aggression.” Reported by Breaking Israel News. Read more…

Israel also plans to present a resolution to the General Assembly asking that it formally recognize Jewish refugees from Arab countries. According to Israel’s ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, there are “an estimated 850,000 Jews who were forced out of Arab countries and Iran and became refugees in the 20th century.” Danon also said that “These Jews were subject to brutal attacks and harassment and were forced to flee leaving everything behind: in Iraq, Egypt, Morocco, Iran and many other countries. And still, we don’t hear the international community speak of them when they discuss the refugees of the conflict, perhaps because it doesn’t serve the Palestinian narrative.” Reported by Breaking Israel News. Read more…
