What is the difference between a Jewish and an Arab refugee? Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon explains.
Jewish communities resettled Jews forced out of Arab countries, while Arabs and the United Nations perpetuate Arabs refugees' status, explains a new video presented by Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, whose own father was a refugee from Algeria.
Israel's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Danny Ayalon explains the historical facts relating to the issue of refugees in the Israeli Palestinian conflict. The video explains the reason there are still refugees after more than six decades is because of Arab leaders' recalcitrance to accept their brethren and the United Nations which created a separate agency with unique principles and criteria. The video also highlights the issue of the Jewish refugees who were forced out of their homes in the Arab world, and were subsequently absorbed by the State of Israel.
