The forgotten refugees - Jews from Arab Muslim land
You have heard much & actually over the limit about the 'refugees' - Arab 'Palestinians', that were told by their leaders in 1948 to abandon their homes with arrogant "promises" of victory to ethnic cleanse the land from Jews.
Many stayed & do enjoy Israel's beautiful democracy and equal for all, but many others were displaced in camps in: Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, etc.
As if it wasn't enough, Arab leaders have constantly denied any improvement in these 'camps' so not to disturb their propaganda of demonizing Zionists and 'blaming it on Israel'.
While there's so much talk about these 'refugees' mostly not out of 'good faith' but as a propaganda tool in the wave of anti-Israelism (or anti-semitism), there's very little talk about the real expulsion, the expulsion of Jews from Arab Muslim countries of nearly one Million people, that have been living there for centuries.
Though Israel has managed to absorb these refugees and incorporate them in it's democracy, the Arab leaders still persecute the Arab 'Palestinians', in Syria (Hama massacre), Lebanon (constant wars), Jordan (black September) Kuwait, Saudi Arabia (as Saudi king Fahd said: "next to the Jews we hate the 'Palestinians' the most").
Nor do the Arab vicious leaders let their conditions be improved.
Jewish refugees from Muslim lands that:
were forced to leave their birthplace due to intimidation from their governments and neighbors or;
foresaw the eventual persecution at the hands of the governments of their host states and their neighbors.

Jewish refugees from Arab countries (Israel-Wat)
In 1945 there were more than 870,000 Jews living in the various Arab states. Many of their communities dated back 2,500 years. Throughout 1947 and 1948 these Jews were persecuted. Their property and belongings were confiscated. There were anti-Jewish riots in Aden, Egypt, Lybia, Syria, and Iraq. In Iraq, Zionism was made a capital crime. Aproximately 600,000 Jews sought refuge in the State of Israel.1 They arrived destitute, but they were absorbed into the society and became an integral part of the state. In effect, then, a vertible exchange of populations took place between Arab and Jewish refugees. Thus the Jewish refugees became full Israeli citizens while the Arab refugees remained "refugees" according to the wishes of the Arab leaders.
