Iraqi Jews were expelled by Arab nationalists

"Iraqi Author Dr. Rashid Al-Khayoun: Iraqi Jews Were Driven Out of the Country by Pan-Arab Extremists, Led By Nazi Ally, Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini"

It's good to see this on Al Arabiya, one of the most popular media outlets in the Arab world.

I tried to find a link to confirm what you said. I did not see i here

I guess you mean it was on TV.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Hi John, the video I linked to is an Al Arabiya clip posted on MEMRI TV.

Those who prefer history and facts over Zionist propaganda will appreciate the following two links. It's always best to go to the source for the information and here is what the Arab Jews of Iraq have to say about the topic. They are far more reliable than memri propaganda or the stupidity of an American kid.

It's so funny to watch Anonymous Arabs calling MEMRI "propaganda" when all MEMRI did was post a clip from Al Arabiya and translated it!

LOL

Iraqi Mojo said...

Anonymous Arab Americans in southern California, I mean.

LOL

Arabs in whether in California, Mecca or Beijing do not need a Zionist outfit to translate anything for them, do they? But Arab-Americans in California who do not speak Arabic need someone to translate and all they seem to find is a a Mossad-run website. The real funny thing is that the stupid Arab-Americans who do not speak Arabic do not even understand what AlArabiya is saying. If they did they would realize that channel is also American propaganda.

Now that we have cleared that up maybe you can stop running away from what Iraqi Jews have to say without any help from AlArabiya or Memri.

Anonymous said...

Oh! And btw you proud Iraqi-American who doesn't speak Arabic, how would you know if the translation is correct if you do not speak Arabic?

Maybe you can ask another Arab-American from California who does speak both languages. :)

Iraqi Mojo said...

I understand Arabic and found nothing wrong with the translation. If you find any errors, please point them out.

I have seen Arabs do this before, calling what MEMRI does, even when they merely post clips and translate them, "propaganda" . Every time I tell them: if you find any errors in the translation, please tell us. They never offer to translate for us and tell us how MEMRI got it wrong.

But now that I think about it, it was just two or three Arabs who don't like MEMRI. I seem to remember Zeyad posting a link to MEMRI in his side bar. Every heard of Zeyad, anonymous zmal?
LOL!

Perhaps you can help verify if this translation is correct:

Or this one:

Iraqi Mojo said...

Maybe you can verify if this translation is correct:

But I doubt it.

Iraqi Mojo said...

I've read the article by Naeim Giladi. Just like an Arab to blame it on the British and Israelis! LOL. I do wonder if all he says is true. Even if his claims are true, the sad truth also is that Iraqis participated in the Farhood and continued to treat Jews like shit, calling them "traitors" and Zionists and eventually they all left Iraq. Just because European Jews take over Palestine doesn't mean the Arabs can treat Arab Jews like shit. It's a bad excuse.

Michel Aflouq and the Grand Mufti allied themselves with the Nazis. The Nazis killed millions of Jews in Europe and wanted to do the same in Iraq. It is clear who wanted to kill Jews, even if some Brits were "encouraging" it.

No you do not understand Arabic exept for a few curse words.

And yes I can translate and verify the accuracy of what you posted and anything else since I am fluent in both Arabic and English.

The Grand Mufti was not allied with Nazis, the Zionists were allied with Nazis.

Memri is run by the Mossad, but if you do not speak Arabic I guess you have no choice but to resort to them.

So the Jews of Iraq are liars and the Zionists are telling the truth? Do you really believe what you are saying or do you just need to attack Arabs and feign anger over the treatment of Arab jews?

Let the Zionists peddle their own propaganda. They do a much better job than you.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Maybe they are all telling the truth. They all seem to agree that a few influential Arab nationalists in Iraq were inspired by the Grand Mufti and Nazis. Even Giladi wrote:

'What inflamed young Iraqis against the Jews most, however, was the radio announcer Yunas Bahri on the German station "Berlin," who reported in Arabic that Jews from Palestine were fighting alongside the British against Iraqi soldiers near the city of Faluja. The report was false.'

So Iraqis killed Jews because they heard a false report about Jews fighting with the British? How embarrassing for Iraqis!

Iraqi Mojo said...

"And yes I can translate and verify the accuracy of what you posted and anything else since I am fluent in both Arabic and English. "

Then why don't you do it, zmal? I linked to a few videos above. Get to work.

Iraqi Mojo said...

"The fascist nature of Baathism I think is beyond dispute. Baathism was founded in 1943 in Damascus, under the authority of Vichy France, in collaboration with the Nazis. The Baath movement, in other words, was founded as something of an adaptation of Nazi ideas to the Arab world."

Anonymous said...

Iraqimojo let the Zionists conduct their own propaganda campaigns against Arabs. They are very good at it and can do a much better job than you. Trust me. You are not very good in this area. You spit out a bunch of jumbled incoherent garbage. They would know how to present it much more effectively.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Once again, MEMRI takes clips from the Arab media, translates them and posts them for the world to see. I find their work to be useful because nowhere on the web can one find such a great collection of Arab media. Some of it makes the Arabs look good, like Dr. Rashid Al-Khayoun's appearance on Al Arabiya. The translation was fine. If you find anything wrong with the translation, please point it out.

The director of Al Arabiya seems to be quite the honest fellow.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Can you translate this video, since it is untranslated?

العرب بعدكم بعقليت بن لادن و صدام

It's so true! LOL! Why do some Iraqis hate the Arab nation so much? Do you know?

Don Cox said...

"The Grand Mufti was not allied with Nazis, the Zionists were allied with Nazis."

I suppose one shouldn't answer trolls, especially anonymous ones, but that is the most bizarre sentence I've seen for a long time.

Perhaps we can all agree that it is a pity that the Iraqi Jews left the country.

Iraqi Mojo said...

I think I made a mistake above. Maybe a fluent Arabic reader and writer can help me with my spelling. I think it should be:

العرب بعدكم بعقلية بن لادن و صدام

What do you think, anonymous? I do need to learn more Arabic and become fluent. I've heard translators can make good money.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Don, there are allegations that Jewish leaders during WWII wanted to prolong the suffering of European Jews in order to compel the world's powerful nations to establish a homeland for the Jews. Even if these allegations are true, what the Iraqi people did to the Iraqi Jews and the way Iraqi Jews were treated during and after WWII is inexcusable. It is a stain on Iraq, just as the Holocaust is a stain on Germany.

Don Cocks, I am not surprised you have not heard this "for a long time" You have probably been in America for a long time and subjected to Zionist propaganda. I am not sure what difference it makes what my name is and anyone can use any name and lie about it, but if it helps break free from Zionist propaganda and look for the truth my name is Habis

Anonymous said...

Iraqimojo "learn more Arabic?" lol. You mean begin to learn Arabic as in aleph Baa. And if you do you may stop making dumb comments.

Are you going to learn Arabic? Or keep relying on the Mossad-run Memri? Again if you do not speak Arabic how do you know if memri is translating correctly or lying?

Anonymous said...

Al-Arabiya is American propaganda and controlled by the house of Saud. But you would now know that because you do not understand Al-Arabiya because it is in the arabiya language. lol

Iraqi Mojo said...

I understand Arabic and I did not see anything wrong with the translations. But I do need help with spelling. Can you help me by pointing out my errors, or MEMRI's errors?

Watch this video of an Iraqi tribal leader who points out the hypocrisy of the Arabs who travelled to Iraq to fight and blow themselves up.

I did not see anything wrong with the translation. Did you?

Iraqi Mojo said...

Well the House of Saud deserves kudos for allowing such a broadcast. But was it actually seen inside Saudi Arabia? Maybe they did it for the benefit of westerners and Arabs who want to improve the image of Arabs and acknowledge horrible crimes of the past. Maybe they just wanted to tell the truth, in order to heal and reconcile. Stop killing people.

Anonymous said...

Iraqimojo you do not speak Arabic at all. Cmon admit it. It is so obvious. I mean sure you would understand a few curse words or names of a few dishes but that is about all you can do. You certainly do not understand Arabic and as a speaker of Arabic I can easily see that. Al-Arabiya is a Saudi propaganda channel. It is run by King Fahd's brother-in-law. It is basically pro-US occupation of Iraq, pro-Zionist, and anti-Arab. They created this channel to please their US masters. Unlike AlJazeera, the most professional and informative news source in the Arab world, al-Arabiya is amateurish US propaganda. They do not sound quite as amateurish and stupid in their parroting of US propaganda as you do, but they are not far ahead.

Of course you would have no clue at all. You do not understand Arabic and therefore are unable to judge. Just as you have no clue whether or not memri is translating accurately.

Anonymous said...

Since you do not understand Arabic I will help you with one mistake you made. Al-Arabiya the propaganda outlet of the Saudi family does indeed support killing people as long as it is being done by US weapons. They never oppose any killing by the US occupation army in Iraq, Afghanistan, or anywhere else. They also support the killing of Lebanese and Palestinians by the Zionist entity, and they love any missile lobbed into Somalia or Yemen that kills Arabs just as long as it is a US missile.

Now that you have spent this entire thread running away from the issue, do you care to go back and read what Iraqi Jews say about their own history? If you prefer to simply say Arabs-are-Nazis and ignore the truth that's ok too. It makes no difference to me. Too bad you do not speak Arabic, you could have read or listented to Iraqi Jews tell their own story instead of throwing up links of US propaganda "documentaries" written, and produced by Americans who also do not speak Arabic and are just as ignorant as you. :)

Anonymous;

Too bad fonts are limited here. Your comments would look very proper in a Comic Sans.

Anonymous said...

I think Freeqshow is trying to be funny. Oh well. Happy New Year. Iraqimojo maybe your new year's resolution should be to beging learning Arabic. Start with Arabic 101 and in a few years maybe you can begin a serious study of Iraq and the Arab world. On the other hand those skills are not really necessary if all you care to continue doing is parroting memri.

Shai's Window said...

After reading feedback regarding the Iraqi Jews, I don't agree with the initial content of the post. Iraqi Jews were NOT expelled by Extreme Arabs Nationalists. It's a good headline to sell papers but not the truth. Having been taught Islamic history by a Jew, I can say Jews lived in harmony with their Arab counterparts up til the Ottomon empire before the Jews needed to decide to stay or leave their homelands. Iraqi jews have migrated to other lands including the United States since 1910 and such migrations became more known in the 1940's. Arabs had even extended treaties to Jews including Iraqi Jews, to coexist on the same land yet for some reason (unknown to me) they continued turning down the invitation, perhaps to preserve their identity. As the Arab Israeli war surfaced, Jews from all over started migrating from their homelands to one part of Palestine as well to other lands. Similar to many prominent religious sects that started flourishing early in time, there was always a group that migrated by choice to seek better refuge or to set up a community elsewhere. No one coerced the Iraqi Jews to leave when infact they've had amiable relations with Iraqi Muslims, more so during Saddam's rule which is something rarely discussed in the media. Until Saddam's regime was overthrown by the U.S., Saddam has a history of defending Iraqi Jews. In his eyes, these Jews were Iraqi first and they cannot be attacked for their nationality and faith by third parties, e.g. an incident where Palestinians had bombed a Jewish temple in 1992 and Saddam ordered those Palestinians to be executed. For those Iraqi Jews who are encountering unrest in Iraq today, they may be regretting the opportunities when they declined the treaties to co-exist with the local and neighboring arabs. Propaganda is created by the people for the people. History is something that is sparingly discussed in the media because there exist limitations to how much one can manipulate the truth. Also, how often do people spend their time and money buying historical facts? Less than those buying propaganda. I'm not saying the Iraqi Jews have not encountered a bad day but many religious groups encounter hardships to become a stronger community, which is why the Jews appear more united than the Muslims worldwide.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Shai, this video corroborates your claim about Saddam's treatment of Iraqi Jews.

David All said...

Mojo, thanks for linking to Dr. Al-Khayoun's interview on Al Arabyia. You are right that it is great that the explusion of Iraqi Jews is being talked about on Al Arabiya. Hopefully this is the beginning of greater freedom to discuss subjects in the Arab media that have been previously considered off limits.

Phoneyid said...

Ironic than an Iraqi would be so quick to slur his Semite Brothers with links to Hitler; there's a famous picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam... does that mean Americans love Iraqis?? Surely you'd have a clue as to that answer.

The reality is that Zionists themselves brought the Nazis to Palestine almost a decade before the Zionist touted meeting between the Mufti and Hitler.
Why they even struck a medal to commemorate the auspicious event.

Scroll down to article Friday, May 04, 2007 "A coin with two sides"

So IraqiMojo; you think Nazis and Arabs or Persians have an affinity, and were bound by their interests to perhaps 'wipe Israel' or was it 'Jews off the map' as the famous Ahmadinejad (mis)quote goes; do you speak fluent Farsi too? Perhaps you could translate that and explain why he said nothing of the sort.
The Zionists and Nazis did have a common interest, to see Jews out of Germany and in Palestine instead.

And the truth is that the bulk of the top Nazis that weren't executed were actually embraced by your America. Haven't you heard of Operation PAPERCLIP?
They taught your current homeland well, which is why after Iran's Pres Mosaddeq nationalised the oil industry, then dominated by Anglo-Persian oil (now BP), the CIA and their UK counterparts arranged for Nazi collaborator General Zahedi to lead the coup, overthrow the government, kill all members of parliament and jail the former Pres, under Operation AJAX and later bring in the vicious Shah which saw a rise of the Mullahs as a reaction. Storm'n Norman Schwarzkopf was close advisor to the Shah you know... all this is in the public domain now you know.
I think you've got it all ass about.
The Chinese have a saying for this,,, 'you've had too much of the foreign ink'

I don't speak a word of Farsi or Arabic, but I'd be happy to furnish you with a translation of the alleged 'wipe off the map' statement if you wish.
Boy am I glad Al Gore invented the internet, as he once said.

"Ironic than an Iraqi would be so quick to slur his Semite Brothers with links to Hitler"

Are we supposed to ignore the Grand Mufti's ties to Hitler, like most Arabs do?

Arab nationalists have been slandering Jews ("al Yahood") for decades. They are just beginning to replace the word "Jews" with Zionists.

I wish Iraqi leaders had acted more like the Moroccan King than the Grand Mufti.

IraqiMojo....
"Are we supposed to ignore the Grand Mufti's ties to Hitler, like most Arabs do?"

Why not, you ignore the earlier history making Zionist bond actually cast in bronze, evidenced in the earlier link I offered you; and the American adoption of NAZIs.

Iraqi Mojo said...

So I (and presumably all Arabs) should ignore the Grand Mufti's ties to the Nazis because I ignore the American adoption of Nazis and the history making Zionist bond actually cast in bronze.

Should I blame the Holocaust and the Farhood al Yahood on Zionists?

Phoneyid said...

Do a quick google and see how many pics you can find of the Mufti, and then see how many pics you can find of the medal, and then ask yourself why the absence of pics of the medal and abundance of the Mufti and ask yourself 'cui bono'.

Iraqi Mojo said...

I just googled "Grand Mufti" and found this. Is that a negative portrayal of Arabs?

Is it because the co-founder of Google is a Jew?
