Hearing on Jewish Refugees to be Held in Congress

In a an ostensible effort to get Keith Ellison's head to blow right the hell up, the US Congress will be holding hearings next week to discuss the nearly one million Jewish refugees that were created by the Arab-Israeli conflict.

From the Israel National News

( The Congressional Human Rights Caucus (CHRC) of the US legislature is set to hold a first-of-its-kind hearing next week on the hundreds of thousands of Jews who were forced to flee their homes in Arab countries as a result of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The July 19 hearing in Washington, D.C., under the heading "Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries: Truth, Justice, and Reconciliation," is to be hosted by the CHRC in conjunction with B'nai Brith International and Justice for Jews from Arab Countries. It will be the first time that the US Congress will hear testimony on the issue of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.
In what has to be one of the world's most glaring example of hypocrisy, Arabs, Muslims and other Jew-hating liberals have screamed for years over the Arab refugee problem that was largely created by Arabs (by leaving the state of Israel prior to the 1948 invasion, though they planned to return once the Jews were annihilated,) and then exacerbated by the surrounding Arab states when they refused to repatriate the fleeing Arab masses when their beloved armies got their butts kicked--instead forcing them to live in refugee camps for public relations purposes.

Little mention was ever made of all the Jews that were kicked out of Transjordan upon the splitting up of the Palestine Mandate,or of the many other thousands of Jews that have been kicked out of Arab and Muslim dominated lands since. Of course, Israel did what Arab countries have failed to do, and adopted their own people back into their homeland without a quibble.

As far as I'm concerned this hearing is long past due. Hopefully at least one person from the press will be able to tear himself from whatever protests the gentlemen from CAIR will be able to organize, long enough to write a paragraph or two about the hearing. After all, there should be plenty of journalists left to cover Keith Ellison's response (if his head has been duct taped back together) before he ventures to the fiery podium.
