    The Golden Book of the Jews of Egypt

    Text: Ada Aharoni

    IFLAC has launched a new project, called The Golden Book of the Jews of Egypt: My Own Second Exodus, that can pave the road to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

    Out of the 100,000 Jews living in Egypt in the mid-twenties, only twenty old Jews are left there today, after their tragic uprooting. IFLAC is collecting the stories of “The Second Exodus of the Jews from Egypt,” and will publish them in a “Golden Book” in 2012. These stories will help to promote peace between Jews and Arabs, and Israelis and Palestinians, as they will clearly show that the Palestinians were not the only victims of an uprooting during the Arab-Israeli Conflict.

    The Jews from Egypt and from other Arab countries were a million when they were uprooted, whereas the Palestinians, who fled Israel at the same time, were according to UNRWA 650,000. The property of the Jews from Arab countries, who are today almost half the citizens of Israel, was hundreds of times more than the property of the Palestinians (according to the International Court at The Hague). Yet the Jews from Arab countries in Israel have not made any Intifada, and only want peace with their Palestinian neighbors.

    When Palestinians read about the historical facts above, their reaction in general, is: “So you have already paid for the ‘Sulha – Reconciliation’ when you had to flee from Arab Countries in the mid-twentieth century and to leave all your property and assets behind! So please tell your story and tell it loud, as it saves our honor and that of our people. It clearly shows we are not the only victims of the Arab-Israeli Conflict!” The important narrative of the uprooting of the Jews from Egypt and from other Arab Countries can pave the road to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

    It is urgent to collect these dramatic oral-history narratives before their authors pass away and take their stories with them. We call upon all those who would like to publish their story titled: “My Own Second Exodus” to send it to: ada.aharoni06@gmail.com as soon as possible.
