Description
(Runner-up for the 2009 British-Kuwait Friendship Society Book Prize) In the 20 years that followed the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, 800,000 Jews left their homes in Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Morocco, and other Arab countries, in large part due to restrictive governmental measures and an outburst of anti-Semitic feeling during and after the war. Some of these "Mizrahi" Jews, most of whom were not active Zionists, were forced to leave behind property of great financial and ancestral value—property that was sometimes seized by the governments of the countries they fled. Michael Fischbach has dedicated years to studying land and property ownership in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and in this book—a runner-up for the 2009 British-Kuwait Friendship Society Book Prize—he reconstructs the circumstances in which Jewish communities left the Arab world. Fischbach offers the most authoritative estimates to date of the value of the property left behind. He also describes the process by which various actors, most importantly the State of Israel, linked the resolution of Jewish property claims to the fate of Palestinian refugee property claims following the 1948 war.

"This book is a must-read for anyone dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but it is particularly relevant for Jews from the Arab and Muslim world, for whom it will provide useful and up-to-date data and a deep understanding of the issue."—Journal of Palestine Studies

"It combines the best qualities of persistence and detachment in the research process and moral commitment and empathy in presenting and evaluating the evidence gathered from research."—American Historical Review

"An important contribution to the study of Middle Eastern and North African Jews as well as to minorities studies, Israeli politics, and Jewish organizations."—Jewish Book World
