Skip to comments.65th Anniversary of the Baghdad anti-Jewish Pogrom (Mufti's legacy of Arab racism & Islamic Jihad)
Posted on 06/06/2006 2:27:12 PM PDT by PRePublic
65 years ago on this day, Iraqi Arabs launched a Nazi-inspired two-day pogrom, the Farhud, which would anticipate the end of some 2,600 years of Jewish life in Iraq. In remembrance of this tragic event, Judeoscope presents The forgotten Holocaust Pogrom a short film produced by the International Sephardic Leadership Council documenting the Farhud and its exclusion from Holocaust scholarship and commemoration, as well as other relevant online articles and resources.

The Sephardic Holocaust Project Sephardic Holocaust Project grew out of an expansion of the earlier Farhud Recognition Project (FRP). The FRP was developed because while the entire world knew about the affects of the Holocaust in Central Europe, few knew it had extended outside of Europe. As an example of this, while most have heard of Kristallnacht, few had heard of the Farhud, where Arabs trained by the Nazis in Baghdad, killed, maimed and committed numerous atrocities against the Jewish population on the two days on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot in 1941. When we telephoned Holocaust centers around the country to initially discuss the Farhud, very few even had heard of it.

The same Mufti that has led the massacre of innocent Jews in Hebron on 1929, of course long before the Arab Muslims came up with the fake "occupation" excuse for their bloodshed.
In fact, the Jews began by buying land that was pretty much useless for agriculture (the vast majority of the country, due to raising goats). The drained swamps (leaving enough left for water fowl), they carefully built up the topsoil on barren land by manuring and importing soil from other parts of the country. In short, their industry began to turn a dsert into a garden. The Arabs were shamed by their own lack of initiative, plus the effendis felt threatened because they began to lose fellahin labor to the Jews. Much of the historical hatred of Arabs in this region is based on a major-league inferiority complex. Much of the rest is based on hate propaganda spewed by the Arab MSM. Arab and Islamic culture provides the remainder.
What does the mainstream media know about the deserted land before the 1880's?
ARAB SETTLERS I would like to see a headline like that.
Yes. Most of the country was deserted and stripped of vegetation by over-grazing. Arab settlers began to move into the country because of ZIONIST industry. Also, between 1948-1967 both Jordan and Egypt sent thousands of petty criminals and other social dregs into the WB and Gaza Strip. Thousands more poor Bedouin drifted in. All of these people were able to obtain forged UN ration cards. It was common for each person in a family to get hold of as many as a dozen ration card apiece (the extra rations would be sold for cash). They would go to different distribution centers so they wouldn't be busted by some observant official. The census of these territories was based upon the number of ration cards issued, so the numbers of these "refuges" has always been vastly inflated. Do you ever hear any of this on the Lamestream Media? Their silence indicts them and makes them little more than a propagand tool for HAMAS and Co.
