The newest offering from Prager University asks an interesting question. Why are there still Palestinian refugees and no Jewish refugees?
Dumisani Washington of Christians United for Israel hosts the video and points out a number of facts which are frequently ignored by critics of Israel.
Israel’s population is extremely diverse. People of all colors, faiths and national backgrounds make up the population of the country and more than half of the people living there are from Arab countries.
After Israel gained its independence in 1948, and was attacked by Arab countries, over 800,000 Jews fled Arab countries. Most went to Israel and the rest fled to western nations like the United States. They did not remain refugees for very long, however.
Yet seventy years later, there are still Palestinian refugees. Despite involvement from the United Nations and funding from the U.S. and other countries to the tune of a billion dollars a year, there are still Palestinian refugees in a region made up of Arab and non-Arab Muslim countries.
Jewish refugees received no financial support from the United Nations then and Israel gets none now, yet there are no Jewish refugees.
Here’s the official video description from the Prager University website:
Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees?
It’s been seven decades since the 1948 Arab-Israeli, and yet there are still an estimated 4 million Palestinian refugees…and zero Jewish refugees. With so many nearby Arab allies of the Palestinians, how did this happen? What does it say about Israel? What does it say about its Arab neighbors? Dumisani Washington, Diversity Outreach Coordinator for Christians United for Israel, explains.
